Scope and content

Fonds consists of a manuscript volume, entitled "The Emigrant, or Life In Canada," compiled and illustrated by A.T.

Included in the volume are descriptions of: the author’s sea passage; points along the St. Lawrence; Toronto; aspects of Canadian life; Upper Canada’s flora and fauna; methods of house construction; and sites visited, including Mono Mills, Niagara Falls, Hamilton, and Norwichville. The volume is hand printed and contains sketches reproducing various aspects of the journey to Toronto and of scenes in Upper Canada. A list of illustrations is found at the beginning of the volume, as well as a table of contents which provides a summary of the subject matter of each chapter.
