I am directed by the Earl of Clarendon to acknowledge the receipt of your Letter of the 2nd instant forwarding a copy of a Resolution passed by the Legislative Council of British Columbia relative to the Island of San Juan; and in reply I am to request that you will state to Earl Granville that Lord Clarendon fears that it will be of no use at present to moot this question with the United States Government.
I am to add that copies of this correspondence will be sent, Confidentially, to Mr Thornton by this day's Mail.
