    Only three days more. (Relative clause question.)

    Link the two sentences with a relative pronoun.

    The message said "Only three days more" . The guard showed it to the warden.

    My try: The guard showed the message to the warden which said "Only three days more.

    But I think this is wrong because I guess that there should be "to which".

    Thank you.

    Shouldn't it be " message, which said" instead "which read".

    Thank you.

    No. Either one is OK.
