Je l'ay laissee en estat d'augmenter beaucoup si elle est protegee; j'y ai fait quelque depense qui n'est pas inutile. La bonne intelligence que j'ai eue avec ces sauvages par les soins des Jesuites, et surtout des deux peres Bigot freres a fait le succes de toutes les attaques qu'ils ont faites sur les Anglois cet este, aux quels ils ont enleve 16 forts, outre celuy de Pemcuit (Pemaquid) ou il y avoit 20 pieces de canon, et leur ont tue...
