      In the absence of His Excellency the Governor, I beg to transmit to your care a Memorial from the Chamber of Commerce to the Right Hble Earl Bathurst relative to the re-annexing the Coast of Labrador to the Government of Canada—a subject, which is considered so intimately connected with the welfare of the Trade and Fisheries prosecuted by many of the Inhabitants of this Island that, I flatter myself it will obtain His Lordship's consideration, and be a sufficient apology for the trouble I again give to you
I have the honor to be          
Sir
