6th August 1870
My Lord,
I have the honor to forward for Your Lordship's information some Copies of a Hand Book of British Columbia, and Vancouver Island, of which Mr Graham Alston, the Registrar General, is the Author.
2. I should be glad ifYourManuscript image Your Lordship would cause this little publication to be brought to the Notice of the Colonial Land and Emigration Commissioners. Its circulation may do some good in attracting Emigrants to a Colony which but for its distance from England, which is now practically much lessened by the Pacific Railway, offers many advantages to settlers.
3. I may add that Mr Alston has no personalinterestManuscript image interest in the publication beyond the desire to bring the Colony into notice.
I have the honor to be,
My Lord,
Your most obedient
humble Servant
