8th December, 1864.
I have the honor to transmit to you, for your information, the enclosed copy of a Despatch which I have addressed to the Governor of Canada, upon the resolutions adopted by the Representatives of the several Provinces, who assembled at Quebec to consider the subject of Federation.
This Despatch so fully communicates the views of Her Majesty’s Government on this important subject, that I need do no more than request you to take the necessary steps for giving effect to them in the Province under your Government.
I have the honor to be,
Your most obedient,
&c., &c., &c.
