I see no reason why this Act should not be sanctioned. It has been passed without the slightest opposition, and is entirely a matter for the consideration & decision of the local Legislature.
HTH 12/5
Certainly. It seems to me impossible to read the report of the A.G. without seeing how entirely the case is one in which the settlers should be allowed to fight their own way thro' their own difficulties.
(In point of fact I should think the law was a good one.)
FR 13/5
Quite a matter for the settlers themselves. Sanction.
