Description

Extracts from the orders issued by General James Wolfe during the Quebec campaign, dated April 30-September 12, 1759, and by Generals George Townshend and James Murray at Quebec, dated September 14, 1759 through April 28, 1760. These extracts appear to be in a contemporary hand. They include orders not found in John Knox's Journal (London, 1769) and the text often differs from that given by Knox. At the end of the volume is a short account of Wolfe's death, and of the landing of his body at Portsmouth.
