No. 92
5th August 1868
My Lord Duke,
I have had the honor to receive Your Grace's despatch No. 34, of the 28th June, transmitting Copy of a letter from the Treasury, with one from the Admiralty, in reference to expenses incurred inconnectionManuscript image connection with the Military Occupation of the Island of San Juan.
2. I observe that the balance due the Imperial Government on the 30th September 1867 was increased from £406.9.3 to £547.9.9, owing to the undermentioned payments not being chargeable to Naval Funds:
Paid for Collecting Pine Seeds £118.08.08.
Freight on War Office Stores ‹£ 22.11.10.

3. I presume it is not necessary to make any note of this in future accounts, it being a matter of distribution of expenditure amongst the Departments particularly chargeable, and that the accounts have been duly recovered, the sum of £118.8.8 from the Department of Woods and Forests and that of £22.11.10 from the War Office.
I have the honor to be,
My Lord Duke,
Your Grace's most obedient,
humble Servant.
