No. 38
26 June 1868
I have to acknowledge the receipt of your despatch of the 17th March, No. 18.
There seems to have been a misapprehension on the part of the Admiralty in regard to your having made a complaint against Admiral Hastings of refusingyouManuscript image you Naval assistance, which the correspondence you now forward, and which ought to have accompanied your despatch No. 93, of the 16th August of last year, has removed.
I have the honor to be
Your most obedient
humble Servant
Buckingham & Chandos
