Notice biographique

Businessman Alfred West was living at Cole's Island, Queens County, New Brunswick, in 1921 and 1922. On 15 June 1921 he entered into an agreement with Ashley A. Colter, secretary-treasurer of the Smith Foundry Co. Ltd., of Fredericton, N.B., to deliver 300,000 feet of spruce and fir to a cut up mill, at Cody's, for the sum of $12 per thousand. He also agreed to rent his mill and camp to Colter.

For his part, Ashley Colter agreed to pay for the rescale of these logs, to pay $500 immediately, to complete payment on 1 August 1921, and to keep the mill in repair in addition to paying rent. At the time of making this agreement, H. A. Smith was president and manager of the Smith Foundry Co. and W. D. Gunter was vice-president. The foundry manufactured the Dunbar shingle machine and superior lath machine, as well as contractors' equipment, agricultural implements, furnaces, stoves and utensils, iron and brass castings, and wrought and sheet iron goods.

By September 1921 a dispute had arisen between West and Colter over compliance with the terms of the agreement. It is unknown how, when, or if this dispute was resolved.
