Letter, Lewis Blanchard, Montreal, Lower Canada, to Abel Blanchard, Peacham, Vermont
Lewis speaks of the raising of a regiment of Canadian militia, with an eye to possible war with the United States. Notes the terms of enlistment, and the large number of Americans who have volunteered (including an acquaintance, John Guy). Plans to spend the summer in Montreal; the harsh winter there, and commentary on prices.
