No. 3
14 February 1863
My Lord Duke,
In connection with my Despatch of this date No 4 and referring to your Despatch No 106 of the 19 June 1862, I have the honor to transmit herewith the report I have received from Mr G.H. CarytheManuscript image the Attorney General of this Colony, in reply to the charges brought against him by Mr Langford.
2. The evidence Mr Cary produces appears so satisfactorily to clear him from Mr Langford's imputations, and so forcibly to expose the character of Mr Langford that it does not seem to me necessary to trouble Your Grace with further remark.
I have the honor to be
My Lord Duke,
Your Graces most obedient
and humble Servant
James Douglas

So far as I can judge the Attorney Genl satisfactorily disposes of Mr Langford's charges.

This despatch (as well as 3700 & 3701) relates so purely to matters of a legal character, that I am afraid I can offer no useful assistance and can only forward the three despatches to you for your examination.
