EXTRACT OF A DESPATCH FROM GOVERNOR WALDEGRAVE TO RT. HON. HENRY DUNDAS.



RECORD BOOK, ST. JOHN'S, NEWFOUNDLAND, VOLUME 14, p. 101.

Earl of Cardigan's,                          
Upper Grosvenor Street,          
16th December, 1797.     
SIR,
        The enclosed is an extract from a book (I believe) of acknowledged authority, being written by Mr. Stokes, a Barrister, and late Chief Justice of Georgia. Although the arguments therein set forth may be admissible with respect to the Continent of North America, yet they can certainly have no weight with regard to the Island of Newfoundland, which in fact is a sort of amphibious government, totally unlike any other, consequently should be dependant only on the Mother Country.
*               *               *              *
I have the honour to be,                         
Sir, &c. &c.,                            
WM. WALDEGRAVE.  
Right Hon.,
        Henry Dundas,
               &c. &c.
