Downing-street, 14 October 1862.

My Lord,

I HAVE had the honour to receive your Lordship’s Despatch, No. 136, of the 12th of September, accompanied by a Minute of your Executive Council, containing a Memorandum, by which it appears that the several gentlemen from Canada, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick, who consulted on the subject, had arrived at a conclusion in favour of assuming, with the aid of an Imperial guarantee of interest, the liability for the expenditure necessary to construct the Intercolonial Railway.

I have received this intelligence with much satisfaction.

I have, &c.
(signed) Newcastle.
