Legislative Council Chamber. 26 January 1846. Instructing members of the legislature to attend the next session. Signed "John C. Haliburton"

Note on top left was missing paper with a tissue replacement now. The signature had a paper tear through part of the last name and along a fold, both now repaired. Good condition otherwise.

Pencil writing on bottom portion unreadable. John C. Halliburton (1806-1884), Halifax barrister, was the eldest son of Chief Justice Sir Brenton Halliburton. He was admitted to the bar in 1829 and was appointed deputy-clerk of the Legislative Council and in 1838, Clerk of the Legislative Council, a position he held for many years. In 1840 he challenged and fought a bloodless duel with Joseph Howe: he missed and Howe fired his pistol into the air.
