Mr. Justice Bishop,
I understand that the Habeas Corpus proceedings and our application on behalf of Touchette is now fixed for the 10th December, when a fixture will be made. I do ask please that the further hearing continues on 10th December or an earlier date be fixed to obtain a hearing fixture.
As I shall be away for an extended period abroad, I ask, Sir, that this matter may be concluded at your earliest convenience please.
/s/ Lionel Luckhoo

Dear Sir Lionel,
Re: Habeas Corpus proceedings.
I acknowledge receipt of your letter dated 24th November, 1977 but regret to state that it will not be possible for me to adjust my list to conform with your proposal; there are several matters of similar importance already fixed for hearing.
