Quoted by John Winslow Acadia; Sketches of a Journey. P.52 / Journal of Colonial Winslow, published in 1883 and 1885 in volumes III and IV of the Nova Scotia Historical Society's collections

"Gentlemen, I have received from His Excellency Governor Lawrence the King's commission which I have in my hand and by whose orders you are conveyed together to manifest to you His Majesty's final resolution to the French inhabitants of this his province of Nova Scotia who for almost half a century have had more indulgence granted them than any of his subjects in any part of his Dominions. What you have made of them you yourself best know."
