No. 6, Miscellaneous
23rd January 1865
I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your Despatch No 58 dated 1st November 1864 in which with reference to the Bills drawn upon the Crown Agents for £4000 you call my attention to the statement of the Treasurer that he proposed to draw those Bills because the balance in the Treasury was insufficient to defray currentexpenditureManuscript image expenditure.
The Treasurer informs me that the Bills in question were drawn for the purpose of the reimbursing the Treasury for expenditure made under the provisions of the "Vancouver Island Road and Harbour Loan Act."
Care will be taken that Bills drawn shall not exceed the total amount of the Loan.
I have the honor to be,
Your most obedient Servant
A.E. Kennedy
