No. 23
21 September 1870
I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your Despatch No. 111 of the 12th August, and to convey to you Her Majesty's Gracious Confirmation and allowance of Ordinance No. 13 of 1870 passed by the Legislative Council of BritishColumbiaManuscript image Columbia and entitled "An Ordinance to amend the Road Ordinance 1869."
With reference to the 9th clause I have to observe that though it is quite just that the Government should have power to take Gravel, stone, timber &c if required for Public Works, it appears unfair that compensation should not be given for whatever is thus taken equivalent to the loss really imposed on the land owner.
I have the honor to be
Your most Obedient humble Servant
