Head had declined an offer of Guiana, as he was in 1864 to decline Ceylon, ostensibly on grounds of Lady HeadÂ’s health, but he accepted Canada with alacrity, and travelled from Fredericton to Quebec without returning to England.
Head was in London in 1857 when the select committee on the HBC was deliberating, and there was a considerable resemblance between his known views and the final conclusions of the committee.
Cartier was asked by Head to form the government, and he, Macdonald, and their colleagues, by shifting portfolios and adroitly relying on an ingenious interpretation of the relevant act (20 Vict., c.17), avoided the necessity of seeking re-election.
