Memories Of Neil Campbell


The suggestion that tho Campbells residing in Canada should present an Address to the Marquess of Lorno was made in tho summer of 1881, and tho first step taken was the sending of the following circular to some of the loading men of the name in tho several .Provinces of tho Dominion :—
Ottawa, August 15, 1881.
Slit,—It has been thought that during the stay of the Marquess of Lome in Canada, an opportunity might well and pleasantly be taken of presenting an Address to him from those who bear the name of Campbell in the Dominion.
It could not but bo gratifying to the eldest son of tho Chief of the Clan to find the strength and pride with which cherished memories of the House of Argyll and of the history of the Clan are maintained by all who share in the honour of bearing his name.
To accomplish the object thoroughly some careful organization and continuous work will be necessary, and some expense must be incurred.
I venture to take upon myself to address you upon the subject and to enquire if you approve of the proposal, and if you will give it your assistance?
I will be much obliged if you will send me the Post Office addresses of those of the name whom you think it would be well that I should communicate with on the subject, which should in the meantime bo considered private.
Your obedient servant,
Address reply to Sir Alexander Campbell, K.C.M.G., Ottawa.
Replies, approving of the proposition, were received from almost all those to whom the circular was transmitted, and upon this the Address was prepared; and, having been shewn to and approved of by one or two of the name, whose judgment was deemed to be the best upon the subject, one hundred copies were printod, and, with sheets of parchment of the proper size, were sent to about one hundred Campbells in all parts of the country.
Many difficulties attended tho procuring of signatures, the state of the roads and the distance to be travelled made it in many cases a difficult task; but, with hardly an exception, all those to whom the duty was entrusted devoted themselves to it with persistent energy, and so successfully that, at the end of March, 1882, the sheets were all returned to Ottawa. They were in number 146, and the number of names procured 2,845. It was thought desirable that men and lads only should bo asked to sign.
The Address itself was then engrossed and beautifully illuminated by Mr. Medlow, of Ottawa, and, with tho sheets which had been originally cut of the same size as that used for the engrossing, was entrusted to Messrs. Dawson Brothers, of Montreal, to be bound. The task of selecting the kind of binding, colour and extent of ornamentation to be used, was undertaken by tho late much esteemed Dr. George Campbell, of Montreal, he chose brown and gold (the colours of the Argyll family) for the binding, which was admirably executed by the Messrs. Dawson in thick Russia leather. The ornamentation consisted of the word “Lorne” surmounted by a coronet, and one of the mottoes of the Argyll family “ne obliviscaris” underneath.
It was originally intended to have presented the Address during the Session of Parliament in May last, but Lord Lorne, upon being requested to appoint a day for the purpose, most graciously suggested that it would enhance the pleasure of the occasion very much if Her Royal Highness the Princess Louise could be present, and he requested that the presentation should be postponed and should take place immediately after the arrival of the Princess from England. Her Royal Highness arrived on Sunday the 4th, and on Monday a telegram was received, by direction of the Marquess, fixing for the presentation of the Address, Tuesday, the 13th of June, at 12 o’clock. Circulars had in the meantime been sent to about thirty (including all who had taken the most active part in procuring signatures and who, it was thought, would be likely to attend), requesting their presence on the occasion of the presentation, and saying that, as soon as a day had been fixed, if they desired it and could attend, telegrams would be sent to them informing them of the day and hour and appointing a rendezvous in Quebec. Telegrams were accordingly sent naming the St. Louis Hotel, on Tuesday, the 13th, at 11.30. The occurrence of the general elections and the distance to be travelled prevented the attendance of many of those who no doubt would have wished to have been present, but at tho time appointed the following gentlemen assembled:
Sir Alexander Campbell, K.C.M.G., of Ottawa; Francis Campbell, M.D., of Montreal; the Rev. Robert Campbell, of Montreal; Captain F. A. C. Campbell, of St. Hilaire; Charles J. Campbell, of Toronto; Campbell, of Lochaber; Neil Campbell, his son; Archibald Campbell, of Quebec; Kennetb J. R. Campbell, of Quebec; Robert Campbell (St. Hilaire), of Quebec; Benjamin Campbell, of Quebec; and John Campbell, of Quebec.
The delegates proceeded in carriages to the Citadel. They were received by and presented to the Marquess of Lorne, and followed him to the drawing-room, whore they were severally presented to Her Royal Highness the Princess, who received them very graciously. The Address was then read by Sir Alexander Campbell in the following words:—
The Most Honourable Sir John Douglas Sutherland Campbell, Marquess of Lorne, one of Her Majesty’s Right Honourable Privy Council, Knight of the Thistle, and Knight Grand Cross of St. Michael and St. George.
My Lord Marquess:
'We who, in Canada, have the honour of bearing the name of “Campbell,” desire to express to you the pride and satisfaction with which we have beheld the government of the country, wherein we have cast our lot, entrusted to the eldest son of our Chief.
No name could have afforded stronger guarantees for the maintenance of constitutional rule than that of a House famous in Scottish history for the part which its Chiefs have taken in support of parliamentary government, liberty of conscience, and the Throne as established by law, and Your Lordship’s course, in the discharge of the duties of your high office, has commanded general confidence, and amply vindicated the wisdom of our Sovereign’s choice.
But it is to Your Lordship, as the eldest son of the Chief of our Clan, that we desire to address ourselves on this occasion. Most of us have never seen the land of our sires, and some amongst us have but the dimmest recollection of it, but neither lapse of time nor separation from Scotland has destroyed our respect and attachment to the House of Argyll. In this distant land, where we have all prospered, we still rejoice in the name we bear, and in the stirring memories which it recalls; and the clustering honours which your noble ancestors and other distinguished clansmen have heaped upon it will afford us, we hope, additional incentives to honourable life and action.
We may not tender you the expression of the fealty and devotion with which in times past our fathers served “MacChaillan More,” but the motto on your arms is still our guide, and we have forgotten none of those traditions of our race which bind us to your illustrious House.
We wish the Princess and yourself health and happiness during your sojourn in Canada, and to Your Lordship, a long and distinguished career in the service of the Empire.
