CAPE COLONY: LORD GODERICH TO LIEUT.- GOVERNOR BOURKE, 14 June 18271

In the meantime I authorize you by virtue of the authority which is vested in you by His Majesty's Instructions to appoint, subject to His Majesty's confirmation, two Councillors in the room of the Colonial Secretary and Auditor,2 whom you will select from the most respectable and the most intelligent of those colonists who usually reside in Cape Town, whether they be of Dutch origin or British born subjects.The Council of Government will then consist of the following persons, viz:
The Chief Justice of the colony for the time being,
The Officer next in command to the Commander of the forces for the time being,
The Treasurer and Accountant General of the colony for the time being,
Lieutenant Colonel Bell,
Two colonists.
