Excerpt from Union of the Colonies of British North America: Being Three Papers Upon This Subject, Originally Published Between the Years 1854 and 1861 Under these circumstances, it may now be not unreason ably asked, - why republish the following papers? When the importance - nay, the necessity, of a Union of the C010 nies is conceded, and when our leading statesmen are actually engaged in arranging the terms of that Union, why republish works mainly devoted to advocating that necessity, and which treat only generally of the practical details? The answer may be given in very few words. The author has very fre quently of late been applied to for copies of some one, or all, of these essays; but all have been, for some time, out of print, and therefore not procurable. Again, whatever the result of the Quebec Convention, it is probable that the reso lutions of that body will be submitted to the several Colonial Legislatures for approval before being acted upon. It is possible that the scheme matured by the Convention may be opposed, in whole or in part, in some of those Legislatures. Under these circumstances, the writer considers it the duty of every person entertaining such earnest convictions as he does of the absolute necessity of the projected Union for the well-being of his country, to do anything and every thing he honestly can which may, by any possibility, aid in the consummation of that Union.
