Excerpt from The Heroine of the Strait: A Romance of Detroit in the Time of Pontiac
The manuscript proved to be the story of the Siege of Detroit by the Indians under the Ottawa chief, Pontiac, told from day to day, with a close regard to detail.
Antiquarians suppose it to be from the pen of either the Jesuit, Father Potier of the Huron Mission, or the Recollet, Monsieur Bocquet, curé of the church of Ste. Anne.
