Sir F. Rogers
You will see ante that Mr Dealtry has raised a question whether Sir JohnManuscript image Young's Confidential despatch 5524 & the answer to it & the despatch to the Gov: of B Columbia (Both 2 June) should be printed.
I should say that Extracts as I have marked them in pencil might be given, but Departmentally it would be convenient to have the whole in print first.
B. Columbia Despatches.
There may be a doubt about the whole of 10906 Separate of 24 Sept. 1867—but our despatch ackng the receipt of it (No 87 of 19 Nov. 67) & also acknowledging a Numbered one which has to be given.
539—B. Columbia. The only question is whether to give the whole or only extracts, i.e. only what refers toManuscript image Confederation—the other questions being Representative Institutions—Retrenchment & Reciprocal Commerical Treaty with the U. States.
In the case of extracts I think it is best—unless entailing much unnecessary printing—that they should be made from a printed copy.
