Julyan to Elliot (Assistant Under-Secretary)
29 November 1864
I have the honor to request that the Crown Agents for the Colonies may be furnished with Mr Secretary Cardwell's authority for accepting the Bills referred to in the enclosed copy of a letter received from the Colonial Secretary of British Columbia.
The improved state of the Money Market will enable the Crown Agents to borrow £20,000 on the credit of the Colony to meet these Bills at maturity, even ifitManuscript image it should not before that time have sufficiently recovered to justify them attempting to raise the money by the negotiation of the loan authorized by the British Columbia Loan Act of 1864.
I have the honor to be,
Your most obedient servant,
Penrose G. Julyan
