Winslow Papers - Edited by Rev. W.O. Raymond - pgs. 497-498

Transcription of the Winslow Papers in 1901. The referenced pages include Rev. Walter Price's letter on the Parish of St. Mary's, York. Co. The original also contained in his profile.

Notable excerpts are that the population of the parish was 903 people, predominantly children, with 2,302 acres of land having been cleared for cultivation.

The letter references Heron Lake and Lake Carleton with the latter being of no consequence at the time due to its inland situation. The remainder of the article references resources and potential areas for developing cultivation that have not been undertaking due to "... the necessity the settlers are under of first attending to the provisions of Life and the want of surplus labor beyond this object, or the ignorance of the settlers in the culture & manufacture of it."

The Rev. Walter Price also states that introducing "Africans" to this climate will I doubt be found ineffectual."
