Good Rainy Morning Everyone! I just came across this review last night on the Miramichi Reader. Thank you James, very much!
Over the weekend I was given some material on a poorhouse which I will be writing about on here. Stayed tuned!

PS -If anyone wants to share information with me about their local poorhouse, just message me. 🙂
