…with reports of directors regarding situation, soil, climate, &c, &c., and a statement of conditions concerning free houses, free grants of land, and assisted passages, an online book at Archive.org website (26 pages). The author, Captain William Brown, worked for the Anchor Steamship Line which transported the Scotch colonists to New Brunswick in 1873. Captain Brown was instrumental in the founding New Kincardineshire, now known as the Scotch Colony. This document is a very interesting if overly-rosy snapshot of life in the Perth-Andover area just before the founding of the colony. I would describe it as a sales brochure.
