No. 74
2nd June 1865
I have the honor to forward an Authenticated and two plain Copies of an Ordinance of the recent Session of the Legislature of this Colony, entitled; No. 27. An OrdinanceforManuscript image for regulating the acquisition of Land in British Columbia. I add the Report of the Attorney General.
2. Though a measure of this importance, drawn up within less than a year of my assumption of the Government, must to a very great extent be considered tentative, I allow myself to hope that the present Land Ordinance is a great improvement upon its predecessor.
