Seller ID: 2404
Peterborough: Peterborough Historical Society, 1994. Occasional Paper 14, first edition (25 pp.). Octavo, stiff wraps, illustrated with photo’s and sketches. Frances Browne Stewart’s letters to her family in Ireland, whence she and her husband Thomas A. Stewart emigrated to settle in the Canadian bush north of Peterborough, and later to family and friends in Canada are a vivid record of the struggles of the first Europeans to settle the area. A familiar of the Stricklands-- C. P. Traill, Susanna Moodie, and Samuel Strickland, Frances’ letters tell the story of those who stuck it out and came through. A fine, clean copy.
