      [342] Morris to Shirley, 16 Aug. 1755. * La Hontan, II. 81 (ed. 1709).

      CHAPTER III.28

      "Couldn't say, sir. Everything was quiet when we started over."

At noon the whole army was on shore. Rogers, with a party of rangers, was ordered forward to reconnoitre, and the troops were formed for the march.


      "Not with me," he said, showing his yellow teeth.



      A copy of this eulogy fell into the hands of an enemy of Frontenac, who wrote a running commentary upon it. The copy thus annotated is still preserved at Quebec. A few passages from the orator and his critic will show the violent conflict of opinion concerning the governor, and illustrate in some sort, though with more force than fairness, the contradictions of his character:
