You will make report by every mail of the condition and progress of the business under your charge and will be careful at the expiration of each quarter to render those official returns, which will show the state of all pecuniary arrangements of the Department in California, and the indebtedness and credits of each party, whether Postmaster, Contractor or others, and keep the Post Master General advised from time to time of the state and progress of settlements in the country, and what routes should be created by law to furnish them with the mail.

The postage for California is 40 cents on each single letter which is a letter not exceeding half an ounce in weight, between any place in California and any place on the Atlantic coast, and 12-½ cents between any place on the Pacific.    Double, treble letters and so on, will be charged with double, treble and the like increase of rates.

I am respectfully,

Yours obt. Servt.

C. Johnson

Post Master General.

Wm. V. Voorhies Esq.
