Villars to Under-Secretary of State
London, 11 King William St E.C.
June 19th 1869
Sir,
I am requested by a number of gentlemen who desire to present a Memorial to Earl Granville on the unfortunate condition of the Colony of British Columbia, to ask if his Lordship could favor them with an interview for this purpose.
The Memorial is short, and a few gentlemen only will present it, and will not occupy much of his Lordship's time.
I have the honor to be
Sir
Your obedient Servant
A Villars
Hon. Sec.

I do not know who Mr Villars is nor of what he is Honorary Secretary—nor can Mr Birch enlighten me—or the City Directory.
The writer might be asked on whose behalf he applies for an interview & be requested in the first instance to send a copy of the Memorial for Lord Granville's information previous to his recg the deputation?
