The fonds consists of a typed draft of a history of the Chignecto Isthmus area presented to the New Brunswick Historical Society at Saint John on 25 November 1933 by Dr. George J. Trueman. This paper describes the settlement of the area including Sackville, Westcock, Aulac (Westmorland Point), Mount Whatley, Point du Bute, Upper Point du Bute and Port Elgin in New Brunswick and Amherst, Fort Lawrence, and Tidnish in Nova Scotia. Dr. Trueman discusses the early settlement of Acadia, the expulsion of the Acadians, the struggles between the English and French, and the arrival of the New England and Yorkshire settlers.
Some names of settlers and their locations are given. A bibliography is included. There is also an article from the "Telegraph Journal", Saint John, 25 November 1933, describing the presentation of the paper.
