Orders To De Gaugreben

Select British documents of the Canadian War of 1812, from Lt.-Col. Bruyeres at Kingston, to Prevost at Kingston, 19th January 1813:

Dear Sir:
"I left Prescott on Friday last after having given the necessary directions to Lieut. de Gaugreben to proceed with the Survey of that Post, and to erect without delay a Block House on a small commanding spot in the rear of the present Battery which it will completely protect; it is also intended to improve, and close this Battery as soon as it is possible to break ground. — I slept that night at Brockville, twelve Miles from Prescott...".
