Baynes has reported that upon the departure of the Satellite from Vancouver's Island for England, he had in consequence of a pressing requisition from Governor Governor Douglas Manuscript image Douglas Douglas, ordered the discharge to the Shore of Mr W.

Put by. We shall, doubtless, have a report from the Governor on this. I think that Mr Young is Son-in-Law to Govr Douglas.
