Andrew Hicks speech

  • ON00009 F 4506
  • Item
  • 1923

Fonds consists of two items prepared by Andrew Hicks, MPP for Huron South and member of the United Farmers of Ontario party, in 1923: a 21 page manuscript; and an incomplete typed transcription (5 pages) of a speech.

The speech summarizes Hicks' views of the United Farmers of Ontario's position in government and condemns his own party leader, Premier Ernest C. Drury, for trying to amalgamate the U.F.O. Party with part of the Liberal Party.

Hicks delivered the speech in the Ontario Legislature on April 11, 1923. The following day Premier Drury called a general election for June 25, 1923 where the U.F.O Party was defeated by the Conservative Party. Andrew Hicks lost the nomination as the U.F.O candidate for the South Huron riding and therefore did not run.

Both the handwritten speech and typed pages are on official Legislative Assembly paper. The typed pages correspond to but are not identical to the handwritten draft.

John Hunter diary

  • ON00009 F 4427
  • Item
  • 1887-1895

item is the daily diary of John Hunter, a carpenter in Williamsburgh, Ontario, in the nineteenth century.

Hunter's diary contains daily one line entries commenting on the weather, or the nature of the day's work. Additional information may include where or for whom he was working. The work was mostly carpentry, and he comments on going to mills for planks or lumber, lathing, or working on porches or furniture, and laying floors. But Hunter appears to be a jack-of-all-trades, and other entries refer to the following: shingling; painting; working on outside of house; building skiff keel; glazing windows; and boat building.

Though little is known about Hunter, the diary reveals that he worked in the Williamsburgh and Morrisburg area of Dundas County. He enjoyed skating in the winter, and was religious, spending many of his Sundays going to church services (both Lutheran and Presbyterian are mentioned) or for a 'preaching'.
