Reciprocity Treaty

David Christie [Erie, elected 1858] gave notice that on Friday (to-day) he would move to the following effects:—

“That an humble Address be presented to His Excellency the Governor General, praying that his Excellency will please to cause to be laid before this House copies of all correspondence which may have taken place since the beginning of last Session, between the Government of this Province and the British Government with Her Majesty’s Representative at Washington in relation to the Reciprocity Treaty.”[2]
