Dr. Codd’s Letters Part I
In the winter of 1847, a young British physician arrived in Montreal and made his way up through the Ottawa Valley, arriving eventually in a tiny backwoods settlement along its western frontier. What he experienced there over the next few years, he put into a set of uniquely vivid letters he sent back to England. Performed by The Opeongo Readers’ Theatre at the Pembroke Public Library on January 25th, 2020, those letters provides a unique window into the dark, druidical world that would become Renfrew County.
