No. 11
27th February 1865
I have the honor to transmit to you a Copy of a letter from the Board of Admiralty enclosing Copies of a Correspondence between Rear Admiral Denman and Colonel Foster, a resident in Vancouver Island, on the subject of a Pier which Colonel Foster has thrown out from his property in Esquimalt Harbor.

I also enclose a Copy of a Report of the Hydrographer to the Admiralty accompanied by a Chart of Constance Cove showing the position of the Pier.
With reference to the wish intimated by their Lordships, I have to request that you will settle the matter in concert with the Admiral in such manner as, without putting Colonel Foster to any unnecessary inconvenience, shall be consistent with the public interests, and with the possible future requirements of the Navy.
I have the honor to be
Your most obedient humble servant
Edward Cardwell
