"In March 1884, a newly ordained deacon, the Reverend Ned Harris, arrived in Mahone Bay from Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, via King's College in Windsor, Nova Scotia, as curate to the Reverend W.H. Snyder, who had been Rector of Mahone Bay since 1858. Every few days Ned wrote a letter home describing his adventures. .... Central to the story he tells is the building of St. James's Church, Mahone Bay, designed by his brother William, which stands today as one of the landmark buildings of Nova Scotia. In the mid 1880s St. James's Church was the subject of sharp controversy, the story of which has never been told until now". -- back cover.
"The small sketches that adorn these pages, some of them made by James Harris, Ned's nephew, and others by Robert Harris [Ned's brother], or Ned himself, are taken from 'The Wells Our Fathers Digged'." -- Intro.
