Copy of letter from John James Fraser, provincial secretary, Fredericton, N.B., to the Hon. Wm. B. Vail, provincial secretary, Halifax, N.S. – 2 October 1872. – 2 pp. of textual records. Fraser states that the government of New Brunswick has received the $10,000 promised by the Dominion Government in aid of immigration. He outlines New Brunswick’s efforts to attract immigrants over the past year and states that the government desires “to forward Colonization” rather than to simply supply the labour market, “though the practical result so far of this year’s operations has been to furnish some hundred to our labour market and but few to our Colonization locations”. RS13-A12 Provincial Secretary letter book, 1868-1878, pp. 291-292, PANB.
