Macdonald may be “Kingston's favourite son,” but he also claims many happy youthful moments elsewhere. In a speech at the Picton courthouse in 1861, reminisces about “...the good old County...my early associations are connected with Prince Edward – some of the happiest days of my life were spent here – I here obtained my earliest professional education, and here, in this good old town of Picton, I earned my first fee and made my first speech to a jury in this very Court House.”
