It needed something like genius to plan and carry through so great an enterprise; it needed above all faith and courage in the face of many and great difficulties. You have achieved a great task."—George AI. Wrong, Professor of History, University of Toronto.

" It must be a source of much satisfaction to know that the scholars of both hemispheres have commended your undertaking, which has itself contributed in a signal way to the making of Canada. To have united the leading minds of both sections of the Dominion in so illuminating a service is a triumph, in the celebration of which it is an honour to be asked to share."—John Reade, F.R.C.S., Literary Editor, Montreal Gazette.

Struthers, Editor Canadian Life and Resources, ?Montreal.

"I may say that no books on Canadian history, with the possible exception of Parkman (whose volumes cover only the early period), have ever exercised for me such a continued and fascinating interest."—J. II, Woods, Editor and Managing Director, The Herald, Calgary.
