Copy of a Report of a Committee of the Honorable the Privy Council, approved by His Excellency the Governor General in Council on the 2nd October, 1873.

On a memorandum dated 30th September, 1873, from the Honorable the Minister of the Interior, submitting a surrender received through Superintendent Plummer, bearing date 20th May, 1873, and executed by the Chiefs and Principal Men of the Garden River band of Ojibway Indians, conveying to the Crown, in trust, lots numbers fifteen on the north side of Milton street, fifteen on the south side of Milton street, fifteen on the north side of Prince street, fifteen on the south side of Prince street, in the town plot of Chinguacouse, and containing two acres and one-quarter, and situated within this said reserve, for the use and benefit of the Church of England Mission established at the Garden River Reserve.

The Minister reports that Mr. Plummer, in a letter accompanying the said instrument, states that the dwelling house and premises of the Church of England Missionary are situated on the said lots, and that a large building for a general school or an academy for the training of Indians is about to be erected.

He accordingly recommends that the surrender so executed, which has been duly proved before the Judge for the District of Algoma, be accepted by Your Excellency in Council, in accordance with the provisions of the 8th section of the Act 31 Victoria, chapter 42.

The Committee advise that the surrender be accepted accordingly.
