Moody to Under-Secretary of State
30h January 1865
I have the honour to acknowledge the receipt of your letter, 24h Inst, enclosing 2 Maps of the neighbourhood of Victoria V.Id.
Thanking you I return them, as I already possess copies of both—I also possess Captain Richards' Nautical Survey.
The Map referred to by me as being in the Office at Victoria is in every way superior to both of these, containing very much more information of the nature required. It is of a later date than these and was carefully surveyed and prepared not by Mr Pemberton but by Mr Pearse the present Acting Surveyor General.
