subject Prince Edward Island Museum
description It is 21 June 1851, a soft evening on the edge of summer. Daylight is slowly ebbing, but there is light enough still for the purpose at hand. Government Farm is deserted and silent. A little to the east, sheltered by a grove of hardwood trees, stands the stately residence of the Queen's representative on Prince Edward Island. Close by, the unmanned cannon of Fort Edward Battery command the harbour basin. Blue herons, retreating with the tide, stalk the shallow water near shore. A few gulls wheel overhead, oblivious to the human drama being played out below.
