Prince Edward Island
1st October, 1864.
I learn from the Lieut. Governor of Nova Scotia that it is in contemplation to resume at Quebec the discussion of the question of an Intercolonial Union, which is now engaging the attention of British North America.
Lord Monck has intimated his intention of addressing me on this subject, but as I learn that it is desired that the intended meeting shall be held early in October, I think it is expedient to inform you at once, that I entertain no objection to the proposed mission of some of the members of your Government, if the meeting at Quebec should be finally resolved upon.
I have, &c. &c.
(Signed) EDWARD CARDWELL.
Lieut. Governor Dundas.
