My Lord,

I HAVE the honour to acknowledge the receipt of your Lordship’s Despatch, No. 24,* of the 26th ultimo, enclosing a copy of a Despatch which you had addressed to the Lieutenant Governor of New Brunswick, communicating the decision of the Canadian Government to undertake the survey of the line of the proposed Intercolonial Railway on its own responsibility, and at its sole expense, leaving the question of making any reimbursement to the discretion of the Governments of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.

I am, &c.
