Right, I think. There is no need to encourage a bad taste for big Names in the British Colonies; and a single Council cannot reasonably be called a Parliament. Shd we not perhaps acke, and express agreement with him that the nameManuscript image of Parliament is not appropriate to a Legislature consisting of a single Legislative Council?

I find that the instruction about the word Parlt was given to him already on the 7th June 1864. As that is the case, this may be Put by.
