LETTER FROM GOVERNOR OF NEWFOUNDLAND TO GOVERNOR OF CANADA.


To His Excellency ye Governor of
    Canada to make known to him
    the Order issued out in this Gov-
    ernment for ye fishery on the
    coast of Labradore, in order to
    put a stop to Canadians resorting
    this coast.
GUERNSEY, PITT'S HARBOR,           
28th August, 1765.  

    I find many people from Canada resort to the Fisheries under my government, and it being contrary to the laws relating thereto for any other than the King's subjects from his Dominions in Europe to carry on these fisheries, I must desire the favour of you to make the inclosed orders publicly known, in order to put a stop to people from Canada resorting to this coast, otherways all my measures for establishing the Trade and Fishery in my Government on the most advantageous footing for the benefit of the nation in pursuance of His Majesty's Commands to me will be rendered abortive.

I am &c.,                          

HUGH PALLISER.
