  • Hi Bob
    I’ve checked, and indeed it should be 1870, and ‘by’ which I’ve now changed. Thanks, as always.
    Cheers

  • I think that given the date of the letter is 30 November 1871,
    then they are Meteorological Returns to end of 1870, not 1890.

    Unless the letter is really dated 30 november 1891 – however I suppose you were able to ascertain the correct the letter was written by its sequence in the bound books, too.

    and it should be:

    “… as requested by your letter..”

    and I agree with your “Emigration Commissioners”
