No. 9
16 March 1866
I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your Despatch No. 2 of the 9th January, enclosing a Resolution passed by the Legislative Assembly of Vancouver Island, praying that the Colony may be allowed to share in the benefits of any Commercial Treaty concluded with the United StatesManuscript image in favor of the British North American Provinces.
I have to request you to inform the Assembly that the Reciprocity Treaty with the United States has been brought to an end, and that no other Treaty is at the present time in course of negotiation, but that this Resolution will be borne in mind in case the subject should be revived.
I have the honor to be
Your most obedient
humble Servant
Edward Cardwell
