I have the honor to acknowledge your Despatch, No. 57, of the 3rd of August, announcing the selection which you had made of gentlemen to represent Prince Edward Island in the Conference on the question of a Union of the Maritime Provinces.
I have also received your Despatch, No. 56, of the 3rd of August, communicating a correspondence between you and Lord Monk, on a suggestion, that Delegates, from Canada should be present at the time of these Conferences. I think that the view which you have taken of the subject, in your letters to Lord Monk, is quite correct and proper.
I have the honor to be,
&c., &c., &c.,
(Signed) EDWARD CARDWELL.
Lieut. Governor Dundas,
