Washington, 19th April, 1864.
MY LORD,—With reference to my Despatch No. 221 of the 28th ultimo, and to my previous Despatches respecting the exaction of Bonds on shipments from New York to British Colonies, I have the honor to transmit to Your Lordship copies of correspondence on that subject with Mr. Seward, and with the Lieutenant Governors of New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island.
Your Lordship will see that, without prejudice to the discussion of the general question, I have endeavoured to persuade the United States authorities to refrain from exacting Bonds on shipments to those two Provinces.
I have, &c. (Signed) LYONS.
