p.2 Canadian Timber - The Port Hope Guide says:- Yesterday, we observed, on board the Western Miller, lying at the wharf in this town, three enormous logs on their way to the "Great Exposition" in Paris. The two largest, one five in diameter and the other four feet nine inches, were of white wood, and the other of oak about four feet four inches in diameter. There was also a white wood plank about two inches thick and four feet wide - beautifully clear stuff - destined for the same place. We understand the timber was cut near Chatham.
