Diary of a journey to British Columbia

Pocket diary kept by Hector Langevin during a trip by rail and steamship via the United States to visit British Columbia. In 1871 as Minister of Public Works of Canada, Langevin was sent by the Federal Cabinet to visit British Columbia with the mission to acquire knowledge of the new province in relation to the Canadian Pacific Railway and possible location of its western terminus, and also to study the requirements of British Columbia for public works. Langevin's journey took him from central Canada to Chicago, then by the American Pacific Railway to San Francisco, where he embarked on the steamer Prince Alfred traveling to Victoria on Vancouver Island, and then to the mainland.
