Conservative (1867-1942)


Yes, and we have a copy of it on our file. That is the statement of Mr. Stewart in regard to the matter. It does not make any difference. The message was not delivered until the 27th, and on that date Mr. Richard had been buried for some days, and it was impossible to send his body down to Nova Scotia for interment. The message was received by the captain of the Canada only on the 27th. Mrs. Richard tried to communicate at an earlier date, but unfortunately the message was not delivered by any one whatever to Mr. Stewart or any one in the department. The Canada was at sea, and the message could not be delivered until she came into port.
