Visited the Bell Farm on September 7, 1893. Thomas Bready (1854-1903) was a grain merchant and, as such, became a prominent capitalist and President of the Winnipeg Elevator Company. While at the Bell Farm, he "pronounced the wheat the best he had seen during his travels this season".

His strong affiliation with wheat production might well have put him in association with Major Bell after the Bell family returned to Winnipeg in 1901.
