Mr Elliot
I suppose that Messrs Cox were in a hurry for payment of Col: Moody's salary, & cd not wait the receipt of the regular certificate signed by the Magistrate at New Westminster. It's arrival precludes the possibility of any loss. There remains nothing more to be done in the matter; the desph to the Governor shd still go on, I think, as a caution for the future.
