Besides the two noble
volumes, Speeches and Public Letters of Joseph Howe, edited by Joseph
Andrew Chisholm, K. C. (Halifax, 1909), the reader should consult the
biography of Howe by Mr Justice Longley in the ‘Makers of Canada’
series, and the account of Nova Scotian history by Professor Archibald
MacMechan in Canada and its Provinces, vol. xiii. See also Recollections
of Sixty Years In Canada by Sir Charles Tupper (London, 1914); and, in
this Series, The Winning of Popular Government and The Railway Builders.
For an intimate study of life in Nova Scotia there are no books equal to
the works of Thomas Chandler Haliburton.
