In order to prosecute the appeal and at the same time to lighten the labour of individuals effectively engaged in it, the meeting resolved itself into about a dozen groups each of which will deal with a special section - geographical or commercial - of the interests involved. An earnest desire was expressed to secure your co-operation on the West Africa group of the City Committee..' Written at 9 Egerton Place, 8 August 1912.
