No. 33
8 July 1863
I have the honor to acknowledge receipt of your despatch No. 27 of the 13th of May last, enclosing, together with other proclamations, the following vizt. No. 3, 1863 The Road Tolls Extension Act issued the 23rd of February 1863. No. 4 1863 The Gold Fields Act issued the 25th of March 1863 and a ProclamationentitledManuscript image entitled "Rates and Regulations issued in conformity with the Gold Fields Act 1859" issued the 24th of February 1863.
I have discovered no ground of objection to the three Proclamations above described, but I think it best to defer advising Her Majesty formally to sanction them until it shall appear that they work in a manner acceptable to the settlers.
I have the honor to be
Your most obedient
humble servant
