Carbonear's 'unfeigned congratulations'


A daily taste of Newfoundlandia

“We, the inhabitants of the Town of Carbonear, in the District of Conception Bay, beg to offer to your Excellency our unfeigned congratulations on your safe arrival to these shores, as well as to express the high satisfaction we feel in the wisdom of our most Gracious Sovereign in the selection of a man so conversant with Colonial policy as your Excellency to be our Governor, and we sincerely pray that the political differences now existing in Newfoundland may speedily vanish before your Excellency's administration.—Presented to His Excellency Major-General Sir John Harvey.

The Star and Newfoundland Advocate, St. John’s, Sept. 25th, 1841.
