Goderich Explains His Delay In Replying To Peel'S Note And Continues 'I Have Not Had Time This Morning To Look At The Printed Papers: But I Do Not Think That Any Dispatch Of Mine Has, Upon The Subject, Been Published. I Think There Was Only One Written, Either In 1831 Or 1832: But I Doubt Whether It Went Into The Question Of Incorporation. I Remember That The Principle Object Which I Had In View, As An Essential Preliminary To Any Practical Reasons, Was To Obtain A Legal Decision As To The Right, Whether In The Court Or The Seminary: And That Question Of The Right Was, If I Do Not Mistake, Greatly…..By The Effort Which The French….May Have Had Upon….Ecclesiastical Property In France And The Bearing That That Had Upon The Remaining Members Of The Seminary In Canada' Goderich Further Writes 'I Wish I Could Call To Mind More Accurately The Whole Text Of My Dispatch: But Surely The Government Can Produce It If It Would Support Their View'. Very Slight Traces Of Former Mounting To The Right Edge Of The Final Page, Vg Robert Peel (1788-1850) British Prime Minister 1834-35 & 1841-46. ] International Autograph Auctions' Autograph Auction September 2015 Saturday, 26th September 2015 Estimate: £150-200
