I have much pleasure in granting you the leave for which you apply, but I regret that I am unable to accede to your request for permission to draw full salary during your absence from the seat of Government.
I do not think I should be justified in allowing, on the grounds you put forward, such a departure from Established rules, neither do I consider that it wouldbeManuscript image be desirable, except under peculiar circumstances, to appropriate any portion of the Crown Fund towards the payment of the Officer who would temporarily administer the Government during the absence of the Governor.
I have the honor to be
Sir,
Your most obedient
humble Servant
Granville
