These letters cover the final period of Bell's tenure as Governor of Northern Nigeria and his appointment as Governor of the Leeward Islands. They discuss Bell's response to what he regarded as an unjust demotion by the Colonial Secretary, Lewis Harcourt, over the Nigerian mission question. Bell also describes his official duties, including visits to the islands within his jurisdiction, his health and private interests (58 sheets).
