[Introduction]TO THE HONORABLE THE COMMISSIONERS OF PUBLIC WORKS FOR THE CANADIAN GOVERNMENT.
By your instructions dated August 12th, 1854, I am called upon to make examinations and report on a proposed Canal to connect the St. Lawrence River with Lake Champlain, and also on questions of trade and engineering on this and works in connection, that will be involved with this enterprize. The general practicability of the work is not questioned, and as several matters relating to the proposed Canal will materially depend on the views that may be taken of its connections, it has appeared proper to discuss them in the first place.
