respecting the loss of the Mail Steamer "Labouchere" and I have to convey to youmyManuscript image my approval of the course which you pursued on the occasion.
The Report of the Board of Inquiry states that Her Majesty's Mails were not stowed in the proper part of the ship and were less attended to than private letters and papers. I do not doubt that your attention will have been attracted by this passage, and that in any subsequent contract for the carriage of Mails, you will have inserted some provision which mayappearManuscript image appear best suited to ensure proper attention to their safety.

humble Servant
