No. 87
19 November 1867
I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your two despatches, No. 126, and Separate of the 24th September the first enclosing copy of a resolution passed by the Legislative Council in favor of negotiations being entered into for the union of British Columbia with theEasternManuscript image Eastern Provinces of North America, the second containing your remarks upon the subject.
Whatever might be the advantages which in the course time might result from the Union of British North America under one Government it appears to me that the consideration of that question must at all events await the time when the intervening territory now under the control of the Hudsons Bay Company shall have been incorporated with the Confederation.
I have the honor to be
Your most obedient
humble Servant
Buckingham & Chandos
