I'd like to get copy of article with drawings that you posted re: Tom Thomson's and Ben Jackson's canoe trip in Algonquin Park in May 1912. Do you have a contact at the National Gallery? You transcribed the article.

As I recall they only have a photograph of the article, from which I made the transcription (with much difficulty). I was never able to find a copy of the original in any archives. I am not able to consult my notes for a few weeks, but will then look for a contact name for you.

Angie, If you send a contact request to The Friends of Algonquin Park with your phone number they will forward it to me and I will contact you.

I found a copy of the photograph of the newspaper page on a PowerPoint and it says I got the image from the National Gallery of Canada. The text was very difficult to read. The images at the top were not too bad in the reproduction.
