The article discusses the history of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, focusing on the year 1843. It provides an overview of European settlement of Cape Breton Island, particularly considering settlers from the Highlands of Scotland. The author notes that these settlers and farmers were thought of as "indolent" and "feckless" and examines a mission undertaken by the Church of Scotland's Rev. Murdoch Stewart to bring them Christianity and civilization. The early presence of the indigenous Mi'kmaq Indians on Cape Breton is also noted.
