Victoria
28th July 1868
My Lord Duke,
I have called upon the Acting Colonial Secretary for a Report respecting the Postal arrangements which exist on the part of British Columbia, withtheManuscript image the United Kingdom, the Dominion of Canada and the United States. Of that Minute I have the honor to enclose a copy.
2. It seems to me that the suggestions offered by Mr Young in the latter part of his paper are worthy of consideration.
I have the honor to be,
My Lord Duke,
Your Grace's most obedient,
humble Servant.
