Transcript: endeavoured to expect its the matter as much as possible, & I rejoice that what I have said, appears to have prevented an advance by His Excellency from the Public Funds, pending the determination of this important case. Your Honor and His Excellency the Governor have long since been in possession of my opinion given at your Honor's express solicitation contained in your note to me of the 25th of May 1842. I have the Honor to be Sir Your very Obedient Servant John Walpole Willis Resident Judge.
