From the June number of the Canadian Bookseller and Stationer we clip the following respecting the late James Barber, Esq., of the paper mills Georgetown:-
On the 19th May, one of our oldest and best paper makers was called to his rest at the age of sixty nine. MR. JAMES BARBER was a native of Antrim, Ireland, and came to Canada in 1822. In 1854 he erected, in conjunction with his brother, their first paper mill, at Georgetown, in the county of Halton; this in a few years was followed by a second, and since then by various extensions and additions. These mills have supplied the public with thousands of tons of paper of a quality well known throughout the Province, and will continue to be carried on by two of his sons, who have long been associated with him in the management. Mr. Barber stood high in commercial circles, and no man was more respected by the community among whom he resided. He held several important local offices, and his death is much regretted. His wife, three sons, and three daughters, survive him.
