1830  16 Apr

    1232. Nathaniel W. White to his brother Cornelius. ''What a pretty kettle of fish have the skippers of the state vessel cooked! They have managed to throw all the fat into the fire & have been amusing themselves with the pretty blaze it has made.'' Comments on Archibald's volte face and Barry's inconsistency. ''Now is the time to come forward in politics...The political game must now be played by men of entirely a different stamp from those who have been shuffling the cards. So far Nova Scotia politicks have been a paltry business, unworthy of the higher order of minds to descent to dabble in, but a new era has commented that will afford ''ample verge and scope enough.'' Uniacke has made a manly stand, but has left the arena. After all my drowsiness some little cherub that sits up aloft tells me that I am destined for a political career and I long to shake off the film of sloth & buckle on the armour and fight a good fight. My worthy opponent...has laid himself open & much may be made of it by skilful hands...a dissolution must take place a ssoon as the Governor returns...Do let me know your ideas candidly on prospects.'' Holograph.
