LORD DALHOUSIE TO LORD BATHURST.
COLONIAL OFFICE RECORDS 42/200. LOWER CANADA 1824.
No. 163. Quebec, 10th March, 1824.
I have the honour to transmit to Your Lordship copy of an address presented to me by the Legislative Council of this Province setting forth the evils and inconveniences that have arisen from the Separation of a portion of the Coast of Labrador and the adjacent Islands, from Lower Canada of which they once formed a part, and praying that the same may be re-annexed to this Province; And as I am myself convinced that this representation is well-founded in every respect, I beg leave to give it my strongest recommendation and support.
I have the honour to be, etc.,
The Right Honourable
The Earl of Bathurst.
