No. 11
11th May 1854 My Lord Duke,
In referring to my Despatch No 5 of the 27th February last, I observe with regret, an error in the same, which I now beg leave to correct; it being intended as a reply to your Grace's Despatch No 12 of the 22nd October 1853, instead as therein set forth to your Grace's Despatch No 10, of the 15th October, which is noticed in my Despatch No 6 of the 28th February 1853.
I have the honor to be
Your Grace's most obedient humble Servant
James Douglas
Vancouver's Island

[His Grace The Right Honble The Duke of Newcastle
Her Majesty's principal Secretary of State
