Letter from Lewis Harcourt [Secretary of State for the Colonies], to WSC, [First Lord of the Admiralty], reporting that South Africa had declined Britain's offer of Australian troops, as they were confident that they would be able to deal with the situation with their own resources. Harcourt also offers congratulations on the destruction of the [German cruiser] Emden, hoping that the Japanese fleet would help in rounding-up remaining German ships, and explains that he has been kept at home with heart trouble.
