Referring to my Despatch of the 23rd September, and to your answer of 3rd October, I have the honor to inform you that the gentlemen named by you to represent Nova Scotia, began their consultations with the Delegates from the other Provinces, and the Ministers of Canada, on the 10th October.
The Members of the Conference chose Sir E. P. Taché, Prime Minister of Canada as their Chairman, and I have now the honor to transmit to you, a copy of the Resolutions adopted by the Conference, authenticated by the signature of that gentleman.
I have also transmitted a similar copy to Her Majesty’s Secretary of State for the Colonies, and to the Lieut. Governor of New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island, and the Governor of Newfoundland.
I have, &c.,
Lieut.-Governor Sir RICHARD GRAVES MACDONNELL, C. B.
