No. 158
13 Dec 1867
I have the honor to acknowledge the recipt of Your Grace's very important despatch No 67 of the 1 October relative to the selection of a capital for the United Colony. I shall report very fully by the next mail on the subject. I propose allowing the inhabitants of both the rival citiesManuscript image to eat their Christmas dinner in peace without letting them even know that I have heard from Your Grace on the subject.
I have the honor to be,
My Lord Duke,
Your Grace's most obedient
humble Servant
