Baxter to Under-Secretary of State
20th April 1869
Sir,
Having laid before my Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty your letter of the 19th December, 1868, transmitting copy of a despatch from the Governor of British Columbia, with a memorandum from the Acting Colonial Secretary suggesting that cash might be obtained by the Naval Accountant at Vancouvers Island from the Colonial authorities at British Columbia; I am commanded by their Lordships to express their regret that they are not able to comply with this suggestion, as by the present arrangements notonlyManuscript image only is the Naval Service promptly supplied with the amounts required, but there is an annual gain to this Department by Exchange, which my Lords see no good reason for sacrificing.
I am,
Sir,
Your obedient Servant
W.E. Baxter
