This chapter first describes the Five Nations' continuing war with the French. The Five Nations had sent a party to the Island of Montreal that attacked a party of regular troops, killing the commanding Officer and twelve of his Men. Another party carried off fifteen or sixteen Prisoners from Riviere Puante, over Trois Rivieres. These incursions kept the entire river, from Montreal to Quebeck, in a constant state of alarm, and resulted in the Governor of Canada sending all the soldiers to guard the south side of the river. The remainder of the chapter covers the Mohawks's growing distrust of the English, thus prompting them to consider making peace with the French; and the meeting between Colonel Slaughter, the Governor of New York, and the Five Nations, at the end of May 1691.
