dc.description.abstractLetter to Alex. Hamilton, Queenston, from David Thorburn, House of Assembly. The letter concerns the War Loss bill. It is written that the War Loss bill has been assented to by His Majesty, and as soon as the Governor directs the Receiver General to pay the sufferers, it will be done as soon after as he can raise the money. He notes that payment can only be received by the sufferer or their appointed power of attorney, and asks that Hamilton send him his power of attorney so that he can attend to the business on his behalf. He states that it may be a few weeks before the Receiver General will be ready to pay, but due notice will be given through the Gazette. He notes that he is very anxious that the petitions concerning the Welland Canal be received, as the Welland Canal Committee of investigation have made a first report. The House was put into a committee and the debate continued till the House adjourned. He thinks that Mr. Merritt will get the House to adopt all that he could desire and provides further details of the anticipated funding. He states that he has sent a letter to Mr. Rorback, who has been selected to carry the petition from Stamford up and to hasten the petitioners, December 5, 1836.
