Ottawa, December 15, 1939.
To the Right Honourable Ernest Lapointe,
Acting Secretary of State,
Ottawa.
Dear Sir,—I have the honour to submit to you herewith the Annual
Report of the Public Archives for the year 1939, which includes reports of
the departmental Divisions and three appendices containing historical
documents and bibliographical material.
Respectfully yours,
GUSTAVE LANCTOT,
Dominion Archivist.  REPORT
OF THE PUBLIC ARCHIVES
FOR THE YEAR 1939
The visit to Canada of our Sovereigns, George VI and Elizabeth,
made this year a memorable one; consequently it is proper to mention
first that Her Majesty the Queen conferred a signal honour on the Archives
by presenting to it two precious historical pieces. The first is the portrait
of Wolfe as a young man, by the artist Benjamin West, famous chiefly
for his painting The Death of Wolfe. The second is the last letter written
by Wolfe to his mother, dated August 31, 1759, thirteen days before his
death on the Plains of Abraham. The letter is extremely interesting
because it reveals to us something of Wolfe and his psychological complex.
One is first struck by the formal tone customary at that period: the son
addressing his mother Dear Madam, and signing himself Your obedient and
affectionate son. The letter also discloses in the son, the strategist who was
able to judge with such precision both his own situation and the clever
tactics of his adversary. Nothing is more modern, however, in that letter
of 1759, than the sentence in which Wolfe counsels his mother not to
"meddle with the Funds".
This is the first time in its history that the Public Archives can boast
of a gift from Royalty. This distinction may perhaps be connected with
the presence of the Dominion Archivist on the Royal Tour, as official
historian—a fact which aroused in Their Majesties a keener interest in our
history and the institution which preserves its materials.
It is not out of place to add here that the Archives has received from
the Department of Transport the gold-plated telephone instrument used
by the King and Queen in the Royal train, all the cars of which were
connected by telephone.
Lastly, the King's visit suggested the idea of an exhibition of pictures,
portraits, prints, and photographs which recalled the past visits of the
Princes who later became William IV, Edward VII, George V, and Edward
VIII.   This exhibition continued throughout the year.
The Archives must express here its deepest regret at the passing, last
July, of the Honourable Fernand Rinfret who was Secretary of State and
in charge of this department from 1926 to 1930, and from 1935 until the
time of his death. The Archives has lost in him not only their official chief,
but also a true friend. He took a personal interest in the work of the
department and staunchly upheld its policies. He gave it valuable and
constant support, and took pride in helping to enrich the storehouse of
Canada's history.
As regards the regular work of the department, the year 1939 was
one of the most active. The volume of correspondence established anew
record in the number of letters and requests for information received, 8 PUBLIC ARCHIVES
showing an increase of 30% over 1938 which had itself exceeded 1937,
thus a total increase of 40% has been registered in the course of the last
two years. All this reveals the interest of students and historians and the
value they place on the Archives as a source of information.
As this year was the third centenary of the founding of the first hospital
and the first girls' school in Canada, the department organized an exhibition
of manuscripts, books, and prints concerning the H6tel Dieu and the
Ursulines of Quebec. A second exhibition of pamphlets, documents, and
pictures was arranged by the Division of Technical Services to mark the
centenary of the Durham Report, the first official recognition of the claims
of Mackenzie and Papineau for responsible government.
Another exhibit of plans, drawings and prints to illustrate the evolution
of the Canadian house was prepared by the Map Division when the Royal
Architectural Institute of Canada met in February.
As can be seen by reading the reports of the divisions and the list of
donations, the Archives has continued in the course of the year to receive
and acquire many important items. It will not be without interest to note
the most remarkable acquisitions: twenty-eight letters (1872-1887) of
Sir John A. Macdonald to Dalton McCarthy; two projects of political
reform (1834 and 1838) by Charles Laurier, ancestor of Sir Wilfrid Laurier;
an unpublished confidential report of Commissioner W. B. Coltman on
the troubles in the West in 1819; an important collection of papers—
administration and correspondence—concerning the seigniories of Sorel, of
Noyan, and of Sabrevoix; the register of letters of Attorney-General
Jonathan Sewell, in 1804; and a document signed by the illustrious
Captain Cook, who served in the fleet that brought Wolfe and his troops
before Quebec.
In addition to the original items above noted, the following transcribed or photo copies are worthy of mention: Journals of David Thompson,
1789-1847; official documents relating to the French neutrals, that is,
the Acadians, in Massachusetts, 1755-69; register of letters of R. J.
Sanders, of Albany (1742-58), who carried on a fur-smuggling business
with Montreal; book of hearings of the seigniorial jurisdiction of Boucher-
ville, 1739-1747; the diary of William Falconer, of the Hudson's Bay
Company, 1768-9, also his Remarks on Hudson's Bay climate and natives.
From London the Archives received numerous documents, among
them were two collections which must be mentioned. The War Office
contributed Series 34, volumes 43-46, (1756-1763), which contains the
important correspondence of General Amherst with the following staff
officers: Monckton, Lyman, Hopson, Forbes, Stanwix, Gage, and Wolfe.
The Colonial Office sent us Series 387, volumes 1-11, (1830-1838), containing the papers of Lord Aylmer, Governor of Lower Canada. They are
especially valuable because they include a number of private and confidential despatches which are not found among the official correspondence
in G Series, at the Ottawa Archives.
From the National Archives of France have come, among others,
Series V6, cartons 41-69 (1627-28), which includes the decrees of the
Privy Council concerning Poutrincourt, Lomeron, de Lauson, Daniel, and
other personages in early Canadian history; as well as Series Zu (volumes REPORT FOR THE YEAR 1939 9
6, 7 and 103), in which are found numerous judgments of the Admiralty
of France relating to the trading companies of New France between 1600
and 1628. From the Department of Foreign Affairs we received the
Memoires et Documents, France series, which throws new light on the
colonial commerce of France, especially from 1602 to 1768; and the
Mhnoires et Documents, Angleterre series containing many items relative
to British projects in Canada. Students of economic history will find it
profitable to consult the documents in the Archives of La Rochelle, Etude
Menon, Minutes Jupin, 1620-1662, which are composed of contracts
passed by Nicolas Denis, Aunay de Charnisay, Claude de Razilly, and
Charles Daniel in connection with commerce in Acadia.
Besides several interesting atlases, the Map Division acquired in the
course of the year more than three hundred maps. The list will be found
in the report of the division. From among the most important we would
single out, a map of the mouth of the Richelieu River, in 1695; a map of
the Acadia of 1702; a map of the St. Lawrence River indicating the King's
Posts, 1857; a map of Canada, from Sault Ste. Marie to the Saguenay, by
David Taylor, in 1834; also a plan of Sorel in 1704 and a plan of Fort
Niagara about 1726.
The Picture Division, which has just completed an indexed catalogue
of the photographs of the Great War, probably augmented its collection
more than any other division during last year. It was enriched by 9,229
new items, comprising paintings, water-colours, prints. The following
ones must be observed: an album of water-colours by Mrs. John Graves
Simcoe; 86 sketches of Quebec and the Thousand Islands (1827-1865) by
Lieutenant Colonel William Denny; 33 water-colours of the Rocky
Mountains, by F. G. Gale; an album of sketches of Quebec and vicinity,
by E. R. Hale, 1870-1880; 40 water-colours of scenes in Quebec, by
Lieutenant Colonel Percy, about 1840.
Our youngest division, that of Technical Auxiliary Services, is expanding principally because of its system of collaboration and exchange with
the services of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and the Motion
Picture Bureau. This year a certain number of phonograph records were
received as well as several films. An initial purchase has just been concluded which will assure delivery of several hundred documentary films.
In addition, the division is now registering more than a hundred records
which will enrich its collection considerably.
Pursuing its work of reorganization, the department this year finished
the calendar of the State Papers of Lower Canada and those of Upper
Canada which had awaited completion since 1904. Likewise, the calendar
of the Selkirk Papers has been completed, and the typewritten text is now
available to research students. The calendars of the State Papers of Prince
Edward Island and of Nova Scotia are now being finished, the first part
having appeared before 1902. Further, the index of the calendars of the
important series F3 and B, which contain parts of the official correspondence
of the French regime, is now completed and will be printed next year.
In the meantime, several collections of documents which have been
in the basement of the Archives for years are being examined and classified.
Thus, an inventory has been taken of a quantity of documents received 10
PUBLIC ARCHIVES
from the Department of Finance. A certain number of worthless items
were destroyed, whereas the useful documents were classified and placed
in the Manuscript Room. Also, cases of military documents were examined
and the items classified and put with the collections they complete. This
work of house cleaning and classifying will soon reach other collections
which are still untouched.
Last year, the Archives was able to distribute thousands of historical
maps to the High Schools throughout the provinces. This year, a number
of institutions have benefited by a distribution of our surplus official
publications and other books received from elsewhere. In this way the
department enriched the Prairie Library, organized by the Lady Tweeds-
muir, to the extent of several hundred volumes, besides making a gift of
300 books to the General Committee for the Entertainment of Troops.
In addition, the Archives exchanged books and information, in the best
spirit of collaboration, with various institutions, including the Public
Library of Toronto, the Municipal Library of Montreal, the Carnegie
Library of Ottawa, the library of the Western University, and the Municipal
Archives of Vancouver.
The present report is composed of three appendices. The first contains
the letter and portrait of Wolfe, donated to the Archives by Her Majesty
Queen Elizabeth.
The second appendix groups together a number of historical documents.
The most important is an original manuscript signed by Cavelier de La
Salle, the great explorer, who was the first to descend the Mississippi to
its mouth, discovering Louisiana in 1682. It is the only known document
to bear his signature, which is accompanied by that of abbe de Queylus,
the opponent of Bishop Laval.
This is a deed by which La Salle cedes back to the Seminary of Saint
Sulpice the major part of his seigniory, called Saint Sulpice, later known
as Lachine. Margry, in his first volume of DScouvertes et Etablissements des
Frangais, gives but a brief account of it. The complete text reveals new
facts. It indicates that it was owing to the judicious support of the
Sulpicians that La Salle was able to pursue his projects of exploration, for
they agreed to repurchase his seigniory at the enormous price, at that
period, of 1780 livres. This repurchase was really a financial contribution
to permit La Salle to carry out the first part of his explorations, in order
that he might prove the justification and practicability of his schemes, as
well as the advantages which might result. Further, contrary to what the
historians of Montreal believed, including the Sulpicians Rosseau and
Maurault, the document proves that de Queylus was not the first superior
of the Canadian community. That distinction belongs to Dominique
Gallinier.
Other documents in the second appendix worthy of mention are the
letter of Governor Cornwallis, announcing the choice of the site and the
clearing of the ground at the time of the founding of Halifax in 1749; the
letter of Governor Patterson describing the pitiful condition of the first
colonists of Prince Edward Island in 1770; and the letter of Governor
Thomas Carleton informing the Cabinet of the site and name of the capital
of New Brunswick. REPORT FOR THE YEAR 1939 11
The list, which follows next, of the members of the personnel of the
North West Company in 1797 will not fail to be interesting because of the
new information it gives regarding the career of many traders.
Next comes an unpublished letter (May 1, 1809) of Jules Quesnel,
companion of Simon Fraser and John Stuart in the discovery of the Fraser
River.   It contains many interesting details of this famous voyage.
The two last documents in this appendix concern the acquisition by
Canada of the North West Territories. One is the nomination by the
Hudson's Bay Company of the Governor General of Canada to the post
of Governor of Rupert's Land, with the evident object of preventing any
possible objection to the exercise of its authority in that district. The
second document is the acceptance by Queen Victoria of the surrender to
the Crown of the North West Territories by the Hudson's Bay Company.
This document relating to the constitutional history of the country was
missing until now from our collection. The manuscript exhibits, moreover,
the peculiarity of being the only one in which the law demanded that it be
issued under the seal and privy seal of the sovereign—that is, bearing the
autographed signature of the sovereign at the head of the document and
countersigned by a minister of the Crown at the foot.
The third appendix presents a bibliography of the materials pertaining
to the Rebellion of 1837-38 which are found in the Archives. Intended to
appear in 1938, the centenary of this great historic event, its appearance
was postponed until this year in order that it could be made more complete
by the addition of numerous publications inspired by the centenary. The
time gained by the postponement was used to redraft the plan, increase
the documentation, and make consultation easier.
It might perhaps be mentioned that the Cabinet named the Dominion
Archivist to the post of Chairman of the Military Museum Board. The
new commission went immediately to work.- Owing to the impossibility of
constructing a new building to house its collections, active steps were
taken to convert the former war-trophy building into a permanent museum.
The work of remodelling is proceeding, the show-cases are in place, the
items classified; and the day is not far distant when the Museum will be
able to open its doors to visitors, bringing back recollections of past wars,
particularly the Great War.

INDEX AND INFORMATION DIVISION
During the year the division received thirteen hundred and ninety-five
requests for information, some comparatively simple, others presenting
a more difficult problem. The majority of these historical questions were
extremely interesting. Some required extensive research—the work of
several days—before the necessary information was found.
As in the past, several federal and provincial departments as well as
various universities and historical societies, had recourse to our services.
Questions come not only from Canada but from the United Kingdom, the
United States and France, showing the interest our history attracts.
The Old Age Pensions Board continues to use our help in establishing
officially the ages of petitioners unable to produce birth certificates. In
these searches, the early census and militia lists assist greatly.
As usual, requests for genealogical information exceed all others.
However, there are also those pertaining to the history of Industry, Commerce, and the liberal arts and sciences, in Canada. The teaching of local
history as required by new school curricula also brings numerous requests.
Letters of thanks show how much our services are appreciated. The
work of the year has added 5,200 records to the research files.
The indexes of French and English inventories of the Quebec Series,
Lower Canada, have been commenced and 35,875 slips prepared. When
completed, this exacting piece of work will be of incalculable use.
After several years' work the index of the Quebec Gazette, now
amounting to almost 162,000 cards, has been reviewed and classified in I
alphabetical order.   We can now consult it with the certainty of overlooking ;
nothing.
The indexes to the registers of births, deaths and marriages of Cornwall
(1803-1846), of St. Raphael Church, Glengarry (1805-1831), and of the
Kempville Mission (1845-1868) have been completed; the first containing
4,380 names, the second 16,000, and the third 4,000. The book by Mr. H.
McColl: Some Sketches of the Early Highland Pioneers of the County of
Middlesex has also been indexed as it contains useful information for
research purposes.
The notes left by Mr. Placide Gaudet concerning Acadian families
had to be typewritten, the originals having deteriorated to the point of
becoming unusable.
The division also prepared for binding thirty-five volumes of manuscript items of the S series, Office of the Governors' Secretary.
LUCIEN BRAULT.
PUBLICATIONS DIVISION
During the year 1939 the Publications Division has maintained and
developed, in spite of a reduced personnel, the services for which it is
responsible: translation of historical documents into French or English,
as the case may be; publication in French and English of the Annual
Report; distribution of the various publications of the department. REPORT FOR THE YEAR 1939 25
This division, in existence but two years, is completing the final
organization of its various services. It hopes to succeed in this plan and
assure without delay a harmonious working of all its machinery.
As in the past the division had to reply to requests for publications
of the department. These requests continue to increase, causing a growing
volume of correspondence.
SERAPHIN MARION.
DIVISION OF THE LIBRARY
There was a considerable increase in the services furnished by the
Division of the Library to and for research workers, governmental departments and numerous other inquirers, from abroad as well as in the
Dominion. In addition to routine assistance to visitors and students and
to the compilation of bibliographies and historical and biographical data,
attention was given to a wide range of ancillary inquiries, relating to such
subjects as the Arms and Mottoes of the Provinces, the Royal American
Highland Regiment, Runic Stones, First Production of Kerosene in
Canada, the Canada Temperance Act, Captain Palliser's Report in 1857-
1858, the Annexation Manifesto of 1849, the Reciprocity Treaty of 1854,
the Baronets of Nova Scotia and former Royal visits to Canada. In most
cases, memoranda were prepared or photostats were provided.
Noteworthy, too, were requests from correspondents in the United
States for information on certain phases of Canadian history or concerning
Dominion institutions, to form the bases of "Good Neighbor" talks and
similar addresses before local clubs and other organisations in various
places in the American Union.
A special collection was made by the Division of newspapers and
other publications, covering the period of the visit in May and June of
Their Majesties the King and the Queen. This was supplemented by a
file of the contemporary despatches of the Canadian Press and a comprehensive compilation of press cuttings numbering well over 70,000 items.
These together will constitute an inclusive record, in picture as well as in
letter press, of the events of the Royal Progress in Canada and the United
States and, when arranged in permanent form, will be a valuable and
interesting souvenir of a memorable chapter in Canadian history.
Acknowledgment is gratefully made of the courtesy and co-operation
of the publishers and editors of the newspapers assembled for this purpose.
Nearly 11,000 volumes were issued to students, visitors and members
of the staff. The acquisitions which numbered 581 included mostly reference and encyclopaedic works, text books and current publications as well
as a number of items to be added to our repository of Canadiana.
Gifts are acknowledged from the Library of Congress, the Public
Library of Toronto, the Carnegie Public Library, Ottawa, the Canadian
Press, the London Times, the Department of the Secretary of State,
Dr. J. C. Webster, Robie L. Reid, K.C., and others.

DIVISION OF TECHNICAL AUXILIARY SERVICES
The usual number of inquiries were received and dealt with by the
numismatic section. Some medals were added to the collection together
with a few bank bills.
The cinematographic section, which was created a little more than a
year ago, has acquired a few scenery films and placed an order for over one
hundred news films, while exploring also the American field for earlier
productions when Canada had not yet entered the film-making business.
Some ten gramophone recordings of speeches made by Their Majesties
and other prominent people have been purchased and will be carefully
preserved, as well as several disks of speeches by leading statesmen in
connection with the present war. Arrangements have also been concluded
which will bring to the Archives a good number of voice recordings made
by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.
The museum has been enriched with a few objects connected with the
recent Royal Tour. Amongst them is the telephone used by the King and
Queen on the Royal Train. A large number of photographs and engravings
pertaining to visits made by members of the British Royal Family to
Canada on different occasions were also displayed in the Grey Room.
To commemorate the third centenary of the arrival of the Ursulines
and the Hospitalieres at Quebec in 1639, and also to mark the centenary of
the Durham Report, special displays of pictures and books were made in
the Northcliffe Room.
The photographic section was active in turning out during the year
6,714 photostat prints besides 385 photographs and 198 photograph
negatives.
In the bindery section the number of books bound reached 604 not
counting the 246 that are now in process of being bound. A considerable
number of manuscripts, maps and pictures were repaired and mounted;
1,000 tag filing folders were also made.

from General Wolfe to his Mother
Dear Madam
My writing to you will convince you that no personal evils (worse
than defeats & disappointments) have fallen upon me The enemy puts
nothing to risk, & I cant in conscience put the whole army to risk. My
antagonist has wisely shut himself up in inaccessible entrenchments, so
that I cant get at him without spilling a torrent of blood, and that perhaps
to little purpose. The Marquiss de Montcalm is at the head of a great
number of bad soldiers, and I am at the head of a small number of good
ones, that wish for nothing so much as to fight him—but the wary old
fellow avoids an action doubtful of the behaviour of his army. People
must be of the profession to understand the disadvantages and difficulties
we labour under arising from the uncommon natural strength of the
country. I approve entirely of my father's disposition of his affairs tho
perhaps it may interfere a little with my plan of quitting the service which
I am determined to do the first opportunity. I mean so as not to be
absolutely distressed in circumstances nor burdensome to you nor any
body else.
I wish you much health and am
Dear Madam
Your obedient & Affectionate Son

Letter from Governor Cornwallis relating
the first steps in the founding of Halifax1
July ye 23d 1749.
My Lord
My last to Your Grace was of June 22nd a duplicate of which is inclosed
—the 27. The Transports appear'd off the harbour & in a few days most
of them got in—As their passage had been extremely good, & none of them
had in the least suffer'd, I found they would be ready to sail the moment
the Settlers should be put ashore. I dispatched a Sloop to Boston to
countermand the Order I had given & send to Mr Hopson to let him know,
I woud send in a few days, Transports to bring away his Garrison—Mr
Hopson had wrote me that he had agreed with Desherbier the French
Commissary to make use of the French transports, Upon condition that in
case the English Ships should arrive before they were all on Board he
shoud be at liberty to disembark them. I sent him one the 1st of July &
four more the largest of the Fleet the 5th—I own I was much disappointed
in finding Mr Hopson unprovided with transports as I never had the least
intimation that he was to wait for the Ships that shoud bring the Settlers—
I have an account from Boston of July 3rd that my second order got there
soon enough to prevent all but one from sailing, but as they were all hired
this will cause some expence they write me it will not be much.
July 8 I received from Mr Hopson Copys of letters from Governor
Shirley & Col. Mascarene giving an Account of the French having begun
a Settlement & a Fort at the mouth of St. John's River, As my Instructions
direct me to prevent all such Encroachments & particularly mention that
river as of the greatest consequence, I next day sent Capt Rous of the
Albany, with a small Sloop to attend him with Orders to the commanding
Officers at Annapolis to furnish him with troops if demanded. Copys of
my Letter to Capt Rous & of one to the Commander at St Johns I send
Your Grace inclosed. I hope what I have done in this Affair will meet
with Your Grace's approbation. July 12th I heard from Govr Shirley,
that he had sent the Boston to Annapolis to receive my Instructions about
this Affair of St Johns, I sent Capt. Pearse the same directions I had given
Capt Rous & Copy of the Declaration asserting His Majesty's Rights—
As to Port Mouton which is mention'd in these letters I believe it was a
mistake occasion'd by the French having put in there in their way to St.
Johns.
I shall now lay before Your Grace our Proceedings at Chebucto.
Col. Mascarene arrived here the 12th with five of the Council, next
day I open'd to them His Majesty's Commission & took the Oaths—
the day following I nominated the Members of a new Council.
Col. Mascarene Mr Benj. Green
Capt Howe Mr Salisbury
Capt Gorham Mr Davidson

As perhaps no Copys were taken of the Plans sent me of the Harbour
I send alongst with this a Copy of Durel's Plan. Your Grace will see that
the place I have fixed for the town is on the west side of the harbour, 'tis
upon the Side of a Hill which commands that whole Peninsula & shelters
the town from the North west Winds. From the Shore to the top of the
Hill is about half a mile the ascent very gentle, the Soil is good, there is
convenient landing for Boats all along the Beach & good anchorage within
Gunshot of the Shore for the largest Ships. In Durel's plan the two points
that make the Entrance to Bedford Bay are marked as the places proper to
fortify, which is likewise taken notice of by Mr Knowles. Their View
must then have been to have the Settlement within that Bay—This would
have been subject to great Inconveniencys. In the first place, it would
be too far up for the Fishermen, it being about five leagues from the
Entrance of the Harbour to these Points & the Beach all along as proper
for curing their Fish as can possibly be imagined. So that no Fisherman
wou'd ever have thought of going within these Forts. Indeed no Ship
woud chuse to go so far, as no finer Harbour can be than that of Chebucto
which reaches from these points to Sandwich River. So that notwithstanding of any forts upon these points, an Enemy's Fleet might ly secure
& indeed block up all Ships within the Bay—The proper places to fortify
for the defence of the Harbour seem to be Sandwich point & the Bank
opposite to it. Georges Island lies likewise very convenient for a Batterie
to defend both the Harbour & the town. It contains about ten or twelve
Acres. It was there I landed the Settlers from on Board the Ships sent to
Louisbourg—I have now a Guard there & Stores, & propose to build a
Magazin upon it for Powder.
As there was not one Yard of clear Ground Your Grace will imagine
our Difficulty & what work we have to do. However they have already
clear'd about twelve Acres, & I hope to begin my own House in two days,
I have a small Frame & planks ready.
The Indians are hitherto very peaceable many of them have been
here with some Chiefs; I made them small presents, told them I had
Instructions from His Majesty to offer them friendship & all protection
& likewise presents which I shoud deliver as soon as they should assemble
their tribes & return with powers to enter into Treaty & exchange their
French Commissions for others in His Majesty's Name.
Three of the French Deputys have been here to know what it is to
be their Condition for the future. I gave them copys of His Majesty's
Declaration & Copys of the Oath of Allegiance which I told them they
must take without any Condition or reservation but in the same manner
as His Majesty's English Subjects—they pretend their only difficulty is
from fear of the Indians in case of a French War—I have order'd all the
Deputys to come here & expect them in a few days—I think tis necessary
to shew them that 'tis in our power to master them or to protect them &
therefore I design to send as soon as possible Companys to Minas with
orders to build a Barrack & stay there the Winter; I shall also send an
armed Sloop into the Bay of Minas to prevent all Correspondence with
the French by Sea—Another Company I shall send to the Head of the Bay,
where the road to Minas begins.    I propose likewise a Blockhouse half REPORT FOR THE YEAR 1939 49
way for the conveniency of Travellers, & then to employ all the Men I
can get together Soldiers and Inhabitants to clear the Road from hence
to Minas, tis about 30 miles in a direct line. Whether this can be executed
before winter I cannot say. Had the Garrison of Louisbourg been arrived
they woud have been of Infinite Advantage. At present I have only one
Company of Hopsons, one of Warburtons & 60 of Gorham's Indians.
A List of the Civil Officers I shall be able to send Your Grace by the
next Shipps that sail, with an Account of what further progress we shall
have made

Letter from Governor Patterson
describing conditions in Prince Edward Island1
Charlotte Town 24th Octr 1770.
MvLord
I arrived here on the 30th of last August, since which time I have been
so much employed in finishing one of the houses built here, by order of
Mr Franklin, in such a manner as I hope will keep out a little of the
approaching cold: And in sending to different parts of the Continent for
Provisions to maintain my Family during the Winter; added to this
Communications to the different parts of the Island being very bad; I will
be able to furnish Your Lordship at present, with but a very imperfect
description of it.
So far as I have been able, under the above circumstances, to see of
the Island: the soil appears to be very good and easyly cultivated. It is
of redish colour, mixed with sand; and in most places free from Stones.
From this account of it Your Lordship, whom I know to be a perfect
Judge of Lands, will not believe it to be so good as it realy is, but I never
saw finer grass in my life, than grows every place where it is clear of woods.
It will produce every kind of grain and vegitables common in England,
with little or no trouble; and such as I have seen of the latter are much
better of their kinds than those at home, tho' raised in a very slovenly
manner.
e Edward Island Statt
, vol. I. pp. 151-6. 50 PUBLIC ARCHIVES
The woods on this part of the Island are of very little use except for
firing; and a great part of them not even good for that, they are principally,
Beech, Maple, black and white Birch, Spruce, and several other sorts of
small Firrs. In other parts of the Island there are some Oaks, and large
Pine trees in plenty.
The Bays and Rivers abound with wild Fowl, such as, gees, Brant,
Ducks &c as good of their kinds as any I ever met with, both in the Autumn
& Spring.
The Woods are prety well stocked with Partriges, and at some times of
the year with Pidgeons; On the sides of the Rivers and Marshes there are
Curlews, Snipes, and some other Birds of a smaller sort.
The Beasts are principally Bears, Foxes, Otters, wild cats of a very
large size, Hares, Martins, Squirrels, and Mice. The Bears in some parts
destroy the Sheep; and the Mice this year are so plenty, that they have in
mose cases destroyed the little grain which was attempted to be raised.
The Inhabitants say their appearing in such numbers is periodical, once in
every seven years.
My oppinion is, it depends entirely upon the Sort of Winter we have,
as I am informed the last was an uncommon one, the Snow falling before
the Frost came on, by which means the ground was kept soft, and the
Mice in place of being partly destroyed, by the Frost, as is commonly the
case; bred under the Snow; they are in size, something between our Mice
and Rats in England.
This side of the Island is but indifferently off for Fish, except in the
Spring, when I am told we may have a small kind of Cod, Mackrel, Trout,
Bass, Smelts, and several sorts of flat fish, prety plenty. At present there
are only Lobsters, and Oysters, neither very good.
The Climate since I have been here, has been very fine, not much
warmer than that of England, and so little rain that my Labourers have
been prevented working out of Doors by it, only three Days since my
arrival, and I expect we will have good weather untill near the latter end
of Novr.
The Winters, I am told, are so mild in the Woods, that the Inhabitants
during that Season make all the frames for their Houses, saw Boards, and
do almost all their Wood Work.
The French Inhabitants have for some years past been mostly maintained by a few British Subjects here, who have employed them during
the Summer in the Fishery, and have been paid their wages in cloaths,
Rum, Flower, Powder, and Shot, with the last articles they kill as many
Bears, Seals, and Wild fowls as serve them for meat; the Seal Oyl they
call their Butter and use it as such. By this means agriculture has been
so much neglected; there is not one Bushel of corn raised by all the French
Inhabitants on the Island.
There are a few British Families who have raised some; from whose
Accounts and from what I have seen myself, I form my oppinion of what
may be done: and I realy think this Island; if well nursed in its present
Infant State, may be made as usefull to Great Britain, and as plentyful
within itself as any Country of its size in North America: but to bring it REPORT FOR THE YEAR 1939
to that, we will require Your Lordships countenance;   and influ
procure some assistance for us, from our Mother Country.
There have arrived here this Summer, about one hundred and twenty
Families; part sent by Mr Montgomery, the Lord Advocate of Scotland,
the rest by a Mr Stewart of that Country; the last arrived about three
weeks agon at Prince Town, but very unfortunately, for want of a Pilot,
their Vessel ran on shore, at the entrance of the Harbour; and is entirely
lost, and part of her Cargo, but no lives.
I have been obliged to give Mr Duport our Chief Justice, leave to
return to Hallifax for this Winter; as he had neglected to lay in Provisions
for himself and Family during the Summer: they must otherwise have
been starved.
I am in daily expectations of a Ship from London, with Passengers,
and one from Ireland with Mr Desbrisay and Family; tho' I dread the
consequences if they do, as there is not a house for to put their Heads
into, and if they do not bring Provisions to serve them untill next June,
they must absolutely starve, for there is not one loaf of Bread, nor Flower
to make one, to be bought, on the Island.
I have the honor to be with the greatest respect
My Lord

the choice and naming of a site as the capital of New Brunswick1
Parr Town, New Brunswick,
25th of April 1785.
My Lord,
I have the honor to inform Your Lordship that having, in the course
of last winter, visited the principal Settlements forming on St. John's
River, I have fixed on St. Ann's point, about Seventy-five miles from the
mouth of the River, as a Station well situated for the future Seat of the
' Provincial Government. It has the advantage of being nearly in the centre
of the Province, and within a few miles of that part beyond which the
River ceases to be navigable for Vessels of any considerable size. Here the
foundations are preparing for the Metropolis of New Brunswick, to which,
as a mark of respect to His Royal Highness the Duke of York, I have given
the name of Fredericstown, which I hope may meet with His Majesty's I
Approbation.
I have the Honor to be, My Lord,

Letter from J. Quesnel to J. M. Lamothe describing the
discovery of the Fraser River1
(Translation)
New Caledonia, May 1, 1809
Dear Friend
I have received your letter of the 1st of October of last year and have
been pleased to learn that your health had always been good; that it may
always remain to you is the wish that I make with all my heart! I congratulate you, my dear friend, on the pleasure that you have at Montreal,
and you do well to profit by it as far as it is in your power. As for me,
I shall perhaps be a long time without being able to have the same pleasure,
my interests forcing me to remain a long time in the North, since I have
done so much to come here, and in spite of the little hope that there is for
the young people at present in this Country here, I have made up my
mind to continue till the end the career that I have had the misfortune to
embark on unless it shall be to the prejudice of my health, without which
it is impossible for me to be happy—Then I will willingly sacrifice my
interests to preserve my health—there are places in the North, which, in
spite of the unpleasantness attached to the country in general, it is nevertheless possible some times to pass the time agreeably, but in this one there
is nothing to have but misery and boredom. Far away from everyone,
we have not even the pleasure of knowing the news from other places.
We live entirely on salmon dried in the sun by the Indians which is also
their only livelihood, for of animals there are none, and we should go often
without shoes, if we did not procure leather from the Peace River, and to
crown everything, we do not make any good returns for there are few
beavers, and the Indians used to living on salmon are too lazy to work as
those of all other places do, so you can judge without me telling you more
whether my situation is pleasant, but I should still not see the misery of
fatigue or even of poor nourishment, if the salmon with the bad quality of
having a very bad taste, had not also that of turning the health, for the
most robust men who have been 3 years in this country are already scarcely
capable of doing their duty, and though I am of excellent constitution I
have already noticed that my health is declining; that's enough on that
subject—I must inform you now that I have been on an exploration this
summer with Messrs. Simon Fraser and John Stuart whom I believe you
know, we were accompanied by 12 men and in three canoes went down
that river which up to the present passed for the Columbia, but very
quickly finding the river innavigable we left our canoes and continued our
journey on foot, among the most frightful mountains, which we should
never have traversed if the Natives by whom we were well received had
not helped us. After having passed all these bad places not without much
misery as you may think, we found the river once again navigable and all
embarked in wooden canoes and continued our route with more ease, to
the outlet of this river into the Pacific Ocean, arriving there, as we were
disposed to go further the Indians of these places who are very numerous
made opposition to our passage, and it was the greatest fortune in the
l Public Archives of Canada.   Canada Miscellaneous. 58
PUBLIC ARCHIVES
world that we retired from this bad place, without being obliged to kill -
and to be killed ourselves. We were well received by all the other Indians
in returning and arrived all in perfect health in our New Caledonia. The
outlet of this river is in latitude 49° nearly three degrees to the North of
the true Columbia. This voyage has not met the wishes of the company,
and will never be of any advantage to them, this river not being navigable,
but the end for which we undertook this voyage we have accomplished,
so we have no reproach to make to ourselves—I am at the end of my
papers, so I conclude and am your sincere friend,
