Copy of letter from John A. Beckwith to His Excellency Lieutenant-Governor L. A. Wilmot. – December 1870. – 4 pp. of textual records. Beckwith reports on his attendance at a Dominion-provincial conference on immigration held at Ottawa in October 1870. He recounts the opinions of several participants on the most suitable candidates for emigration and comments on the arrival of Miss Rye’s 38 female orphans at Saint John in November 1870. He states that he has instructed Mr. Shives, the immigrant agent at Saint John, “to inform Miss Rye that any reasonable number which she may send us next year will be carefully distributed”.
