15th October, 1913
With reference to the case of Lilian Lenton who was brought up at the Richmond (Surrey) Police Court on the 9th instant [dated this month] on a charge of arson and committed for trial, I am directed by the Secretary of State to inform you that he has today issued an Order under the Prisoners (Temporary Discharge for Ill-health) Act, for this prisoners temporary discharge until 20th instant.
I am to add that the Police have been instructed to make every effort to keep her under their supervision, but that, judging from past experience their task will be a difficult one.
I am Sir,
Your obedient Servant,
The Director of Public Prosecutions*
