T.D Mkee

James McIntyre 1828 (Forres) – 1906

While referring to past glories of Ireland, perhaps we might refer to that great Irish Historian,
the late Honourable T. D. McKee, of whom we have written a poem in the earlier portion of this work,
and we will give you an anecdote of him while here, showing his ready wit while he was rising from
the supper table around which was a number of guests assembled, all eyes being naturally turned on
him as the great centre of attraction, but the chair, being new, stuck to him ; he instantly exclaimed, I
wish the Montreal people were as anxious to retain me in my seat as you are in Ingersoll. He being a
member for Montreal, wrote a fine poem on the St. Lawrence, where in Cartier describes to the King,
on his return to Europe, the great river.

' He told them of a river whose mighty torrent gave
A freshness for a hundred leagues to oceans briney wave.'
