Example text

Mercier left this morning for Frontenac to get the artillery prepared. July 20: Received news from Quebec that MM. de Brugnon and de la Rigaudière, one commanding the frigate Sirène, the other the Licorne, have been ordered to sail and attack two English frigates in position at Isle St. Jean. July 21: I left Montreal with the Marquis de Montcalm at Page 14 half-past four this evening. We reached Lachine, where we spent the night, at half-past seven. Lachine is three leagues from Montreal. It is the place where one embarks for all voyages to the west, the river not being navigable from Montreal to this place.

Every day is passed in council with one or the other. They will leave day after tomorrow for Montreal. There have arrived at Niagara deputies of the Cayugas and the Senecas. They came with M. de Joncaire,35 an officer of colony troops, our ambassador to these tribes. The Menominees have joined us here and follow us as far as Frontenac and farther if we can make them stay with us. July 27: This morning the Presentation Indians sang the war song, and were given a cow and a cask of wine for their war feast.

July 2: Received news of the taking of an English shallop, armed with nine swivels, on Lake Ontario. Our armed craft met those of the English on their first reconnaissance. The English maneuvered to give chase, but, seeing us advance instead of turning tail, they fled. Maxim of the English at sea: avoid combat when only on equal or slightly superior terms on the same principle that one gives one's purse without any resistance to any thief who demands it, even in a public place and within reach of help.
