Excerpt 3: from Report, Field Notes and Diary of the Township of Burns

"There is a very fair traveled road leading through the township along the margin of the Bonnechere used by the lumbermen in transporting supplies into the interior. There is one settler (Francis Currier) living in the Township on lot 8 Conc. 11 who keeps a hotel or stopping place and who has a very good house and out buildings. There is an immense amount of travel along this road during the winter months."
