Department of the Justice of the Peace
10 May, 1859
I have the honor to request that you will be pleased to
inform me whether it is your intention that Corporal Henry
Whitmore of the 15th Hussars, who has been appointed by His Honor
the Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia to the office of
Assistant Post Master at Queenborough, shall continue to be borne
on your Roll for Rations, or whether I am to enter his name on
that of this Department. May I venture to suggest that the latter
would be found to be the simplest mode of proceeding and might
save confusion at a future period.
If it is decided that Corporal Whitmore is to be rationed by
my Department, I have to request that you will be pleased to
furnish me with a Scale, as issued to the Royal Engineers.
I have the honor to be,
Your Most obedient Servant,
Note: Forwarded for the decision of the Colonel Commanding
HRLuard, Captain RE
