My Lord,
I have the honor to forward an Authenticated and two plain Copies of an ordinance of the late Session of the Legislature, entitled;No. 17.Manuscript image No. 17. An Ordinance respecting the practise of Surgery, and for the encouragement of the Study of Anatomy.
2. The subject is by no means a pleasing one and the Government Members of Council were generally opposed to it.
3. It will rest with Your Lordship, after reading the Attorney General's report, to determine whether the measureshallManuscript image shall be allowed or not. On the whole I think it advisable that it should not be disallowed.
I have the honor to be,
My Lord,
Your Lordship's most obedient,

I do not myself see much objection to this Ordinance, but looking to the opposition that has been offered to it, I should not be disposed to sanction it.
I wd write to the Govr requesting for fuller information as to the ground upon which the opposition was based, & suggesting a doubt whether the Ordinance should not be confined to teachers of Surgery & Anatomy.

I am inclined to agree with the Governor & Attorney General. If the Govt Members of Council opposed it, I presume it was carried by the non officials, which would look as if there was no public feeling against it.
