In answer to your inquiry, I beg to say, that no day is yet fixed for the presentation of the address to Her Majesty, but I believe the day will be determined on at one of the two councils which will be held this week – vizt Thursday next at 3 o’clock and Saturday next at half past 3 o’clock. Should you not be in Town by that time I will take care and apprise you.

I have the honor to be Sir,
Your’s <sic> very resptfly
