Excursion around the bay


A daily taste of Newfoundlandia

“Her Majesty’s ship Eurydice anchored on Saturday night about 12 o’clock, having on board His Excellency the Governor and his suite, last from the Straits of Belle Isle. During three weeks excursion, His Excellency has visited not only the ports of Ferryland, Burin, Great St. Lawrence, Lamaline and the French Islands on the Western, or what is sometimes called the French shore, and several Ports in the Straits of Belle Isle.”

The Star and Newfoundland Advocate, St. John’s, September 1844.
