The Quebec Chronicle-Telegraph, founded by William Brown (c. 1737 - 1789) as the Quebec Gazette in June 1764, is the oldest newspaper in Quebec. Until 1842, the newspaper published editions in both French and English. It originally began as a weekly, but, in May 1832, it began appearing in English on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and in French on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. The Quebec Gazette merged with the Morning Chronicle in 1873 to become the Quebec Chronicle and Quebec Gazette. In July 1925, another merger occurred with the Quebec Daily Telegraph and the paper was then published as the Chronicle-Telegraph until 1934, when it added 'Quebec' to the front of its name, where it remains to this day.
This collection consists of subscription books of the Quebec Gazette from 1768 to 1803. including one for Staff Surgeon Walter Henry's book "Trifles from My Portfolio". There are also letters to the editor and correspondence relating to accounts, orders and subscriptions, as well as accounts and orders.
