This account of VanC. Isld seems to me exceedingly comprehensive, & well drawn up; And it wd be well if we Cd give it greater circulation than by merely sending a copy to the Land Board. I believe that a prize will also be given for an essay on B.C.

Send a copy, however, to Land Board, who may perhaps be able to use some of the Contents in their Coln Circular.
