No. 339.
Sir L. S. Sackville West to Mr. Bayard.

Sir: With reference to my note of the 25th ultimo and to your reply of the 7th instant, I have the honor to inform you that Her Majesty’s Government intimate that the intending emigrants are not paupers, but crofters, whose passages are only partly paid from public funds, and that Her Majesty’s Government would be glad to know whether this affects in any way the tenor of your above-mentioned note.

I have, etc.,

L. S. Sackville West.
