Description

Excerpt from The Canada Directory, 1851: Containing the Names of the Professional and Business Men of Every Description, in the Cities, Towns and Principal Villages of Canada When the Directory was projected, it was intended that Villages having a population of less than from four to five hundred, should not be included in its pages, and it was supposed that returns from two hundred and fifty to three hundred places, at most, would be given. It will be observed that this resolution has not been adhered to, as it was found that many places having a less population than that designated, were growing so rapidly, that previous to another edition of the work being issued, they would probably exceed the intended limits, and the consequence of this extension of the original plan is, that returns from over five hundred and fifty different localities are embodied in the present volume. Some of the agents employed in receiving orders, inadvertently received advertisements for insertion, which, from their nature, were deemed inadmissible, and consequently do not appear. Other advertisements received, were ordered to appear on certain designa ted pages, and these also are declined, as the plan of the Directory is an alphabetical arrangement, either by names or businesses, which is the only fair and equal one for all concerned. A few also sent advertisements, the extent of which so greatly exceeded the limited space which was ordered, that no alternative but rejecting them altogether seemed possi ble.
