No. 148
19th November 1870
My Lord,
I have the honor to report that I have appointed Mr James Sullivan recently a Constable at Cariboo to be Clerk to the Magistrate and Recorder of Mining Claims in the room of Mr W.M. Cochrane believed to have been lost in the "City of Boston" on his way to England.

2. The Salary attached to the Office at present is Four hundred pounds (£400.0.0), but is dependent upon an Annual Vote of the Legislature. The amount is small as compared with the great expense of living at Cariboo. I believe Mr Sullivan to be well qualified for the duties he has to perform, which require some local experience, and the appointment would present little attraction to anyone coming from a distant place to fill it.
I have the honor to be,
My Lord,
Your most obedient
humble Servant
A. Musgrave

Mr Herbert
This appt might be sanctioned but I think with an understanding that if Mr Sullivan loses it by Confederation he will not be entitled to compensation.
This is with reference to another despatch on such compensation generally.
