"To the Friends of Churchill Island Society past, present and future./ Many thanks for your friendship and support. I could not have finished without you. /The errors that remain (and there are likely to be some!) are all my own fault./ I hope that this is of some use, even if I don't really solve the mystery of the location of the 1801 garden. May you forever "Preserve that which is precious". /Rebecca, 14th May 2016".
