    Notes 
    • BLAISE JUILLET and "The Expedition of DOLLARD"

When his project had received "the approbation and agreement of those in command", Dollard presumably spent part of the winter making his preparations,recruiting volunteers and laying in supplies "for ye whole summer", Lambert Closse,CHARLES LE MOYNE and Pierre Picote de Belestre would have liked to join him if Dollard had agreed to "defer the enterprise until after the seeding"; but Dollard refused, since he would have to give up "the honor of being in command."

The departure was set for 19 April. Hardly had the canoes left shore on the appointed day when cries were heard coming from the Ile Saint-Paul, opposite Montreal. Hastening there, Dollard's troop forced a party of Iroquois Indians to scatter into the woods, but they were too late to save the three Frenchmen who were the victims of this attack: Nicolas Duval had been killed and his companions, Blaise Juillet and Mathurin Soulard, had been drowned while trying to escape from the enemy. Dollard seized the Iroquois canoe, took Duval's body back to Ville-Marie, and probably attended his funeral the next day. A few years ago a monument was erected on the Outaouais (Wisconsin) River at the place where this heroic combat took place."
