Jerusalem (Apr. 24)
Lord Melchett has been taken ill during his stay in Palestine, and has undergone an operation in Jerusalem. The operation was not serious and has been completely successful.
About a fortnight ago, Lord Melchett was present at the laying of the cornerstone of a memorial to his father, the late Lord Melchett, at Tel ###ond, and in his speech he declared: “I shall continue my father’s work, and will show my devotion to Palestine by deeds”.
