27th March 1868
In answer to your Despatch No. 163 of the 19th of December last, I have to request that you will have the goodness to return to this department the Public Seal of the late colony of Vancouver Island, in order that it be defaced in the usual and prescribed form by Her Majesty in Council.

It will be desirable that the Seal should be returned by hand through some Officer of Her Majesty's Navy or through some other secure channel otherwise it might be lost and wrongfully used.
I have the honor to be
Your most obedient
humble Servant
Buckingham & Chandos
