EXTRACT FROM “ THE STORY OF NEWFOUNDLAND.”

BY THE RIGHT HONOURABLE THE LORD BIRKENHEAD, LORD HIGH CHANCELLOR OF GREAT BRITAIN. [LONDON, 1920.]



The author describes the situation and character of the Island of Newfoundland, and then says :—

“ Its dependency, Labrador, an undefined strip of maritime territory, extends from Cape Chidley, where the Hudson's Straits begin in the north, to Blanc Sablon in the south, and includes the most easterly point of the mainland. The boundaries between Quebec and Labrador have been a matter of keen dispute. The inhabitants are for the most part Eskimos, engaged in fishing and hunting. There are no towns, but there are a few Moravian mission stations.”
