May 7 1880

Dear Sir,

Queen vs. Carroll et al.

[...]I send you a letter from Wm. Donnelly with what seems rather a wild suggestion. I wish something could be done for the poor fellow. He ought at all events to leave Lucan for his own safety, although perhaps it is as well he stays there in the interests of the prosecn [prosecution]. He is sharp, & may find out something. I fancy he thinks of nothing but the murder. I answer his letters soothingly. [...]

Truly yours,
Charles Hutchinson
