Confidential
28 July 1868
Sir,
I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your Despatch Secret of the 5th of June requesting that I will not appoint Mr. William A.G. Young to the permanent office of Colonial Secretary of British Columbia without some further communication with you.
In reply I have to inform you that in reliance upon your opinion I shall endeavour to select some other well qualified person for the appointment of Colonial Secretary as I consider it very important that the Governor shouldbeManuscript image be able to repose entire confidence in an Officer holding that position.
I have etc.
