I should not be inclined to suppose that any fresh sanction is necessary. In No 43 of 8 Octr the Governor announced that he would be obliged to draw £1000 and this was approved. He now reports that he has Manuscript imageauthorized the Treasurer to procure £1000. This seems to me only the execution of the intention previously announced.
With reference to our former letter to Mr Hamilton dated 8 Decr transmitting &c, send him a copy of the present despatch, reporting that the Governor has accordingly authorized the Treasurer to draw Bills for £1000 on the Paymaster General.
