Merivale to Douglas

In the absence of Mr Labouchere from town, I beg to inform you that the letter from the War Department respecting the despatch of the party exploring the line 49° between the British and American possessionsManuscript image was written from unavoidable circumstances too late for communication to the Colonial office in the ordinary manner. But I am to request on the part of Mr Labouchere that you will regard it as addressed to you with his concurrence.
I remain
Your obedient servant
Herman Merivale
