Question

asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether a Despatch from Mr. Fish, dated May 22nd, 1876, in relation to the extradition of Ezra Winslow, was received at the Foreign Office on June 6th; and, whether there is any objection to lay the same upon the Table of the House?

in reply, said, a despatch of the nature referred to had been received at the Foreign Office, and it was the intention of Her Majesty's Government ultimately to lay it upon the Table of the House; but it would be premature to do so before the Government had given an answer to it, which they had not yet done.
