Since the fresh Land Ordinance, which you were desired to prepare by my despatch No. 60 of the 17th October, will include regulations for the lease or sale of Mineral Lands, the decision on Mr. Brown's application must be suspended until I shall have had an opportunity of considering the proposed Ordinance.

Your most obedient
humble servant
