Quebec, June 12, 1865.
SIR,—I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your Despatch of the 6th instant, transmitting copies of a communication from your Executive Council, and of correspondence respecting the alleged change in the terms of one of the Resolutions of the Conference held at Quebec last Autumn, for the consideration of a Union of the. British North American Provinces.
In reply, I beg leave to say, that several leading Members of the Canadian Government, together with Lieutenant Colonel Besnard, who acted as Secretary to the Conference, are at present absent from the Province on public business.
Their return is expected in a short time, and when they arrive, I shall not fail to lay your Despatch and its Enclosure before the Executive Council.
I have, &c. (Signed) MONCK.
