No. 23
Downing Street
16th November 1866
Sir,
I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your Despatch No. 68 of the 3rd September, enclosing a copy of a Bill "to amend the Law of (Indian) Evidence" which had been thrown out by the Legislative Assembly.
While regretting the course adopted by that Body on the occasion of your introducingManuscript image this Bill, I cannot but express a hope that questions of this nature will be dealt with in a more effectual manner when the Union of Vancouver Island with British Columbia shall have taken effect.
I have the honor to be
Sir
Your most obedient Servant
Carnarvon
Governor Kennedy, C.B.
