Government House, Halifax. N. S.
27th August, 1864.
I have been unable, owing to various fortuitous circumstances, to supply sooner a list of the Delegates appointed to represent this Province in the meeting of Delegates which is to assemble at Charlottetown on the 1st proximo for the purpose of considering the expediency of a Union between the Lower Provinces.
I am now enabled to give the following names, with the proviso, however, that some further change may be necessary at the last moment.
The list, as now settled, is the Hon. Charles Tupper, Provincial Secretary, the Hon. William A. Henry, Attorney General, the Hon. R. B. Dickey, M. L. C., Adams G. Archibald, Esq., M. P. P., and John Locke, Esq., M. P. P.
I have, &c.,
(Signed) RICHARD GRAVES MACDONNELL,
The Governor General and Lieut. Governors
Of New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island.
