No. 38
Downing Street
3 July 1860
Considerable inconvenience is occasioned to this Department from your despatches not being written on paper conformable with that in general use. The paper should be of the same sizeManuscript imagesize with the sheet on which the present despatch is written.
I have therefore requested that a moderate supply of Stationery may be supplied to you from Her Majesty's Stationery Office, and you will probably find it desirable to obtain the Stationery required for the Public Departments of your Government from the same source in future, for which purpose it will be necessary that you should transmit to me from time to time requisitions forManuscript imagefor the amount required.
The cost of the Stationery thus obtained will of course be paid for by the Colony.
I have the honor to be
Your most Obedient
humble Servant
