LETTER FROM OF A.M.I. DURNFORD II

Bear Creek, Coldwater
November 1st, 1840

Sir:
I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 9th October, and I hope I may be allowed to say that, unknown to the Government of this Province, except as an officer that has faithfully served their majesties upwards of 21 years previous to my arriving in this province, it is not at all extraordinary that the qualifications of Mr. Telford should appear to exceed mine.  But I thrust had it been the pleasure of His excellency the Governor-General to have confided the superintendence of the settlement and road at Owens Sound to me, he would have had no just cause of complaint.  As I was employed by Lord Charles Somerset in constructing and repairing a part of the road between Wynburg and Cape Town at the Cape of Good Hope in the year 1818 and his Excellency was pleased to signify my commanding officer this entire approbation at the manner it had been executed.  I have since had ample opportunities of observing the construction of the different roads in England and Wales.  And some of the piers and harbours along the coasts which together with the kindness of Col. Paisley of the Royal Engineers who allowed me full access to the valuable plans, models and library in the Engineers department when I was quartered with my reg't at Chatham in 1832 ..unreadable.. have enabled me to give due satisfaction in the construction of the road.  And as I have lived nearly seven years in the interior of this province accustomed to the hardships and privations of a first settler in these woods, I believe I would have pointed out to any new settler all he ought to know.  I have been induced to make these remarks, not with the view of boasting of any superior qualifications, but to show that the very kind considerations which induced His Excellency Sir George Arthur to wish to further interests of an old officer were not leading him to repose confidence where it would have been altogether misplaced.  I at the same time beg leave to assure you I saw clearly the position in which you were placed with regard to the appointment.  And I rest fully assured of the kind intentions of His Excellency, Sir George Arthur, and yourself - Altho' I must say until I had the pleasure of receiving your letter, I viewed the loss of the situation at Owens Sound as a disappointment.

LETTER FROM AUGUSTA DURNFORD TO HER MOTHER-IN-LAW, JANE DURNFORD,
UPON THE DEATH OF HER FATHER-IN-LAW, ELIAS WALKER DURNFORD IN 1850

The great affliction with which it has pleased the Lord to try you and your family has been a great and sudden shock to us all in this country. Philip has felt most severely the loss of his revered parent whom to know was to love. "Blessed are the dead that die in the Lord' and be praised to be the Lord for the comforting assurance of his holy revelations, that the separation from those we love, by a mortal death is but short and temporary. The affecting and interesting details of the last moments of our dear father towards whom I had an affection and veneration not inferior to what I felt for my own parent. I trust it will be profitable to us, that when our time shall come, we too may die the death of the righteous.
