They merely inquire
whether a certain man has been liberated. I quite understand the abjection that might be raised to No. 3-by whose recommendation he was liberated. This involves confidential reports, and in the interest of justice these confidential documents ought not to be given to the public. But as to the question whether a certain man has been in gaol and has been liberated, I think the public has a right to know.
