Assisting The Hon. Malcolm Cameron

I was told that our friend, Mr. McDonald, had remained much longer in Goderich than was prudent at this season of the year. But there was an election in the County of Huron going on at the time and so anxious was he to assist his friend, the Hon. Malcolm Cameron, in his election that he had neglected to return in proper season, and thus it ended with such serious results to so many, for all were concerned, for there was no way of getting any more supplies during the winter but by packing it across by the trail through the woods from Owen Sound, and this, at that time, would have been a hopeless job, for, owing to the deep fall of snow, there had been no communication with Owen Sound for some weeks.
