No. 49
26th October 1864
I have the honor to transmit to you the enclosed copy of a proposal from the Bishop of British Columbia for the division of the Diocese of British Columbia into two, and the endowment of a new Bishoprick. I have received this proposal from the Archbishop of Canterbury who has intimated to me his approval of it.
I enclose a copy of the answerManuscript image which I have returned to His Grace and I have to request that you will take an early opportunity of acquainting me with your views on the subject.
I have the honor to be
Your most obedient
humble servant
