Article by C.B. Fergusson; 5 pages. "Today membership in the Order of the Good Time is a vivid reminder of a colourful tradition which began ...at Port Royal.... Any visitor who remains in Nova Scotia for three days qualifies for membership. Only four things are requested of members - to have a good time, to remember us pleasantly, to speak of us kindly, and to come back again".
