PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND,
28th July, 1864.
I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your Despatch, dated 25th July, informing me that the Government of New Brunswick is prepared to nominate Delegates to attend the Conference on the subject of the Union of the Maritime Provinces, and also that the Government is willing to accede to my suggestion that the Conference should be held in Charlottetown on September 1st.
I have to acknowledge the promptitude with the honor to transmit for your Excellency’s which the Government of New Brunswick has acceded to this proposal, and assure them that my Ministers will heartily welcome to Charlottetown, the gentlemen who may represent New Brunswick at the forthcoming Conference.
I enclose for your information, copy of a correspondence with the Governor General of Canada on the subject of a proposal of the Canadian Government to send a Delegation to attend the Conference.
I have the honor to be,
(Signed) GEORGE DUNDAS,
