No. 61
Downing Street
1st September 1865
Sir,
I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your Despatch No. 80 of the 7th of June last.
I derived much satisfaction from the perusal of your account of the celebration in British Columbia of the Anniversary of the Queen's Birthday; and I am especially pleased to learn that you found thattheManuscript image the Indians collected together on the occasion had made so much progress in civilized habits since the time when you last met them.
I have the honor to be
Sir,
Your most obedient
humble servant
Edward Cardwell
