A letter written by Sir John A. Macdonald to Senator McCallum 7 January 1887 reads: "We are going to the election shortly and will have to fight hard for our existence. The wretched course of the mail has greatly diminished our chances of success. So that every friend of mine must put his shoulder to the wheel. Now no one can carry Monck but yourself and I appeal to you to carry the County for me. I have not forgotten our conversation about the Senate, and I shall carry out my promise but meanwhile you must save Monck."
