SIR RICHARD WEBSTER.
TO THB KDITOB,
Sir, —Your footnote does not satisfy the objection I made to your article. I found fault with the statement that Sir Richard Webster, after informing the House that he had handed evidence to Sir Charles Russell of Pigott's incredibility, had afterwards receded from that statement and had been forced to admit that he had only supplied him with a letter from Soames to Pigott. I say again that Sir Richard Webster made no'such admission. If he did, I ask for its reproduction. lam aware that Sir Charles Russell could not have read the enclosure which exposed Pigott's character, but that fact does not justify the assertion that Sir Richard Webstor was driven to the admission you impute to him.—l am, etc., J.R.S. Dunedin, June 12,
