I am, however, to request that you will state to Earl GranvillethatManuscript image that Lord Clarendon would suggest that this Convention should not be sent, as proposed by Lord Granville, to the Governors of Canada and British Columbia, until it is known what decision the Government of the United States have come to in regard to it.
I am,
Your most obedient
humble Servant
