  1. Hello Mr. Schlee. I’ve really enjoyed reading your articles about early settlers in the area. I’m in the midst of preparing a talk on “York in 1812” and will use some of the information you’ve provided. Have you published any books? I think your articles could easily be compiled into a fascinating and successful publication.

  2. Hello Gary, I found your article on 1793 – Yonge Street quite interesting. I can see that you have studied Jones’s survey notes quite thoroughly. I found it fascination to follow his survey notes in Google Earth and having his descriptions line up with the terrain accurately. Unfortunate that Percy Robinson was born 35 years too early.

    P.S. This website is a leading example of how to make an amazing contribution to society. Kudos to you and your colleagues.
