Excerpt 2: from A History of Killaloe Station

"Since at this time the writer was a resident of Mount Pleasant, in the Township of Guthrie, in the District of Nipissing, he experienced and counted as many as forty teams of horses from about 4:00 p.m. until dark, going by with supplies for the existing lumbering operations. While those forty teams would be only a portion of the teams that would be moving on the Bonnechere Road in one day, the reason why the writer would start to count at 4:00 p.m. was that it was more exciting to see so many of them at one time, sometimes as many as ten teams at one time coming on the scene."
