“Today I took off at 5:10am. It was a beautiful morning. At Port Hastings the Mayor [Billy Joe MacLean] and others were waiting to see me. It was very nice. I would have liked to have done more miles but I ran out of time. I was getting stopped continuously. During the last 6 miles we picked up $150. We were 8 miles out of Antigonish and a mile past Heatherton.”
