COPY of a DESPATCH from the Right Hon. Earl of CARNARVON to Lieut.-General Sir W. F. WILLIAMS, Bart., K.C.B.
Downing Street, November 22, 1866.
I HAVE the honour to acknowledge the receipt of your Despatch No. 71,* of the 8th of this month, enclosing a letter from the Bishop of Nova Scotia, in which his Lordship requests that the subject of schools, as regulated under the existing local Act, may be brought under the consideration of the Delegates at present in this country.
The question of education is one of the important subjects which must be discussed by the North American Delegates when in conference in this country ; but at present i can only promise that the letter of the Bishop of Nova Scotia shall receive full consideration. I have to request that you will communicate to the Bishop the substance of this Despatch.
I have, &c.
Lieut.-General Sir W. F. Williams, Bart., K.C.B.,
