I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your Despatch of 9th July, informing me that the meeting of the Delegates from the Governments of the Provinces of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island, to consider the propriety of a Union of these Provinces, had been fixed to take place at Charlottetown on September 1st.
I have the honor to inform you, the Honorable Messrs. MacDonald, Cartier, Brown, and Galt, have been appointed as a Deputation from the Government of Canada to attend the Conference, with a view to ascertain whether Canada might not be included in the proposed Union.
I have, &c.,
