172 STEWART, Walter True Blue : The Loyalist Legend. First Edition in dustjacket

STEWART, Walter. True Blue : The Loyalist Legend. Toronto : Collins, (1985). First Edition. Pp (10),[1]-275,(3). Map. 8vo, blue cloth, silver lettering to spine. Walter Douglas Stewart (b. April 19, 1931, Toronto d. September 15, 2004, Sturgeon Point, Kawartha Lakes, Ontario) Canadian journalist and author. "The coming of the Loyalists was the pivotal event in Canadian history -- the end of childhood, the commencement of building a nation. It was the equivalent of the Norman Invasion of England in 1066, but even more potent, because in much of the country, the invaders were in the majority. Today some 3.5 million Canadians are descendents of the original Loyalists.In 'True Blue', Walter Stewart challenges the traditional vision, absorbed in history classes, of Loyalists as tea-drinking, God-fearing, king-suppor ting, tree-hacking pioneers. While Stewart does introduce Loyalists who, inpart, fit that vision, you will also meet far more who do not: Loyalists w ho were rogues, thieves, snobs, savages, slaves, proud warriors and pompousasses, as well as Loyalists who would not have known King George if they h ad met him at a garden party." - from the dust jacket.

(10),[xi]-xviii,(8),[5]-583,(3). 8vo, navy blue cloth with gilt lettering to spine. History Series, number 34. "The politics of eighteenth-century Britain were deeply affected by the ability of Governments to raise loans through the monied interest in the City of London, and later by the territorial responsibilities of the East India Company. City and Company politics rantheir own course, often in reaction to Westminster. Dame Lucy Sutherland w as a profound student of all three, combining in rare degree the skills of the economic historian and the technique evolved by Sir Lewis Namier for the analysis of politics. Much of her work appeared in articles, of which 'Politics and Finance in the Eighteenth Century' is a comprehensive collection, omitting only pieces primarily devoted to the publication of documents. They constitute an unusually coherent series, remarkable for maturity of judgement and for originality in showing the mutual influence of business and politics. Dame Lucy examines particulra figures and their financial and political fortunes, and the internal politics of India House and their implications for Parliament. She sheds new light on the celebrated Nandakuma trialand on controversial features of the career of Warren Hastings and, by her pioneer work on city politics and city radicalism, puts the careers of the elder Pitt and Edmund Burke in a new perspective. Finally this collectin i ncludes some of the fruits of Dame Lucy's last years when she was editing the eighteenth-century volume of the 'History of the University of Oxford'."- from the dustjacket.

The outer entrance of the harbor (3/4 mile wide) is between King Head and Merigomish Point, the latter being the west extreme of Merigomish Island. The bar is formed by rocky shoals running out from these points of entrance 3/4 mile to the northward. The channel over the bar, and leading in from it between the shoals, is more than 200 yards wide ; but the shoals are so steep that the lead affords little guidance, and there are noleading marks. The course running in is at first to the southward, and the n by a sharp turn to the eastward close past Savage Point (the sandy spit at the SW. extreme of Merigomish Island) into the harbor. This inner entrance of the harbor, between Savage Point and the east end of Olding Island, isabout 1/4 mile wide, but the navigable breadth is reduced to 100 yards by the shoal off Olding Island, and the tides frequently run there at the rateof 5 miles an hour. This harbor is seldom visited by anything larger than a coasting schooner. The pilots are therefore incompetent from want of practice and the channel is no longer buoyed as it used to be formerly. The harbor is of great extent, running in 5 or 6 miles to the eastward, within Merigomish Island and the sandbar which joins it to the mainland, and also 4 miles to the westward, up a bay full of islands, coves and precipitous headlands. Several small streams enter the harbor, of which French River, opposite the east end of Olding Island, is the principal. It is approached by a very narrow channel, through flats of mud and weeds, and can be ascended by boats to the bridge, about a mile.

Thin seams of coal may be seen at Coal Point, where the cliffs, which form the northern shore of the island, are 35 feet high. Its southern shore is broken into coves, cliffyislets, and peninsulated points similarly to the western part of the harbo r A sandbar 2 1/2 miles long unites the island to the mainland to the eastward, excepting in unusually high tides, when the water washes over one partof it into the harbor.
