The letter was written to Mrs. James Mack c/o Wilford Fisher close to the time when the postal system was being created in New Brunswick. The only person in the census living on Grand Manan in 1851 with a name close to Mrs. James Mack is Jane MacKay and her children. Jane is 53 years old. By the 1861 census, this same family with all the same children's names and all ten years older have the last name of Mack. As of 2013, the house still exists and is located across the road from the Mark Hill Red Deer Farm.
