In reply to your Despatch No 110 of the 13th March, directing me in the event of a remittance of the sum of £67 which has been paid into the Colonial Treasury by Captain Gosset on account of his passage fromCeylonManuscript image Ceylon to England, not having been made to the Colonial Agents General, to abstain from doing so, as it will be simpler and more convenient on learning from me that the money is still in the Treasury Chest, to procure the issue of a corresponding account from the Treasury in the Mother Country, I have the honor to acquaint your Grace that the SumofManuscript image of Five Hundred pounds, having been remitted from this Colony to the Agents General, they were on the 10th February last requested to make this repayment on account of Captain Gosset, and I therefore presume that the matter is already adjusted. Should it not be so, and, should Your Grace find it convenient to make any alteration in the arrangement I will take care that itisManuscript image is carefully observed as far as we are concerned.
I have the honor to be
My Lord Duke
Your Grace's most obedient
and humble Servant
