No. 20
16th November 1866
Sir,
I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your Despatch No. 69 of the 3rd September, on the subject of the refusal of the Legislative Assembly to pass Supplementary Votes to cover the expenditure of last year.
I would observe that under ordinary circumstances it is the duty of the Executive GovernmentManuscript image to confine the different Departments to the expenditure of the Votes already granted, but looking to the change which by this time has probably taken place in consequence of the Union of Vancouver Island with British Columbia, I do not think it necessary or for the public interest to pursue the question further.
I have the honor to be
Sir,
Your most obedient servant
Carnarvon
