Corporal Whitmore of the Hussars posting continues.

Queenborough, BC
21st May 1859.


As you informed me of your intention of detaching Corporal Whitmore of the 15th Hussars for Service in the Post Office here, I have the honor to request that he may be directed to assume the duties of Assistant Post Master, and to take up his residence permanently at this place early as possible.

I have the honor to be,
Spaulding, JP

Note: Whitmore will now be posted off camp and be living in New Westminster.
