Excerpt from Montreal: The Canadian Metropolis and Its Many Attractions

The early history of Canada and the United States is indelibly blended at Montreal - for here dwelt the intrepid La Sallc (the Mississippi explorer) Da l'hut (the founder of Duluth), Cadillac (the founder of Detroit). _bienville (the founder of New Orleans), and other adventurous spirits, whose names are still revered by posterity. Ville-marie was, too, the headquarters of the great French fur trading and exploring companies. Whose operations throughout the great West, extended to the foot-hills of 'the Rocky Mountains and the far-oh' shores of Hudson Bay. It remained under the rule of France until 1760. When Vaudreu/il capitulated to General Amherst and the ancient regime came to an end. Three years later. By the treaty of Paris, France ceded Canada to Great Britain, and the French Canadians became British subjects. The town was occupied for a time, in 1775; by the Americans, under General Montgomery, who after wards was slain in a gallant but unsuccessful assault upon Quebec; and here in the old Chateau de Ramezay. The home of the old Governors, lived Benjamin Franklin, Samuel Chase and Rev. Charles Carroll, the American Commissioners who came to negotiate= the cession of the country to the United States.
