subject
subject, a rule which I observe, with regret, has not been, in all cases, attended to in my correspondence with Her Majesty's Government.  
I beg however to assure you that in my future communications I will strictly conform to the said regulation.  
I have the honor to be Sir
Your most obedient humble Servant
James Douglas
