It is gratifiying to Her Majesty's Government to learn that, with the valuable aid rendered by the Admiral on the Station, the Lighthouses have been constructed in a manner creditable to all concerned in the undertaking.
The Lords of the Committee of Privy Council for Trade have been authorized to accept such bills as you draw on account of this service, in excess of the amount already sanctioned to the extent of one thousand pounds.

You will bear in mind that a moiety of the whole expenditure on account of these Works is to be ultimately contributed from Colonial Funds in conformity with the intimation to you in Sir Edward Lytton's Despatch No. 63 of the 11th of May 1859.
I have the honor to be
Your most obedient
humble servant
