Transcript: 

8th. 10th. Came to London, (48 Grosvenor St.) for good to-day.
11th. Ottley came back. - Lunched with Burnett Stuart who is going to New Zealand as D.M.O. - with Godley as C.G.S. and E.S. Heard! as D.M.T. "As English my lord Spry said "What I like about that fellow Heard is that he doesn't take any damned interest in his work"
12th. Finished draft report on postal censorship briefly the conclusion is that existing powers are sufficient until war is declared, that the precautionary period is perhaps the most important & that afterwards any powers required will be readily conceded. The difficulties are so great owing to the volume of correspondence that there is not very much to be done. - Rose to see me to lunch.
Sub. Ctee [Committee] on the treatment of enemy ships on the outbreak of of War - Ld. Hardinge of P. [Penshurst] Eyre Crowe, Sir H. Llewellyn Smith, Sir C. Lucas, Blackwell
