The Executive Council in Committee have had under consideration the Despatch of His Excellency the Governor General of Canada, dated 4th May 1855, and would respectfully request Your Excellency to forward to His Excellency the Governor General the accompanying Correspondence which has consequently taken place, and from which it appears that a large proportion of the Delegates had no knowledge of the alteration referred to until after it was made.
The Council would also respectfully request Your Excellency to ask His Excellency the Governor General to furnish Your Excellency with the names of the Delegates whose signatures are appended to the Resolutions before as well as after the alteration was made.
The Council further request Your Excellency to transmit a copy of this Memorandum to His Excellency the Governor General.
