Sir Julian Pauncefote to Mr. Olney.

Sir: With reference to my note of the 16th instant in relation to the case of James Bain, purser of the British steamship Engineer, I have the honor to state that a more detailed account of the injuries which he sustained on the occasion of the attack made on his ship at New Orleans will be found in the certificate of Dr. F. F. Paul, an eminent Liverpool surgeon, under whose care Mr. Bain was placed at the Liverpool Royal Infirmary.

This certificate was forwarded to you unofficially, together with other documents relating to the case, by Viscount Gough on September 26 last.

I have, etc.,

Julian Pauncefote.
