Sepr 18/67
My dear Sir Frederic Rogers
I have received a letter from Mr Henry Fowler lately a clerk in the Colonial Secys Office Van Couver Island, informing me that Governor Seymour had written to the Secretary of State in His behalf, & requesting me to say anything I can in His favor.
Mr Fowler is an active and energetic young man of a noble minded character, fairly educated, and a very accurate painstaking officer.
He is well fitted to fill a clerkManuscript imageship anywhere, with great credit, & will I feel sure justify anything which can be done for him. The reduction of the staff in British Columbia, has left him without employment.
If You will kindly have my humble testimony recorded in his favor, you will confer an additional obligation upon
Your very faithful
Servant
A.E. Kennedy
