My Lord Duke,
I have the honor to forward an authenticated and two plain copies of an Ordinance of the late Session of the Legislature of this Colony entitled;No 33.Manuscript image No 33. An Ordinance to regulate the solemnization of Marriage.

Marriage Act. This Ordce extends to the whole Colony the B Columbian Marriage Ordinance of 1865. Sanction.
As this Ordinance is precisely the same as the former one I suppose it need not be sent to the Queen's Advocate.
