"[Edward] Winslow was sent to Nova Scotia to overse the disbanding of Loyalist regiments in that area after the war was over. His papers shed much light on the settlement of the province of New Brunswick. The problems of establishing new communities in that area by transplanted Loyalists is covered in great detail. From these records, moreover, one can trace the subsequent careers of certain Tory families.

Winslow himself had a distinguished career in the post-war period. He was appointed Military Secretary to the Commander-in-Chief of the Forces in Nova Scotia. To a large degree, he was instrumental in promoting the division of the old Province of Nova Scotia. He was appointed a member of His Majesty's Council for the Province, held the offices of Surrogate and Surveyor of the King's Woods for New Brunswick, and served as presiding Justice of the Court of Common Pleas for the county of York. His papers portray the leading incidents in the early social and political history of the Province of New Brunswick, covering the period down to the close of the War of 1812." - from Billias's introduction.
