From William Buckland 15 July 
My dear L.,1
I have pleasure in forwarding to Mr. Chadwick2 your recommendation of Mr. E. Cresy,3 but as far as I know there will be occasion for no further services of engineers in the proposed map of the streets & houses of London than those of the Privates & Corporals of the Ordnance Survey Department4 at a cost of as many shillings a day to the public as would be pounds if the work were done by educated engineers. I believe the existing staff is fully adequate to all the work under contemplation & that not one additional officer will be required. Nevertheless I will forward your letter as your friend seems so valuable a person in case of any occasion for his services.5
Believe me, | Very truly yours, | W. Buckland.
Will forward recommendation of Edward Cresy to Edwin Chadwick, but thinks there will be no further need of engineers.
