Excerpt from The History of Newfoundland: From the Earliest Times to the Year 1860

My Council readily agree with me in giving you access to the Records, which I believe will furnish you with the materials of the history which you propose to write. Con taining as they do many thousand pages, I have only been able to take a cursory glance at them, but this has been quite sufficient to convince me of their value, and that they will throw much light on the early history of this ancient possession of the Crown, as they Show what Newfoundland was a century ago and even later, when it was recognised as a fishery only and not a colony when the planters were ruled over by unscrupulous men called Fishing Admirals, these being under the control of the West of England merchants, whose influence was all powerful with the Boards of Trade and Plantations - when penal laws existed and were sharply enforced in this colony - laws which happily no longer disgrace our Statute Book.
