No. 13
15 February 1868
I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your despatch Separate of the 28th November enclosing a letter from the Attorney General of British Columbia requesting that the opinion of the Law Officers of the Crown may be obtained as to the effect of theActManuscript image Act of Union upon the Legislative Constitution of the Colony.
Your own views upon the subject and those of the Attorney are so clearly right, and it is so impossible that the supposed construction should be so set up as to invalidate the Acts of the Council that it is neither necessary nor advisable to take the Law Officers' opinion upon the point raised in the letter of the Attorney General.
I have the honor to be
Your most obedient
humble Servant
Buckingham & Chandos
