description That year, 1830, would forever re- main in the mind of John MacEachern as the most important of his lifetime. It was the year of his emigration, as a 20-year-old, from Rosneath, Scotland, to Rice Point, Prince Edward Island. Nine years after his arrival, when the most strenuous part of the pioneer ex- perience was over, MacEachern began the practice of making a brief record of the events of each day. This diary, or day-book, was kept faithfully to the very end of his long life; and often, on May 19th, he would pen variations of this brief but suggestive entry: "This day we landed at Charlottetown, 1830."
