FN2 Ch42 It was not simply a case of American fishermen versus Nova Scotian fishermen. Nova Scotia was full of people who had families which fled the United States at the end of the American Revolution: "Loyalists." "In the realm of foreign policy the United States was constantly attacked by the Halifax press throughout the period 1827-40. The United States was felt to be an aggressive and expansionist power." (R. H. McDonald, "Nova Scotia Newspapers View the United States 1827-1840," NSHQ, #6:1, p. 9.)

(The Dalhousie Journals, 1817 entry, Vol. 1, p. 73.)

Boards for boxes prepared or fitted for use and packed in the same way bear the same name"

Masters (Toronto: McClelland & Stewart, 1963) should be consulted as it is represented to be a standard work on the subject.
