CAPTAIN MILLER'S REPORT: THE EXTRACT ABOUT PINWEIR (PINWARE) ONLY.

COLONIAL OFFICE RECORD 197 / 59. JOURNAL OF THE LEGISLATIVE       COUNCIL. NEWFOUNDLAND.   Appendix.

H.M.S. “Sirius,”                   
Sydney, Cape Breton,    
18th July, 1873
SIR,


PINWEIR.

      No fish yet (cod); good haul of salmon in the river, which for about 11 or 12 miles from the mouth is of some size and depth; many nets set, all according to law. Mr. Ellworthy, who fishes the mouth, says he never knew them to take a fly; the river above what I have stated, is strong and shallow for the most part. A Government school is kept by Mr. Odell; no doctor; occasional visits by a clergyman. Mr. Ellworthy grew some good potatoes.

I have the honour to be, Sir,                               
Your most obedient servant,              
D. MILLER,                          
Captain and Senior Officer.
Vice-Admiral E. G. Fanshawe, C.B.,
    Commander-in-Chief.
