This letter will be presented to you by Dr. David Walker who is proceeding to B. Columbia.
Dr. Walker, who has been recommended to me by Sir J. Emerson Tennent, was Surgeon and Naturalist on board the Fox during Sir E.

I do not doubt that you will be happy to afford him any attention or assistance in your power.
I have etc.
