Mr W. P. Roberts earnestly
requests that Mr Phelps will

call on his case the first
thing this morning. There
is no reason to believe that
it will occupy more than
a very short time

Mr R. is at Newport
on the defence of Mr.
Frost and his confinement
is a serious injury to his client.

Mr Phelps in acknowledging Mr
Roberts' note of this morning begs
to refer him to the Magistrates
who will assemble at the Westgate
Hotel this morning at 11 o'Clock
Mr. P will also communicate
Mr Roberts' application to
him and will inform Mr Roberts the result

Dear Sir

I beg to thank you
for your note.

I applied to the
Magistrates yesterday two or
three times and Mrs Frost
has made several applications
to the Mayor - and in every
instance very courteous replies
have been received - but they
tell me that you have the
whole management as to the
order in which the cases
will be heard

This morning I will again
apply to the magistrates though I fear
if some arrangement is not made before
they meet that I shall be too late as Mr
Harris will then have received the list of
those who he is to take up. I trust you
will assist me and am

Yours faithfully WP Roberts Tuesday
