Reminiscences free pdf Excerpt from Reminiscences I have been asked to write a short preface to the volume of Reminiscences of Sir Richard Cartwright. It is impossible to refuse the request, and probably I knew him more intimately than any other person- but could there have been secured any other of his acquaintance who had a personal knowledge of the old political controversies in the Province of Canada this preface would have been more interesting to the reader who wishes to be informed as to the questions that stirred the people of the old Province just previous to Confederation. My acquaintance with Sir Richard Cartwright began in 1870. I had arrived in Canada in the summer of 1869, and, being a stranger and utterly uninformed as to the public business in Canada, I felt some curiosity about the young man just at the outset of his political career who preferred principle to party and who, with another member of the party, had just gravitated to the cross-benches. Frankly, I did not then understand the question involved, but it seemed odd that a young man of culture and wealth, a member of one of the historic families of Canada, of Conservative instincts, should stand aloof from his old associates, and from such a leader as Sir John A. Macdonald. To my mind it seemed there was nothing to be got by it, and, moreover, that a promising career would likely be shattered. In 1860 there was nothing to indicate but that Sir John A. Macdonald might be the leader in Canada for very many years. From 1870 to 1873 my acquaintance with Sir Richard Cartright was a club acquaintance for the short time each year that Parliament sat in Ottawa.
