Upon finding that Capt Tingey had not, as was his duty, reported to the Dept the timber and the [. . . .] tr[. . . .] used in the building and equipping of the gun Boats of this place I without delay called upon him by an Official letter for the requisite information and I have this moment with a view to hasten the report to me sent to him your note. Capt Tingey having been under Orders to keep an exact account of the timber & other materials furnished these gun boats the statement will no doubt be made as soon as it can be copied Respecty

Rt Smith
