Josiah Charles Hughes 1880 apologetic letter only to O'Reilly
Wellburn notes on the page:
August 1880. Letter from J.C. Huges as Surveyor to Mr. O'Reilly in Victoria. J.C. Huges gave the longitude of Burrard Inlet as 142 degrees W. of Greenwich instead of 123 degrees "which would indicate Burrard Inlet is in the middle of the Pacific Ocean". He asks that the mistake be corrected.
Josias Charles Hughes was a prominent politician in B.C. He represented New Westminster District in the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia from 1871 to 1875. He was Moodyville Sawmill Secretary and active Freemason. In 1876, He was named government agent at New Westminster. He later became Indian Agent for the federal government at Netlakahtla, B.C.; in 1886, but he died that same year.
He was a charter member and first W.M. of Mount Hermon Lodge, No. 491 S.C. and was prominent in the work of the Grand Lodge of British Columbia in its early years.
This is likely the Captain Markham that the letter refers to: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albert_Hastings_Markham
