With reference to my despatch No. 112 of the 24th ultimo I have the honor to acquaint you that the Colonial Agents General have informed me that in paying the sum of 356.1.11 due for stores supplied for theManuscript image Vancouver Island Light House, the Vancouver Island Account has been overdrawn to the extent of 551.18.9, and I have to desire that you will immediately supply the Agents General with funds sufficient to enable them to replace this overdraught and to meet current demands.
I have the honor to be
Your most obedient
humble servant
