I have the honor to transmit to you the enclosed copy of a letter from the Board of Treasury accompanied by a report from the Commissioners of Audit which exhibits under different heads the excess of the actual over the estimated expenditureofManuscript image of British Columbia for the year 1862.
I feel confident that you will use your best endeavours to bring the accounts of the Colony into a satisfactory condition, and in furtherance of that object I have to request that you will cause to be prepared at the end of each year supplementary Estimates of all Expenditure not covered by the original Estimates for the year, and that you will submit these Estimates as soon as convenient in the following year to the Legislative Council togetherwithManuscript image with an Ordinance to authorize the appropriation of the amount required to cover the excess over the original Estimates.
With reference to the present account received from the Commissioners of Audit I have to request that you will report upon the items, in order that I may be in a position to judge whether I may properly recommend to the Lords Commissoners of the Treasury that they should be allowed.
I have the honor to be
Sir,
Your most obedient
humble servant
