Date15 February 1900
Extent2 ff
Content DescriptionReports that he has been seconded, and asked Col. Mesham to take over from him as Commanding Officer of Denbighshire. Regrets that he will be unable to attend a meeting, and doesn't think Col. Mesham will be able to go either. Hopes they will raise enough money for equipment for home yeomanry, and thinks it unfair that they are expected to fund the Imperial Yeomanry. States that large counties like Cheshire waste money by giving each officer £250 each for equipment, and Northumberland raised £41,000.
