Salisbury June 24/66

Sir
Yours of the 23rd is received, let the case of Phillips be tried by the civil authorities and all similar cases. You will attend and see that the parties are fairly dealt with. It will be impossible for me to come up this week, as I have as much as I can attend to at present at my office. In regard to Hannible Pomday I am at a loss how to decide. You will however try and force him to help provide for the children by taking a lien in his crop if he is farming, do the best you can under the circumstances. enclosed please find a copy of circular No. 2.

Very respectfully
Your obdt servt
