He reports a splendid trip, lovely scenery, good roads mostly all the way. Some showery weather, but also some real summer days. He was accompanied by his wifeís father, Mr. John Mason of Hudson who remained in Rochester, while undergoing treatment for a very painful knee, from which he has suffered for almost two years. His many friends are hoping he may return very much benefited. .

In a quiet little town
Where the Wabi River flows
I played with other children
Round my old New Liskeard home.
Some like me have wandered
So many that Iíve known
And they hardly ever talk about
Our old New Liskeard home.

Oh the lakes and the rivers
The pasture lands so green
The wild and wooded forests
Iíve seen often in my dreams.
Some tell of the glories of
The bright and golden west
But I will tell of Liskeard
The place I loved the best.

May Godís Blessings rest on Liskeard
The town I call my home
And also on the friends
Only Northerners have known.
Let others tell their stories
Of the places they have been
When God calls Iíll rest in Liskeard
Beside my friends and kin.

by Hannah Dunn.

Editorís Note: This poem was written by a young wife, who was leaving New Liskeard and did not expect to return, however, return she did, many years and sixteen grandchildren later. The poem was submitted by her daughter, Mrs. C. Chalmers of New Liskeard.

Temiskaming Speaker, February 5, 1970, page 16


To our many readers the news that John Dunn had been drowned near Proctor last week will come as a great shock. We understand that in company with a brother-in-law, Mr. Dunn was returning from Nelson to Proctor in a canoe. About a mile from Proctor there is a narrows in the river; where the water runs very rapidly and in going through this channel the canoe upset. Both young men started to swim for shore, but in opposite directions, and Mr. Dunn went under before he could make the land. The deceased was an expert canoe man and a good swimmer so that the general impression is that he must have taken cramps, as the river at this particular place is not very wide. The deceased went west with Mr. R. Herron, last fall, taking his wife with him and is a son of Mr. Dunn, of Hudson Township, and a brother-in-law of Mr. Harry Clayton, of this town. Before coming to Temiskaming the family lived on Lake Rosseau in Muskoka where they have many friends. A large circle of friends will extend our sympathy to the bereaved family in the tragic death of the deceased, who is cut off just in the prime of life.

Temiskaming Speaker, May 8, 1908 page 1


Last week Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Dunn received the sad intelligence that their son John had been drowned in British Columbia. He left here with Mr. R. B Herron last fall. It appears he and his brother-in-law Mr. Penson, were proceeding home on April 25th by canoe and in running a rapids the canoe upset. Mr. Penson managed to reach shore in an exhausted condition, but it is supposed Mr. Dunn took cramps as he was an excellent swimmer. It has not been learned yet whether his body has been found or not. He leaves a wife and three small children. The relatives have the sympathy of their many friends in their sad bereavement.

Drowned near Nelson, B.C.

By the upsetting of a boat near Nelson B.C., on May 24th, three men were drowned. The high water in that section has made the currents very dangerous and caused the boat to upset. Our readers will remember that the late John Dunn met his death in that vicinity and under similar circumstances a few weeks ago.
