The Measures which you adopted for freeing the Settlement from the Northern Indians appear to have been judicious, and to haveManuscript image answered the object you had in view. I have read with satisfaction the speech with which you opened the Session of the Legislature on the 12th August. With respect to the difficulty you experienced in constituting a Committee to inquire into the validity of the disputed Elections, it is probable that that difficulty will have been removed before the receipt of this despatch.
I shall therefore awaityoungManuscript image your further report upon the subject.
I have the honor to be Sir,
Your most obedient Humble Servant
H. Labouchere
