Fellows to Colonial Office
52 Upper Bedford Place
Russell Square W.C.
3 April 1866
I am a late resident of Victoria, Vancouver's Island, and am engaged in writing an account of that Colony.
May I ask whether you could furnish me with a statement of the total annual exports from Vancouver's Island, and British Columbia, expecially those of gold, for the lastfewManuscript image few years. This information would be of great assistance to me, and, could you supply it, I should feel myself really obliged.
A comparative statement of the annual imports would also be of much service, and could it be furnished without much trouble, it would confer on me a great favour.
Believe me
Faithfully yours
Charles Fellows

The returns are long. Better ask the writer to call here & look at them himself.

I have seen Mr Fellows, who called, and given him such information as we could supply. He brought a recommendation from Mr Charles Villins.
Put by.
