Scope and content

Gertrude E.N. Tratt: "A veritable chain of publications following each other in close succession from 1840, finally ended with the Cape Breton Times. The earliest in the series was the Cape Breton Advocate published by Richard Huntington and edited by Otto S. Weeks. Its prospectus was dated 24 July 1840 and read: "It is proposed to publish the Sydney, Cape Breton, as soon as a sufficient number of subscribers can be obtained, a Weekly Newspaper to be called "THE CAPE BRETON ADVOCATE". It will be printed on a quarter sheet of fine paper, the size of the Halifax Pearl at the rate of Fifteen Shillings per annum payable half yearly ... a correct and copious Marine Journal will be published in every number, and the fluctuations of the American, West India, and Provincial Markets will be duly noticed ... a general summary of foreign and domestic intelligence will be given ... with a correct record of local events. During the sessions of the Legislature the proceedings will always be briefly noted. Communications, when not of a personal nature will ... be ... inserted. The day of publication will be Wednesday"."
