The following description of his first visit to Prince Edward Island appeared in Gaelic in MacTalla, from 3 October 1896 to 16 January 1897. (MacKinnon edited and published MacTalla in Sydney, Cape Breton, from 1892 to 1904 - which makes it, astonishingly, the longest-running Gaelic newspaper in the world to date.)
