SIR,-We have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your letters of the 12th and 17th instant, and thank Lord Carnarvon for the prompt manner in which His Lordship acceded to our request relating to the Communication with His Excellency the Governor General, and the desire exhibited to aid us in the circumstances in which we are placed by the delay on the part of the Delegates from Canada.
Having had an opportunity of discussing the subject, the Delegates from Nova Scotia and New Brunswick will be glad to be honored with an interview at Lord Carnarvon’s convenience.
We have, &c. (Signed) CHARLES TUPPER,
