Eynesbury [?] July 30/80 / / Inspector Hare / / Sir / / I met Captain McMahon yesterday in town, and he told me that an opinion of mine expressed in a Railway carriage and reported to you again had caused you pain. I have therefore now to express my sincere regret at having formed and expressed such an opinion on mere newspaper and other reports which I have since ascertained were incorrect. / Trusting that this apology for my indiscreetness will be acceptable to you. / / I am Sir / Yours obediently / S T Staughton /
