No. 55

I have received from Governor Kennedy a numerously signed Petition, representing that the completion of the Bute Inlet Route is most desirable in the interest of the Colonies of British Columbia and Vancouver Island.
As the Governor states that he has furnished youwithManuscript image with a copy of this Petition, I have the honor to inform you that I await your report on the subject.
I have the honor to be
Your most obedient
humble servant
