No. 58
1 November 1864
In answer to your Despatch No. 75 of the 14th of September, I have the honor to acquaint you that I have authorized the Crown Agents to accept and pay your Bills for £4,000 out of the proceeds of the Vancouver Loan. The Treasurer states in hisletterManuscript image letter to you of the 12th of September that he proposes to draw these Bills, because the balance in the treasure is insufficient to defray current expenditure. I am not sure what may be meant by these words, but you will of course take care that the proceeds of your BillsdrawnManuscript image drawn against the Loan are only expended on the objects for which that Loan is raised.
I am informed by the Crown Agents that after paying the present Bills for £4000, the remaining balance of the Loan will be about £3,300 to which amount thereforeanyManuscript image any further Bills on this account must be limited.
I have the honor to be
Your obedient servant
Edward Cardwell
