[Assented to 25th February, 1899.]
WHEREAS the north-eastern, northern and north-western frontier of the Province of Quebec, which served as the boundary of certain counties of this Province, was definitively established by the act of the Parliament of Canada, 61 Victoria, chapter 3, in accordance with the consent of the Legislature of Quebec, expressed by the act 61 Victoria, chapter 6 ;
