Will the Provincial Solicitor be good enough to inform me if there is any law against issuing a license to the H.B.S.B. establishment for the sale of beer and spirits, I am not sure whether the New Munster licensing act is still in force which precludes the issue of a bush license within a distance of three miles from a township, see B. No.7

Session 3 No.21, Clause 2.

Colonel Russell has applied for a license chiefly for the sale of beer for the use of the working men on the establishment.


Donald McLean
Feb.8, 69


The Ordinance referred to is still in force -- and if the H.B.S.B. Company's Establishment is within 3 miles of a Town I do not think the Bush License can be granted.
J. W. Wilson 8 Feby., 1869
