All questions regarding this land have been set at rest by the Agreement concluded with the Company a copy of which was communicated to you in my despatch No. 84 of the 24th of January last. That agreement will have put it in the power of the Governor to dispose of all land in the Town of Victoria not previously disposed of to others, with the exceptionofManuscript image of some small reservations for the Company, and will therefore have met the object proposed in your present despatch.
I have the honor to be
Your obedient Servant
