By direction of the Chief Secretary, I have the honor to request that Officers of your Department, who have the control of Government Buildings over which insurances have been effected, will, in the event of a fire occurring report it without delay to Mr. Joseph Aarons, the Government Insurance Broker, whose address appears in the margin,1 so that he may be in a position to take such steps at once as the occasion requires.

I have the honor to be


Your most obedient servant
