I transmit to you, for your report, a Copy of a letter which has been addressed to me by the Chairman of the HudsonsBayManuscript image Bay Company enclosing Copies of correspondence on the subject of Mr. Lowenberg's title to a lot of land in the Town of Victoria known as "Lot Z."
I take for granted that Mr. Lowenberg's statements of what passed between him and Mr. Young, the Acting Colonial Secretary result from some misunderstanding as after the correspondence which has passed on the subject of this lot of land I can hardly suppose that an Officer of the Colonial GovernmentshouldManuscript image should have told Mr. Lowenberg that his title to lot Z would be disputed by the Government.
I enclose a Copy of the answer which I have caused to be returned to the Chairman of the Hudsons Bay Company.
I have the honor to be
Your most obedient
humble Servant
