He tells us that a person can do just as well in Canada as in the United States, especially at farming. When "Bill," as he was always called, left these parts he was a very stout boy, and his weight now is 230 pounds, and he is nearly six feet in height. His father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. Richard Free, are still living in Lindsay. About 25 years ago Bill was one of the most daring rough back riders in this part of the country, and generally practiced on a grey horse owned in those days be the late John Ellery.
