These documents have been communicated to Lord Carnarvon by, I think, the Secy of the R.M.S. Packet Co, as an earnest of their desire to assist, by every possible means, in the forwarding of the R.E. party to B. Columbia. I {imagine} Lord Carnarvon wd allow his P. Secty to thank the Secretary for the obliging assistance rendered to us by the Co?
