EXTRACT   FROM  “ LABRADOR,”

BY  WILLIAM  B. CABOT (BOSTON, 1920), p. 81.



“ The Spracklins had fish ; namely, cod.  Nothing is fish to a Newfoundlander but cod—cod alone.  Salmon are salmon, trout are trout, the same with herring, caplin, and the rest ;  but to him cod only is Fish.  He may go fishing for any of these, for almost anything that swims, for to him life is fishing, but he would hardly use the word unqualified of anything but cod.”


[1927lab]
