"Joseph Howe was a journalist, printer and publisher. These eighty-odd letters to his wife provide a fascinating look at the social life in Nova Scotia during the early 1800s. In publishing a newspaper out of Halifax [the Novascotian], Howe travelled by foot, horseback and boat to collect subscriptions and promote his publication. He was plagued by financial difficulties and altercations with politicians and bureaucrats. These letters, which were all written to his wife, are insightful, amusing and historic." from rear cover.
