    During she and her husband edited and wrote for the Victoria Magazine, intending to supply good literature for the mechanic class - skilled and semiskilled workers.

Unsuccessful, they removed to Belleville in after Dunbar Moodie was appointed sheriff of Victoria District.

    Moodie taught her daughter Agnes how to paint flowers and Agnes later illustrated Canadian Wild Flowers, published in The order of Nature is labyrinth, complex, curved; the order of Western European Man tends to squares, straight lines, oblongs, and similar shapes. The customs, climate, wildlife and landscape as well as the social happenings of Upper Canada are brilliantly recorded in a series of journals, letters and biographical sketches that Moodie wrote to keep herself occupied and also to supplement the family income. When she and her family moved to a small town, Belleville, in Southeastern Ontario, this was much more to her liking. To this bears witness a potpourri of often frightening geopolitical, social, cultural, economic, demographic, ecological and other changes and challenges that gives substantial cause for concern about getting lost in a 'trans-whatever' sea of turmoil, uncertainty and indeterminateness.
