When we get into winter quarters I will write you whole sheets of paper. General Amherst with all the regulars in his Army, embarked at this place on the 11th instant, with a view to drive the French from the Isle de Noix and St. John's and so penetrate into the heart of Canada...The story of Quebec's being reduced (Sept 13, 1759) General Wolfe's death and all other circumstances of that interesting conquest, you will undoubtedly have before this arrives...". A splendid and historic entire.rnNote: Isle de Noix fell to the British in August 1760.
