Anecdote*7 March 1829Valcartier, Quebec County, Quebec, Canada; In testimony before the Road Commissioners, Thomas stated:
Thomas McMullan, of Valcartier, having been called in said: -
I was born in the North of Ireland, and came to Canada in 1821. I came to this country induced by reports that this country was a fine one for a labouring man, where he could easily earn his bread. I heard that Emigrants would do well, but I have not, however, found it so favorable as I expected. I had a wife and four children when I came to this country, it was in the fall; the oldest of my children is now 14 years of age, and the youngest three years: - they are now five in number. I had not a shilling when I came here. I sold a few Carpenters' Tools I had, to get food during my first week's stay here. I then occupied myself with sawing wood, in Town, at a rate of two shillings per cord, for about three weeks; I could earn only about two shillings a day at this work. I then engaged myself to clear land at Valcartier for Mr. Stuart; I was allowed £30 for clearing ten acres; I arrived in Valcartier in November; I have always stayed there since. I cut down about four acres during that winter, and was paid for it at the above rate; I had nothing else to support my family with during that winter, except 10 or 12 days work which I procured from individuals at Valcartier, at a rate of one shilling and six pence per day. I went quite to the bush in the Fifth Concession of Valcartier, where, immediately on my arrival, I cut logs, and made a small house, 12 feet by 14 feet, 5 feet high, which I covered with shingles, with a hole in the shingles at one end to let the smoke out; I floored it with logs, excepting at the end where we made the fire. I was about two miles and half from the nearest settler; there was for this distance nothing but an Indian path. I carried my provisions on my back for this distance, sometimes up to the middle in snow; my provisions were potatoes and flour. I paid two shillings and six pence per minot, for potatoes, and about from ten to twelve shillings and six pence per quintal of flour. I bought potatoes for two years, except a few which I received in the summer following my arrival. I bought about one bushel and half a week during that time: I had some pork, but no fish; We consumed about 5 lb. pork a week; it was sent out by the Gentlemen with whom I had contracted; and delivered as wanted; we consumed about two quintals of flour during the winter, some of it we made into cakes and some in loaves; we used the potatoes boiled with salt, and sometime with pork; we made very little use of grog, except even by chance when we came in town; we had a little tea and sugar, sometimes once a week, on the Sabbath. In the spring I cleared off nearly all I had cut down, about 3 or 4 acres, and put in about five bushels of potatoes, but they were too late; I howed them, and picked them up in the fall; I put in nothing else. During that spring I worked a good deal for my neighbors at one shilling and six pence per day, which I received in provisions and goods bought from Town for me: I was the middling only. I supported my family entirely by this means. I did not get more than 16 or 18 bushels of potatoes from what I had put in the ground, which, although watery and otherwise not good, we consumed during the ensuing season. During the second winter I cut down about six acres of land, for which I was paid at the same rate; I got a good deal of employment this winter, I suppose 30 or 40 days labor at one shilling and six pence; my wife could afford me no assistance; I had not a shilling of cash. In the spring I cleared off three more acres, and sowed about 10 bushels of potatoes and 2 bushels green oats in good time: I got a good deal of day labour at the same rate, and paid in the same way. In the fall I gathered 150 bushels potatoes; cut my oats with a scythe and put them in small stacks; I had no cattle to consume them and no road to carry them to market, so they rotted on the ground. During the third winter I cut down and branched about three acres of land for one McCartney, a settler at Valcartier, at three dollars an acre; and worked for others. I found myself a little better off this third winter, but not a great deal. I had by this time finished the job I had undertaken. The second winter I applied to Mr. Belanger, the Agent of the Nuns, who have a Seigniory at Valcartier, and obtained a grant of 126 arpents; it is at the distance of about 30 arpents from my first clearing. The third spring I commenced clearing my own land; cut down about 5 acres and cleared about three, alone. I planted about 10 or 12 bushels of Potatoes and got a return of 200. I was cutting and branching on my own land during the whole winter. I got a pretty good barn about the 15th or 16th May; I removed on my own farm that same spring, and built a log hut larger than the first. My family and I were better found, but I had no money. I completed the clearing of four acres that summer, and next winter I employed myself cutting down and up, and occasionally got day labour. I have now about 16 acres of cleared land and five or six more cut down. I suppose I can clear about 4 acres a year. I got a cow in the fifth year, it was given to me in part payment of my work. My crop last year consisted of about 250 bushels of Potatoes, 30 bushels of Oats, and 900 bundles of hay. I am now getting a good deal better than I was. I never would have got a farm of my own in Ireland. I think I am better than I could expect in Ireland. I m not the least sorry that I came out, but was so at first. In the year before last I bought a second cow with the produce of my oats, which amounted to about ten dollars. I allowed her to run fallow in the bush, where she fattened I have killed her. I suppose that in the beginning of April I shall have her eat, we began in November; ˆ use the tallow for candles; I had the hide sold on the market for seven shillings and six pence.
