That is the answer. Will you read the acknowledgment of the receipt then? - I am sorry; I am unprepared as to that. You will have to give me a little more time.

And between now and tomorrow morning you will be able, perhaps, to get the papers for us? - Yes, my Lord. (Adjourned to tomorrow at 10.30 o’clock.)
