Trutch to Under-Secretary of State
10 Holles Street
Cavendish Square
10th Augt 1870
I have the honour to enclose a copy of a letter from Mr Stanford of Charing Cross containing an offer for the engraving and printing of the general map of British Columbia compiled in the Lands and Works Office of the Colony, and which I brought home for publication.
Authority has been received by the Crown Agents for an Expenditure of ($500) five hundred dollars on this account, and as the terms proposed by Mr Stanford, vizt to supply (500) five hundred copies for (£100) one hundred pounds, and any further number at (£3) three poundsperManuscript image per hundred retaining the right to print and sell on his own account whatever further copies may be required by the trade—appear to me very reasonable, I beg to advise that I may be authorized to accept this offer, and that the Crown Agents be instructed to receive and forward the (500) five hundred copies of the map to British Columbia, and to pay to Mr Stanford the sum of (£100) one hundred pounds on the due completion of the work he undertakes to perform.
I have the honor to be
Your most obedient Servant
Joseph W. Trutch

Mr Herbert
I should say that Mr Stanfords offer might be closed with—the only thing that occurs to me is that we should have some guarantee that future additions & corrections should be made when required & at the same price of 100 for £3.
I send you a photograph of the map which is 1/3d of the size of the original.
