Kernaghan to Carnarvon
Messr Spooner Attwood &
29 July 1858
My Lord
I beg to acknowledge the receipt of your Lordship's letter of 28th.
Having written to Sir Edw Bulwer Lytton on the 26th asking when he could receive a deputation of Members of Parliament & Canadian Merchants as well as referring him to a letter sent through the Irish Attorney General & one from Messrs. Gilmour Rankin & Co, I would fain hope that as I applied first to Lord Stanley & afterwards to Sir Edwd on his accession that I will not be overlooked in the Secretary-ship for the new Colony.
