No. 32
Downing Street,
15 March 1859
Sir,
I have received your despatch of the 6th January, No 65, forwarding, with copies of two letters from Judge Begbie, the copy of an Order of Court regulating the admission of Barristers and AttorniestoManuscript image to the Court of British Columbia.
I regret that there should be no duly qualified English Lawyers to practice in the Court, and that it has been, therefore, necessary to admit foreign Counsel. But as the arrangement which you report is plainly unavoidable and only temporary I offer no objection to it.
I have the honor to be
Sir,
Your most obedient
humble servant
E B Lytton
