GENTLEMEN, —I am directed by the Earl of Carnarvon to acknowledge your letter of this day’s date, requesting His Lordship to ascertain how soon you may expect the arrival of the Delegates from Canada.
I am desired to acquaint you, that His Lordship telegraphed to Lord Monck on this subject after the interview to which you allude in your letter, but that he has not had a specific answer, nor is in possession of any information beyond what he has communicated to the Delegates at various times. On the receipt, however, of your present letter, Lord Carnarvon bas telegraphed, to state the inconvenience to which the Delegates of the Lower Provinces are subject by the delay, and to enquire distinctly when their Canadian colleagues start for England.
Lord Carnarvon will communicate the result of this enquiry as soon as known to himself.
I have, &c. (Signed) T. FREDERICK ELLIOT.
The Honorable C. Tupper,
The Honorable S. L. Tilley.
