Pringle, Reverend A. David
Reverend A. David Pringle is one of fifty others who signed a document written to Sir James Douglas, which discusses the importance of establishing road links into the interior of British Columbia and gives thanks to the governor for his help thus far in promoting the construction of existing routes.1 W. Elmsley states, in this despatch, that Pringle is his nephew and reveals Pringle’s involvement in forwarding a memorial to the governor.2 The memorial in question was written by British subjects in British Columbia, and expresses various grievances with their administration as well as a desire to separate from the government of Vancouver Island.3
