Maclachlan to Colonial Office
Revenue Police Office
6th March 1858
I have great pleasure in expressing my opinion of the manner in which Mr Peter O'Reilly discharged his duties as an officer in the Revenue Police for a period of seven years and nine months.
He always maintained an exemplary character as an Officer and a Gentleman, and by attention to his various duties gave general satisfaction.
A. Maclachlan, M. Gen
Chief Inspector
