You will observe that it is proposed to charge the Colony half the original value of the Accoutrements at the rates specified, and that it is the desire of the Secretary of State for War to be furnished with a complete List of the Military Stores in the possession of the Colonial Authorities being the property of the Imperial Government.
I have etc
