Premier of the Island on two previous occasions (1865-7 and 1870-2), he again assumed that office in April, 1873, and played a significant role in the final negotiations that preceded Prince Edward Island’s entry into Confederation on July 1 of that year. Resigning as Premier to enter Federal politics, he was elected to the House of Commons and subsequently served as Minister of Marine and Fisheries (1878-1882). He died at Summerside.
