No. 21.

DEPUTY MINISTER OF LANDS, QUEBEC, TO GRAND RIVER PULP AND LUMBER COMPANY.


Quebec,              
December 5th, 1902.  
Mr. ALFRED DICKIE,
     President of the Grand River
          Pulp and Lumber Co.,
              Lower Stewiacke,
       County of Colchester, N.S.


SIR,
        Referring to an article published by the "Canada Lumberman" of November 26, in regard to certain lumbering operations contemplated by your Company in the Hamilton River region, I beg to call your attention to the fact that all the territory south of River Hamilton belongs to the Province of Quebec, and that the right to cut timber thereon can be acquired from this Government only, under our Laws and Regulations.
        Any timber cut upon said territory without a license from this Department should therefore be considered as cut in violation of the Law and dealt with accordingly.

I have, etc.,                            
(Sgd)    J. E. TACHE,                
Deputy Minister of Lands,         
Mines and Fisheries, Quebec.
