 Vaudreuil au Ministre, 10 Juillet, 1756. Rsum des Nouvelles du Canada, Sept. 1756.THE OUTAGAMIE WAR.
285 Massachusetts had made her usual mistake. She had confidently believed that ignorance and inexperience could match the skill of a tried veteran, and that the rude courage of her fishermen and farmers could triumph without discipline or leadership. The conditions of her material prosperity were adverse to efficiency in war. A trading republic, without trained officers, may win victories; but it wins them either by accident or by an extravagant outlay in money and life.
1697-1741.When France was heaving with the throes that prepared the Revolution; when new hopes, new dreams, new thoughts,good and evil, false and true,tossed the troubled waters of French society, Canada caught something of its social corruption, but not the faintest impulsion of its roused mental life. The torrent surged on its way; while, in the deep nook beside it, the sticks and dry leaves floated their usual round, and the unruffled pool slept in the placidity of intellectual torpor. ***
 "Il est clair que M. de Bienville n'a pas les qualits ncessaires pour bien gouverner la colonie." Gayarr found this curious letter in the Archives de la Marine.
