Ring to Cardwell
Septr 9th 1864
Dr Sir
The Governor has forwarded to you the originals of the enclosed with his own despatch.
As in the administration of affairs in this colony circumstances similar to those therein mentioned can hardly occur during my life the best part of which is long spent already and the great injustice, unintentionally done me, and which is felt by the whole Profession here and the Public if not rectified by you must be lasting, I feel the more sure that you will give your best attention to those circumstances.
I am Dear Sir
faithfully yours
D. Babington Ring
