A PALPABLE BLUNDER.
TO THE EDITOR. Sir,— ln your issue of yesterday I notice a cablegram to the effect that Lord Aberdeen, along with Lord Hartington, had been denouncing Mr Gladstone in reference to the Irish question. While this may be true as far as Lord Hartington is concerned, I am afraid —or rather, at least, I hope—it is a mistake as far as the Earl of Aberdeen is concerned, for he has all along, as far as I am aware, been a strong supporter of the Grand Old Man. Should not the message be that Lord Hartington, at Aberdeen, blamed Mr Gladstone, etc. ? I should be glad to know if the cablegram as published is right.—l am, etc., K. M‘L. Dunedin, October 8, [ln all probability our correspondent has rightly read the telegram. Lord Aberdeen, as most people know, is a fervent admirer of Mr Gladstone and a strong believer in his Irish policy.— Ed. E.S.]
