She took the car back to the station and walked across the Suspension Bridge to Canada, paying the 15 cent toll. She visited Drummondville and Clifton and Queen Victoria Park, which she described as “a beautiful place with pretty flowers”. She commented that she found “Canada a very quiet and desolate place”. After her visit to Niagara, she left for Philadelphia.
