NotesNews: July 10. Mohammed Ali Jinnah, the
Moslem leader, is to be Governor General of Pakistan when Inida i partitioned into the two
new states. This is an historic appointment, for Mr Jinnah will be the first coloured man
to be governor-general of a British dominion. The news came as a complete surprise to the
people of India when it was announced over All-Inida radio tonight. Mr Jinnah was told the
news of the announcement by his sister, and while refusing to comment received the
congratulations of his many friends at his home in New Delhi. At the same time the leaders
of Congress have done Lord Louis Mountatten a great honour by choosing him to be
governor-general of ther new state, which will be called India, and not Hindustan, as was
first suggested. ... [Chronicle of the 20th century]
