-who represent the Crown in this matter, to attend for them and enter a stay of proceedings in this case.
I telephoned Mr. Darrach as to the indictment and he informs me that no indictment has been lodged with him. He thinks an indictment should be drawn and that the stay cf proceedings should be inscribed upon it. I hardly know what course to take under the circumstances but you are at liberty to treat this letter as a stay of proceedings or evidence of the Crown's intention to enter a stay of proceedings upon any indictment that might be found or presented in accordance with the information and commitment.
You are at liberty to notify the judge of the ccntents of this letter and to intimate that so far as the Crown is concerned there will be no necessity for his attendance at the court house on Friday next to deal with this case.
If you require anything further you might let me know and I will do my best to adjust matters so that the case may be finally disposed of as before stated.
