humble Servant,

Mr Elliot
Though we are unacquainted with the circs which gave rise to this enquiry, and which originated apparently with the Admiral on the N. Pacific Station, it will not be amiss, I think, to take the precaution of mentioning to the Govr of V.C.Id what continues to be the view of H.M. Govt on this subject.

Sir F. Rogers
Write to that effect?Manuscript image I take for granted that the Govr of Vancouver has received all the general Circulars on neutrality, but this can be verified before writing to him as now proposed.

I pass this for Sige,
as I understand from Mr Jadis that the sending out of the former Circulars has been verified.
