I shall of course make my arrangements and frame my proposals to the Legislature in accordance with this decision, but I may perhaps respectfully venture to say that I regret it in the present state of affairs on the Pacific Coast. A little favour on the partofManuscript image of the Mother Country towards this Colony would not I think have been thrown away.
I have the honor to be,
My Lord Duke,
Your Grace's most obedient
humble Servant
