I am to state for the information of the Secretary of State, that as it would appear to My Lords clear fromtheManuscript image the correspondence which took place in 1860 that the detachment which was stationed at St Juan was to be granted extra pay equal to the regular pay of the Force, My Lords are of the opinion that the men who are serving at that station are entitled to receive additional pay granted by the Order in Council of August 1867, from the date at which such additional pay was granted under the provisions of the Order in Council.
I am, Sir,
Your obedient Servant
