This work, translated from the English edition of the same year by Edmond Genet, discusses the trouble between England and France, which was caused by the French seizure of those British citizens from the American colonies who happened to be trading with the Indians along the Ohio River. These men were brought to Quebec and imprisoned there. This was, of course, but one manifestation of the friction arising from the competition along the trade routes during these critical years.
