    57/165
    10th Janry 1857

    Under Secretary Lands & Public Works
    On the subject of the establishment of the
    Electric Telegraph
    57-37
    Department of Land and Public Works
    Sydney 9th January 1857

    with reference to the address from
    the Legislative Assembly date of 30th Ultimo,
    on the subject of the establishment of
    the Electric Telegraph forwarded under
    Blank Cover from your Department
    on the 3rd Instant, I am directed to
    request that you will have the goodness
    to move the Honorable the Colonial Secretary
    to invite the Cooperation of the Government
    of Victoria in connecting the Cities of
    Sydney and Melbourne by Electric
    Telegraph.

    2 I am also directed to state
    that it is considered desirable by the
    Secretary



    The Under Secretary
    Colonial Secretary’s Office



    Secretary for Lands and Public Works
    that the two systems should in effect
    form one, by an union at Albury
    and to accomplish this in the most
    satisfactory manner it will be necessary
    to form a station there which should
    be under the joint management
    of the two Governments. With regard
    to this matter especially it is conceived
    that an expression of the views of
    the Government of Victoria should be
    solicited.

    3. I am add that the Secretary
    to the Treasury has been requested
    to place the sum of £38,000 on an
    additional



    additional Estimate for this year for
    the purpose of carrying out the report
    of the Select Committee on the
    establishment of an Electric Telegraph
    between Sydney and Melbourne

    I have the honor to be
    Sir
    Your most obedient Servant

    Michael Fitzpatrick
