Seymour to Elliot (Assistant Under-Secretary)
17 August 1866
I have had the honor of receiving your letter of the 28th of June calling for my opinion on an Ordinance recently passed by the Legislature of British Columbia entitled; An Ordinance conferring certain privileges on the Williams Creek Bed Rock Flume Company.
The privileges sought to be conferred upon theCompanyManuscript image Company are so very extensive that I would desire, should the Secretary of State permit, to withhold my report until I have returned to the Colony.
I see no objection to the Ordinance remaining in force for the present.
I have the honor to be
Your most obedient humble Servant
Frederick Seymour
