Autumn/Automne 1979. Pp 95-103. A letter to W.S. Fielding. "With the fisheries in disarray, the railway verging on bankruptcy, and the public debt unmanageable, Newfoundland's ship of state in 1921 appeared foundering and about to sink. That, at least, was the opinion of William Smith (1859-1932), historian and Deputy Keeper of Public Records in the Canadian Public Archives. Smith, who spent two months in St.John's in the spring of 1921 collecting material on the Labrador boundary dispute, concluded that, with the crisis imminent, it was only a matter of time before Newfoundlanders put aside their historic prejudice and sought relief in Confederation." - p.95.
