My Lord Duke,
Having been compelled, when on a Voyage from Bute Inlet to New Westminster in Her Majesty's Gunboat "Forward," to put into Nanaimo in Vancouver Island for Coal I was received with every demonstration of loyalty to Her Majesty, whom I have the honor to represent in a neighbouring Colony, and of good feeling towards myself.
2. I enclose copy of an address which was presented to me on landing and of my reply.
I have the honor to be
My Lord Duke
Your graces most obedient
humble Servant
Frederick Seymour
