"Canada for Gentlemen" is a series of letters by the author, James Seaton Cockburn, to his family as he sets out in 1884 from Dawlish, England to Canada to seek his fortune. He struggles immensely to gain any employment. Although he's trained as an engineer, for a long time he cannot find even a simple post as a farm hand. Through perseverance he lands a job at a lawyer's firm in Ottawa as a draughtsman. Not long after that the story ends.
