§ MR. A. MILLS
asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies, Whether any replies have been received to the Despatch addressed by Lord Carnarvon, through the Governor of the Cape Colony, on the 4th of May last, to the Presidents of the Trans-Vaal Republic and the Orange Free State, and the Governments of Natal and Grigna Land West, respecting a proposed Conference of Delegates from the Colonies and States of South Africa; and, whether there would be any objection to lay such replies when received upon the Table of the House?
in reply, said, no answers had as yet been received. Papers on the subject would be presented in due course, but the Correspondence was wholly incomplete, and it was at present obviously impossible to make any definite promise on the subject.
