Mr Elliot
This is the "job" on which the late Surveyor Genl Mr Pemberton was sent to England. The expenditure seems to have been sadly thrown away at present. Perhaps "Union" may extricate the Colony from this embarrassment by utilizing the work. We can only acknowledge receipt. Mr Seymour's attention will necessarily be directed to the subject.
