No. 27
25 June 1866
Some doubt has arisen respecting the exact meaning of your despatch No. 18 of the 6th of March last. It is not quite clear whether you mean that payments such as fines, fees and forfeitures were from the 1st of January 1866 to be for thefirstManuscript image first time carried to the account of Crown Revenues, or whether such payments are from that date to be applied to defraying the expenditure on Lighthouses. If the former be the case, I would request to be informed whether fines, fees and forfeitures were not previously carried to the credit of Crown Revenues, and if not, for what reason.
I have the honor to be
Your most obedient
humble Servant
Edward Cardwell
