19th August 1865
With reference to the Despatch which was addressed to you on the 15th September 1862, I have again to call attention to the circumstance that the sum of £7.8.4 is still due from Mr. Begbie for the charges on hisManuscript image Commission as Judge of the Vice Admiralty Court at British Columbia.
The only cases in which the Lords Commissoners of the Treasury have consented to relieve officers from the payment of such charges are those in which it can be shown that the circumstances of the case are very peculiar as where the appointments are quite unremunerative. Unless therefore you can show that such circumstances exist in the present instance it will be necessarythatManuscript image that you should call upon Mr. Begbie to make the payment without further delay.
I have the honor to be
Your most obedient
humble servant
Edward Cardwell
