Friend the Under Secretary for Foreign Affairs. When the whole of the Papers in question had been received, there would be no objection to lay them on the table. The last despatch received from India intimated that other Papers on the same subject were about to be sent home, and he therefore thought it would be improper to produce only a, portion of them.
