No. 130
15 June 1862
With reference to my Despatch of the 29th of May last I have the honor to transmit to you a copy of a Report from Colonel Hawkins detailing the proceedings of the Commission under his Command during the Season 1861.
I have to direct your attention to the concluding paragraph of this Report as Her Majesty's Government deem it most importantthatManuscript image that measures should be at once taken for the preservation of the Boundary Monuments and Cuttings, and I would suggest for your consideration whether some of the Royal Engineers stationed in British Columbia could not be the proper persons to undertake this service.
I have the honor to be
Your obedient Servant
