Subject: JOHN MACEACHERN'S FAMILY HISTORY FRAGMENTS

Sorry I can't help......I do not know if he reported local scandal or not. The one
document of his that I transcribed, is transcribed in whole, therefore you are
seeing what I saw.
Other writings of John MacEachern, including as I understand it, 'diaries', are on
microfilm at PEI Archives, but to my knowledge have not been transcribed, and I
have not read them.
