First sentence: "My young readers, if they have studied the early history of their country, may have read of the famous expedition undertaken, in 1696, by the governor-general of New France (as the French settlement on our shores was then called), against the confederated Five Nations of New York; an expedition which, though it carried with it all the pomp and circumstance of European warfare into their wild-wood haunts, was attended with no adequate results, and had but a momentary effect in quelling the spirit of the tameless Indian."
