No. 7, Miscellaneous
24th January 1865
Sir,
I have the honor to request that the Crown Agents for the Colonies may be instructed to procure and send out to this Colony the articles mentioned in the accompanying Requisition.
Suitable articles of clothing are not procurable here readymade and the high price of labour would render them too costly if made here.
I have the honor to be,
Sir,
Your most obedient Servant
A.E. Kennedy
Governor
