"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...".

From The diary of Mrs. John Graves Simcoe...:
Lieutenant-Colonel Joseph Bouchette('s) reports seem to have led to the arrest of Colonel McLean, afterwards executed as a spy. In 1804, he (Bouchette) was appointed Surveyor-General of Lower Canada, raised a regiment, Quebec Volunteers, in 1812, and in 1813 was appointed lieutenant-colonel and transferred to staff and intelligence service. In August, 1814, Bouchette left for England, and while there was nominated Surveyor-General under the several articles of the Treaty of Ghent, for establishing the boundary between the United States and His Majesty's possessions in America.
