SIR,—I have the honor to acknowledge your Note of yesterday’s date, enquiring by direction of His Excellency the Lieutenant Governor, whether my “consent was requested “to any change in the wording of the Resolutions agreed to by the Conference held at “Quebec in October last, subsequently to their signature.”
In reply, I beg to state for the information of His Excellency, that no such consent was asked of me, nor have I directly or indirectly received any communication upon such a subject; and if I may be permitted to add the expression of my personal belief, I do not believe that in the wording of the original Resolution; as signed by myself and others of the Delegates, any alteration whatever has been made.
I have, &c. (Signed) J. H. GRAY.
