Message in Arabic written on a small scrap of paper (45 x 30 mm) for General Gordon and signed by him, alerting the authorities in Cairo to the situation in Khartoum during the siege. The message was smuggled through the Mahdist lines in the hair of a young man and was eventually delivered to Cairo. The message was given to General Chapman, who served on Kitchener's staff in Cairo, by his nephew, who in turn had obtained it from the Commander-in-Chief's office. In 1915 it was given by General Chapman to his niece, Violet Chapman and on her death it passed to the donor, her son. With the message are two envelopes bearing descriptions of the content in the hands of General Chapman and his niece (SAD 916/15/2,4) and a contemporary translation of the message (SAD 916/15/3). A further translation and transliteration were provided by Peter Clark in 2006 (SAD 916/16/1-2).
