In the afternoon came Mr. H.S. Wellcome and C.M. Firth, and a little later, Mr. Curry, Director of the Sudan Education Department, brought by Mr. Crowfoot. Wellcome wants workmen again, and agreed to increased wage and other conditions quite readily. The men are eager to go under the new conditions. As Firth is going, and as I cannot find work for so many highly paid men, I shall let them go.
