… the shores (of Nova Scotia)are everywhere indented with harbours, rivers, coves and bays, in most places communicating with the waters of the interior of the Country, scarcely any part of which is thirty miles distant from navigation…

…The great inequality in the surface of Nova-Scotia is the cause of the existence of numerous lakes, which are scattered in every direction. Some of them are of very great extent, and in many places form almost a continued chain of water communication across the province….From the head of the Shubenacadie river they almost reach the harbor of Halifax, and afford such an extensive inland navigation, that a company has been formed to complete the junction by means of a canal. Between Windsor and the Atlantic, there is a similar connection in two different places- one between the St. Croix and Margaret’s Bay, and the other between the head of the Avon and Chester Bay…
