From the Preface of the book:

“Between them, the Library and Archives Canada (LAC) and the and the Bibliothèque et Archives
nationales du Québec (BAnQ) hold a large collection of documents relating to the Neilson
family of Quebec. While it mostly comprises the business and political papers of John Neilson
(1775-1848), a native of Galloway who emigrated to Quebec in 1791 and rose to become one
of its most prominent public figures, it also contains a number of personal documents, including
over 250 letters relating to Scotland.”
