No. 12
21 February 1870
I have to call your attention to my predecessor's despatch to the late Mr. Seymour No. 63 of the 21st August 1868 and to previous correspondence respecting a claim against the Government of British Columbia for £675.2.4 on account of Stores supplied by the War Department fortheManuscript image the service of the Colony.
You will observe that the settlement of that claim was allowed to remain in abeyance owing to the financial difficulties in which the Colony was then involved. I trust however that in consequence of the improved state of its finances you will have no difficulty in remitting to the Crown Agents the amount in question for payment to the War Department.
I have the honor to be
Your most obedient
humble Servant
