No. 11
20th June 1864
Sir,
I have the honor to request that you will inform the Mayor of Victoria that General Knollys has received from him, and has laid before the Prince and Princess of Wales an Address of Congratulation from the Mayor and Council of Victoria on the Auspicious occasion of the birth of a son to their Royal Highnesses.

The sentiments of loyalty and of attachment to the Royal Family contained in this address are very gratifying, and I am convinced that the Corporation of the City of Victoria could have had no wish to convey it to it's destination otherwise than in a regular manner. At the same time, in order to preserve hereafter uniformity in public correspondence, it is necessary for me to request you to apprize the Mayor of Victoria that the practice in all the British Colonies is to transmit such Addresses through the Governor of the Colony to the Secretary of State.
I have the honor to be
Sir,
Your most obedient
humble servant
Edward Cardwell
