Excerpt from Thomas Chandler Haliburton ("Sam Slick"): A Study in Provincial Toryism
Of Canadiana in the library Of my alma mater, Acadia College, Wolfville, N. S., granted me by former President G. B. Cutten and the librarian, Mrs. Mary K. Ingraham, most Of my plans for research would have been brought to an abrupt and fruitless termination. Judge J. A. Chisholm, G. E. E. Nichols, Esq, and Mrs. Harry Piers, of Halifax, N. S., and Mrs. Laura Haliburton Moore, of Wolfville, have allowed me to make transcriptions from their invaluable. Possessions of manuscript material. Miss Annie F. Donohoe of the Legislative Library, Halifax, has courteously inducted me into the mys teries of the cataloguing'and Shelving of the special treas ures entrusted to her keeping. The editors Of the Hali fax Acadian Recorder have admitted me to the rare and unusual privilege Of being suffered to consult the complete early files of their unique newspaper. And R. L. Reid, Esq., K. C., of Vancouver, B. C., has been most generous in giving me access to his excellent private library of Canadian literature.
