This answer is the result of a reminder to the Ty that our letter of the 17th July last remained unanswered. I think it was left so purposely the Ty seeing no reason for & declining to reconsider their refusal to pay the long litigated £10704.16.7 in regard to which see 3/3372/68.
The Governor's despatchManuscript image of 2d Feby 1868 (3372) does not actually called [call] for any answer, & I think this matter may therefore be allowed to drop & all the papers be put by?
