CAPTAIN MILLER'S REPORT: THE EXTRACT ABOUT PINWEIR (PINWARE) ONLY.
COLONIAL OFFICE RECORD 197 / 59. JOURNAL OF THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. NEWFOUNDLAND. Appendix.
Sydney, Cape Breton,
18th July, 1873
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,
Captain and Senior Officer.
Vice-Admiral E. G. Fanshawe, C.B.,
