Government House, Montreal, to which I have walked through such a snow~storm that it was impossible for any four - footed animal to move, and I do not believe any biped except myself and my two companions have attempted it.
April l0th - We are now in a state of transition, passing from winter to summer, and suffering sundry discomforts. The roads are in such a state that they are with difficulty passable either in sleighs or on wheels. I do not know how a less active and walking Governor could have got on since I have been here, the road between this and Montreal has been so frequently out of order. My feat in walking into town the day the last English mail was despatched has been greatly commended. Snow however is not the only obstacle on the route, for we have no police, and a most daring set of villains infest it, who have been robbing everybody they met with for some time past. My appointment of Major Campbell has given universal satisfaction. The first appointment in Canada, say the news papers, which has pleased all parties.
