H. M's Consuls, of which a Copy is herewith inclosed, and which
contain full Instructions for the guidance of your Official con-
duct on all ordinary occasions.
I also inclose Copies of Circular Dispatches dated 30th Septr.

tion to the directions contained in those Dispatches, enjoining a

You will be punctual in forwarding to this Dept. the Returns

avail yourself of every favourable opportunity for collecting and
transmitting to me any further useful or interesting Information,
relating to Commerce, Navigation and Agriculture, and to any
other Branch of Statisticts.
Your Salary has been fixed at 1,200 a year, and will commence
ten days before the day of your departure from England; and
you are to consider yourself restricted from engaging in Mercan-
ABERDEEN TO ELLIOT1
Draft. F. 0. May 27. 1842
Texas. No. 2.
I think it right to call your attention to that Clause in your
commission which empowers you to appoint Vice Consuls at those
Ports and Places where the Interests of H. M's Service may
appear to require them, and to explain to you that you are not
to consider yourself authorized by that clause to appoint Vice
Consuls without the previous Sanction of this Department, and I
have to refer you upon this Subject to the 27th Paragraph of the
1F. O., Texas, Vol. 3.
