Keys to History

Mr. David Mills, was now taken into the Cabinet as Minister of the Interior, to the evident dissatisfaction of the "Globe", which regarded him as dangerously radical in his views on the Senate and other questions. As has already been noted, Mr. Blake was also looked upon as a young man rather inclined to be "fast." On the appointment of Mr. Mills, the "Mail" expressed a sympathy for Mr. Mackenzie which was very touching under the circumstances. (Excerpt from: Bengough, John Wilson. A Caricature History of Canadian Politics: Events from the Union of 1841, as Illustrated by Cartoons from "Grip", and Various Other Sources. Toronto: The Grip Printing and Publishing Co, 1886.)
