Download PDF for this date

A window of the British Embassy here was broken today by a stone wrapped in rags containing a message demanding removal of Sir Arthur Grenfell Wauchope as High Commissioner of Palestine. Two kronen were enclosed with the message as compensation for the broken window.

The message also demanded that Jewish self-defence be permitted in Palestine.
