You ask for instructions as to reporting similar cases for the future, and in reply I have to inform you that as reports of Capital Sentences are transmitted from the majority of the Colonies, I am of opinion that the course hitherto adopted in British Columbia should be adhered to.
I have the honor to be
Sir,
Your most obedient
humble Servant
Granville
