Name of creator
W. Smith was a farmer and/or miller in Pictou ca. 1823. He is possibly William Smith, an early settler who established a flour and grist mill on his farm at West River, near Durham. The mill was in continuous use for several generations until J.W. Smith (1870-1935), William's great-grandson, moved it to Pictou and used it as the foundation for the Atlantic Milling Company.
The item was accessioned by Dalhousie University Archives in 1971. The custodial history is unknown.
Scope and content
Item is a letter (1823) from Lord Dalhousie to W. Smith, requesting that two barrels of Pictou oatmeal be shipped to Quebec on the next available vessel as a sample of Smith's produce.
