Lays out conditions for emigrants who will be required to report himself or herself at some Port of Embarkation in England. Struggling with a depressed economy and in serious debt, and still not part of the Canadian Confederation, BC hoped to encourage massive numbers of English immigrants to swell the ranks of landowners and taxpayers. This was the first such BC Colonial scheme; others followed, none as effective as the Vietnam War. Rare, unrecorded except as a possible 1871 imprint, by Kaye Lamb in 1939 BCHQ.
