p.3 The Committee on canals have recommended the construction of a ship canal to connect the head of the Bay of Quinte with Lake Ontario through Wellers Bay. Mr. Baird estimates that £43,000 would construct a canal, and the Committee recommended this sum to be granted for that purpose, a fourth part to be expended annually.


The undersigned having made large additions to his Wharves and Stores, will be prepared, on the opening of the navigation, to receive and forward to Montreal or Quebec all kinds of produce, and make liberal advances on the same. He will always have a responsible person in attendance at his Store on the wharf to receive all packages from Steam Boats, etc. and shall be accountable for the same.

Property on commission from Lower Canada shall meet with prompt attention; and all compromise of the interest of those who may favor him with a share of their business shall be carefully avoided.

N.B. Steam Boats supplied with Wood on liberal terms.


Kingston, 29th March, 1836.
