March 27, 1915 (12th Parliament, 5th Session)

Conservative (1867-1942)


The telegram bears date
the 27th. My hon. friend says it was sent cn the 23rd, and it would certainly appear from the statement he has read from the telegraph company as if undoubtedly Mrs. Richard had sent the telegram on the 23rd.

I am not disputing that fact at all; but I would say that in some way or other this message was sent back and forth to different places, and when it was sent to Halifax, the captain of the Canada was not there. It bears the date of the 27th. That, however, does not affect the merits of the case in any way.
