No. 90
9 September 1869
With reference to my Despatch No. 79 of the 5th August, I transmit to you a copy of a letter from the Bishop of British Columbia requesting that the Crown Agents may be authorized to issue to him £400 on account of the £700 which His Lordship states has been voted by the GovernmentofManuscript image of British Columbia towards female Emigration to the Colony.
There is sufficient evidence in the Report enclosed by the Bishop to warrant me in allowing the Crown Agents to comply with his request, and at the same time to give effect to the wishes of your Government as expressed in the Acting Colonial Secretary's letter of the 21st June.
I have accordingly issued the necessary instructions, but I have to observe that both delay and correspondence would have been savedif theManuscript image if the matter had been properly reported to this Department.
I have the honor to be
Your most obedient
humble Servant
Frederic Rogers
