Sir,
I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of the Earl of Carnarvon's letter dated the 15th instant, in which his Lordship, by your directions, informed me that a Despatch has been received from Governor Douglas stating that on the 3rd November last, he had proclaimed the Revocation of the License of the 30th May 1838 to the Hudson's Bay Company of exclusive trade with the Indians so far as the same embraced the Territories comprised in British Columbia.
