With reference to my dispatch No. 46, of the 1st inst., transmitting to you an order of Her Majesty in Council, leaving to their operation, Chapters 1, 2 & 3 of the Act, of the Legislature of Newfoundland during the year 1683, I have the honour to transmit to you a copy of the answer which has been returned, by my directions, to various remonstrances against that portion of the first named act, which relates to the imposition and collection of duties on the coast of Labrador.

I have, etc.,
