Quote from a former slave:

 
  "I am happy to inform you that I am in Canada, in good health, and have been here several days . . . This country is not what it has been represented to me and others to be. In place of its being cold and barren, it has beautiful, comfortable climate and fertile soil.
. . . I subscribe myself one of the abused of America, but one of the justified and honored of Canada."

- Jackson WHITNEY, upon arrival in Sandwich (near Windsor, Ontario), in a letter to a friend in Kentucky (1859).
