My Lord Duke,
I have had the honor to receive Your Grace's despatch No 101ofManuscript image of the 30th November enclosing a report from Admiral Hastings Commanding the Pacific Squadron, of a visit to the Interior of the Colony and the great difficulty which would attend the transport of an armed force to Cariboo.
2. Nobody ismoreManuscript image more aware than I of the difficulty which would attend a naval or military interference with the miners in that distant region; and when pressed by the local magistrate for an armed force in 1867 I proceeded in person to thesceneManuscript image scene of disturbance, and made no application for assistance to Admiral Hastings.
3. I sincerely trust that all is quiet now in the gold districts.
I have the honor to be
My Lord Duke
Your Grace's most obedient
humble Servant
