The measure which you recommend appears in itself desirable, but adverting to the discussions which have taken place on financial matters in the Colony, and not seeing in the Estimates which have come home any appropriation by the Legislature for such a service, I feel it necessary to refer to you in order to ascertain that the requisite funds are duly placed at your control, before I can take any steps for procuring and sending outtheManuscript image the required Policemen.
I have the honor to be
Sir,
Your most obedient
humble servant
