25th January, 1865
I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your Despatch, of the, 9th instant, in which you inform me, that you have decided to summon the Parliament of Prince Edward Island to meet on the 28th February, but that if I desire, in connection with the intention of submitting to its consideration the proposed Union of the British North American Provinces, that it should meet on an earlier day, you are prepared to meet my views in reference to this matter.
I have the honor to say, in reply, that I do not think any advantage would be gained by assembling your Parliament at an earlier day than which you mention.
I hope to transmit to you, by an early opportunity, the terms of the motion in which it is proposed by the Canadian ministry to bring this important subject under the consideration of the Parliament of this Province.
I have, &c. &c.
Lieut. Governor Dundas,
&c. &c. &c.
