Description
They are informed by Mr. [James] Price that there is not water enough in Lake St. Pierre for a frigate to pass; a gondola at the mouth of the Sorel may therefore be enough to keep the enemy from coming higher; Mr. Price thinks the want of provisions may be overcome by purchasing with the specie now in his hands, or by using force if a fair price is refused; other advice and opinions of Mr. Price, to which they ask Gen. Thomas to send an answer.
