 404 Resignation of Hon. E. Brown. 1877
RETURN
To an Address oi the Legislative Assembly, praying for copies of all papers relating
to the resignation of the Honourable Ebenezer Brown, as President of the
Executive Council.
By Command.
A. C. ELLIOTT,
Provincial Secretary.
Provincial Secretary's Office,
2Sih February, 1877.
The Honourable Mr. Elliott to the Honourable Mr. Brown.
Victoria, September 10th, 1876.
My Bear Brown,
The part you. have taken in reference to those resolutions regarding the Carnarvon Terms has placed me in a most absurd and unenviable position here. I am, as you
know, firmly and faithfully bound to the Carnarvon Terms, and yet the President of the
Council has publicly declared himself hostile to that arrangement.
My best friends, as well as my enemies, say that I ought to resign as I am identified
with your opinions publicly expressed. Any split with you on any question would pain
me very much, but on the point in question it is impossible that we could agree; what
therefore is to be done? I can only see the alternative, that either you or I resign. Our
division on this point will never prevent our agreeing hereafter and being joined more
firmly in any subsequent ministry.
I hope, my dear Brown, you will take this communication in a proper spirit, the
way it is intended—in perfect good nature and with great regret.
Brop me a line by return mail, should you not come down to-morrow.
Ever, very truly yours,
(Signed)       A. C. Elliott.
The Honourable Mr. Brown to the Honourable Mr. Elliott.
New Westminster,
September 11th, 1876.
My Bear Elliott,
In reply to yours of yesterday's date, I beg to hand you my resignation as President
of the Executive Council.
1 quite understand the position in which you are placed, but you will see the view
that I take of the matter by my letter in the newspapers.
I shall be down on Friday next.
Yours respectfully,
(Signed)       E. Brown. GEADU ATED    SCALE |:
