No. 61
10th April 1867
My Lord,
I have the honor to report that I closed the first Session of the Legislature of the United Colony on the 2nd Instant copy of which I enclose.
2. Considering themanyManuscript image many conflicting interests of the two sections of the present Colony, everything passed most satisfactory. The attendence of Members was regular, and with rare exceptions characterized by order and decorum. I may add that throughout the Session my relations with the Council were of a friendly nature.
3. No less than forty five bills were passed. TotheManuscript image the great majority of these I have assented. These measures will be fully reported to Your Lordship in future Despatches. A deficiency of type in the Government Printing office prevents my forwarding the Ordinances of the Session at once.
I have the honor to be,
My Lord
Your most obedient
humble Servant
Frederick Seymour
