The Revolt of French Canada, 1800-1835: A Chapter of the History of the British Commonwealth

By Helen Taft Manning | Go to book overview

Notes

INTRODUCTION
P. xiv PAC, Papineau Papers, Miscellaneous. In this collection there is an announcement
of a meeting of the "'Friends of Ireland'" in Three Rivers, called
in January 1829 by Charles Mondelet of Montreal. The example of the societies
in Quebec and Montreal is cited. The appeal is based on the martyrdom of the
Irish people because of their loyalty to the Catholic Church.
P. xvThe original estimates for the Rideau Canal were modest enough but bore
little relation to the final cost. In 1833 when the Whigs were reproached for
continuing an enterprise which the radicals labelled as a 'jobb' of the Tory
government, the total had already reached six million pounds. The cost of the
new citadel in Quebec was seven million pounds. ( Mirror of Parliament for
833
, p. 4037.)
P. xviBoth of Palmerston's letters are in the Russell Papers, (PRO 30: 22 Box
3). They are dated 20 October and 25 October, 1839.
Ministerial feeling on this point seems to have changed in the second half
of the nineteenth century when rivalry in overseas enterprises and in South
America was no longer important. For a discussion of the growing feeling that
England no longer wanted the complications of Canadian defence against the
United States, see Cambridge History of the British Empire, II, 752. ( Cambridge,
1940.)
P. xvii PAC Report 1923 ( Durham Papers) p. 253, "'Memorandum of Lord
Glenelg for the Cabinet.'"
See Mason Wade, The French Canadians, Chapter III ( Toronto, 1955).
P. xviiiFor the correspondence between Peel and Stanley in 1842, excerpts of
which are printed in Charles Parker, Sir Robert Peel, III ( London 1899), see
Peel Papers in the British Museum (Add. MS. 40467).

CHAPTER I
P. 3 PAC, Cochran Papers, Letter of Andrew Cochran to his father 13 May,
1812. This collection comprises Cochran's letters to his family in Nova Scotia
where his father was acting head of King's College, Windsor. The letters run
from 1812 to 1818 in a fairly continuous series. Many of Cochran's letters, of
interest politically, are in the Dalhousie Papers, copies of which are also in the
Canadian Archives. Cochran served as civil secretary to Sir John Sherbrooke
and also to Lord Dalhousie. He died of cholera in one of the epidemics in the
forties.
P. 4Ibid., Cochran to his father, 10 October, 1812, from Montreal.
P. 5Ibid., Cochran to his sister, Maria, 16 September, 1812. 'The great
minister' was Spencer Perceval, assassinated in 1812. The estate in question, to
which Perceval gave the name of Spencer Wood, is now the residence of the
Lieutenant-Governor of Quebec. Perceval married a wealthy woman, daughter
of a former Lord Mayor of London, but he increased his own returns from his
office by every device he could invent. In the end he found himself in difficulties
not only with the assembly but with the British merchants in the province.
P. 6 Lord Selkirk's Diary, ed. C. T. White, Champlain Society Publication, No.
35 ( Toronto, 1958) p. 220.
