Legislative Assembly of Prince Edward Island, 23 April 1873, Prince Edward Island Confederation with Canada.

[W.C.F. Robinson-] When the papers relative to the proposed Union of Prince Edward Island with the Dominion of Canada shall have been laid before us, we will approach the consideration of that subject in a manner consistent with its grave importance, and with a strict regard for the best interests of this Island; while the earnest hope of the   Imperial Government, that Prince Edward Island will not lose this opportunity of union with the Dominion necessarily demands, and will receive our most serious consideration.
