The page below was added as a result
of an over sight on my part as I'd obviously completed a book about
Joseph Howe but had not prepared the page for you to access it which
has now been fixed. That said I thought I'd better check that all
the other pages were ok and they are but I have also added a 2
volume pdf book on the Memoirs of
John A MacDonald. This is partly because as you read the
Preface to his book you'll see they recommended this set for
Joseph Howe by Hon. J. W. Longley (1909).
