Seven Years
by Victor Lovitt Oakes Chittick

… In all Haliburton spent seven years of conscientious and patient research among the scattered memorials of his country’s history, and in compiling statistical returns and other data respecting its population, industries and commerce, and its still to be developed resources…
…Practically every historical or descriptive account of the province [of Nova Scotia] written since Haliburton’s time has been based in part, either directly or indirectly upon his work.
