Offices of the Crown Agents for the Colonies
Spring Gardens, London, S.W.

Sir,
With reference to Mr Julyan's letter of the 8th instant, I have the honor to report, for the information of Earl Granville, that the Crown Agents have now received a remittance from the Government of British Columbia of £3000, in Admiralty Bills at 3 days sight.
The amount still required by the Crown Agents to meet the liabilities in this Country of the GovernmentofManuscript image of that Colony is therefore £6265.
I have the honor to be,
Sir,
Your most obedient servant,
W.C. Sargeaunt

I saw Mr Lowe on the subject of the British Columbia Loans this morning & he was of opinion that as the £3,000 had been received the C.O. should withdraw their letter to Treasury.

Either withdraw, or with a letter to say that this 3000£ has come in & that their Lps need not trouble themselves to consider our letter.
As Mr Lowe suggests withdraw perhaps the best way will be that I shd write to Mr Hamilton asking for the letter back.
Then we will press the Govt of B.C. as to Sinking Fund.

Yes.

Sir F. Rogers has written to Mr Hamilton.

I have initialed the drafts, but I should have thought it would be right to allude in both of them, to the fact that the Crown Agents will be overdrawn 100£ on the Interest account.

This £3000 & the £1110 the Agents have in hand will not quite cover what is due for interest of £4200.
