This despatch ackges the receipt of the mail sent from this Office on the 15th of January.
The Govr has not however yet ackged the mail from this Office of 4 Jan.
As however by this despatch he ackges the receipt of the duplicates of that mail—it seems hardly necessary to call his attention to the omission.
There is one other Arrear resting with the Govr, but as he has promised, by this mail, to attend to it the omission of it from the schedule is of no consequence.
