My Lord,
I have had the honor to receive Your Lordship's despatch Vancouver Island, No. 1 of 1st of January 1867, respecting the intended payment to his Mother of the property leftbyManuscript image by the late John Curry. Your Lordship enquires if a letter on the subject from Mr Pease M.P. who has interested himself in it has been received by Mr Young, and if so, what has been done in the matter?
2. On application to Mr Young I learn that he did receive Mr Pease's letter and that he replied on the 22nd of December last stating that the Colonial Agents had been authorized to pay to Mrs Curry the sum of sixty six poundsfourteenManuscript image fourteen shillings (£66.14), less charges of remittance &c upon their being satisfied that she was the Mother of the deceased Intestate, John Curry.
