Letter from H. Darling to William Ross. — 27 October 1818. — 3 pages : 26 x 33 cm.
Item discusses settlers request for additional rations where were viewed as "unreasonable", and he will not speak to Dalhousie on the matter; Sherbrooke has been supplied for 27 months instead of the promised 12; they have had two fine seasons, and if they have not been able to establish themselves by now, he doubts if they ever will; they have received "extraordinary indulgence" from the government; Ross is not to bother Lord Dalhousie on the part of the settlers.
