12th October 1870

2. Mr Williams is only a Compositor in the Government Printing Office, and although paid a fixed Salary by the Government I did not regard him as having the rank of a "Colonial Officer" within the meaning of the Regulations. For this reason I did not think it necessary to report the Leave granted to him; although as he was proceeding to England he was allowed to draw his Half Salary from the Crown Agents as a personalaccommodationManuscript image accommodation.
3. I now enclose the usual Certificates.
I have the honor to be,
My Lord,
Your most obedient
humble Servant
