Bute Inlet Company
The British Colonist, Jan. 7, 1863

Jan. 7, 1863

At a meeting of the shareholders of this company yesterday at the rooms of A. Waddington, Esq., the following gentlemen were elected Directors for the coming year: A. Waddington, Esq., A. D. Macdonald, Esq., (banker) Dr. W. F. Tolmie, (H. B. Co.) D. [Lenerue?], Esq., (merchant) R. Burnaby, Esq., (merchant) Hugh Nelson, Esq., (of the firm of Dodge & Nelson, Douglas-Lillooet route). From the character of the Directors the success of the enterprise may be said to be guaranteed. What is more particularly noticeable among the Directors is the name of Mr. Nelson, one of the most enterprising packers in British Columbia. No other business of importance to the public was transacted at the meeting, but it is the intention of the Directors to spare no exertion to open the route early in the spring, by removing every obstruction to the passage of packtrains.
