[quote="24th"] but that his portmanteau had been handed to Miss Colenso unopened. Amongst the papers in this portmanteau was a despatch from Lord Chelmsford placing Durnford in sole command of the troops and therefore it could be assumed that he had been responsible for the massacre. It is possible therefore that Longhurst was guilty of make a false statement and that Miss Colenso in her turn was guilty of concealment.[quote]

Thats not true.

Trooper Pearce and Surgeon Gubbins took papers from it.

The portmanteau was not handed to Nell Colensoe.
