The Statutes of the Province of Upper Canada; Together with such British Statutes, Ordinances of Quebec, and Proclamations, as Relate to the Said Province.
Printed by Francis M. Hill
Hugh C. Thomson was a member of the House of Assembly for the County of Frontenac. He and James Macfarlane were both associated with Kingston newspapers, Thomson with the Upper Canada Herald, which he founded, and Macfarlane with the Kingston Chronicle. In the Advertisement at the front of this volume, they refer to the "universally acknowledged necessity" of a revised edition of the Statutes of Upper Canada as their reason for taking upon themselves the "risk and responsibility" of publishing. The Advertisement also refers to "the Gentleman" who prepared the index and notes of reference; presumably this was the lawyer, James Nickalls. There is no rearrangement or consolidation of the original statutes in this edition. If ammendments are made, the reader is referred from the original act to the ammended one.
