The expedition to the Hamilton River Basin of Labrador took place in 1891; a letter dated October 1893 is printed on p. 66-71. The expedition explored parts of the Hamilton River, the Northwest River and the Atlantic Coast. Narrative begins with: "On board the Julia A Decker, Port Hawkesbury, Gut of Canso, July 6th, 1891. Here the staunch Julia lies at anchor waiting for a change in the wind and a break in the fog. Today will be memorable in the annals of the Micmac Indians, for Prof. Lee has spent his enforced leisure in putting in anthropometric work among them, inducing braves, squaws and papooses of both sexes to mount the trunk that served as a measuring block and go through the ordeal of having their height, standing and sitting, stretch of arms, various diameters of head and peculiarities of the physiognomy taken down. While he was with two assistans wast thus employed, two of our photographic corps were busily engaged in preserving as many of their odd faces and costumes as possible." ; Ex-Library; 71 pages.
