The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 76



Arriving at Montreal on the 7th October, I waited upon his Worship the Mayor, and visited several manufacturers, brokers, and shippers. I also met a large number of the leading business-men at the Board of Trade, and discussed with them the general prospects of commerce with New Zealand.

Many manufacturers expressed a wish to ship their goods to New Zealand. With this object in view I supplied the names of the principal importers of their respective manufactures throughout the colony. I was assured that Canada was able to compete with other manufacturing countries in the supply of cotton goods, boots and shoes, all classes of printing paper, office furniture, agricultural implements, lumber of all kinds, doors, sashes, &c.; while from British Columbia canned and frozen salmon would form an increasing export to this colony.
