COLONIAL OFFICE TO Mr. PINSENT.
Downing Street, 9th January, 1890.
R. J. Pinsent, Esq.
SIR,—With reference to the question of the adjustment of the boundaries between Canada and Newfoundland, on the Labrador coast, a matter to which you have called the attention of the governor of Newfoundland on more than one occasion, and to which you alluded in a recent interview with the secretary of state, I am directed by Lord Knutsford to transmit to you for any observations which you may wish to offer thereupon, a copy of a despatch from the governor general of Canada with its enclosures on the subject.
I am also to enclose for your perusal an order in council dated the 31st July, 1880, annexing to the dominion of Canada all British territories and possessions in North America not already included in the Dominion, with the exception of the colony of Newfoundland and its dependencies.
I have, etc.,
ROBERT G. W. HERBERT.
