2. Full particulars as to the measures passed shall be forwarded by an Early opportunity.
3. It will now suffice if I mention that I found the Legislative Council in an obliging, conciliatory humour, while disposed to take more of initiation than usual. A good sign, of course, for the working of our present Constitution; I havecarriedManuscript image carried all the Bills to which I attached importance.

I have the honor to be
My Lord,
Your Lordship's most obedient,
humble Servant.
