THE RIGHT HONORABLE GENERAL
THE EARL OF DALHOUSIE,
KNIGHT GRAND CROSS OF THE MOST HONOKABLE MILITARY
ORDER OF THE BATH, &c. &c. &c.
When His late Majesty King George the Fourth was graciously pleased to confer the honor of Commander-in-Chief of his Armies in India, on Four Lordship, the capital of the British dominions in North America hailed it, amidst regret for your
as a proud mark of the Sovereign’s favor, and approbation of your Lordship’s long and arduous administration of the Government of this part of the King's dominions.
Convinced, my Lord, that whatever relates to the renown of this important and interesting city will not be unacceptable to you, I beg leave to dedicate the following pages to your Lordship : they may serve to recall to your mind the portion of your valuable public life, passed in this quarter of the world, in which the honor of the King and the best interests of the Province were so conspicuously upheld by your Lordship.
I have the honor to be,
Faithful and devoted Servant,
47, St. Lewis Street, Quebec, November 10th, 1834.
