"All the lands surrounding Green Bay are so flat that there is no sort of view, unless it be that of Fort Howard, which is occupied by some American companies. All the military posts in this lost country have no other object than to hold the Indians in respect and to expel them always further and further. In this respect the American army has little to do; the Indians are in general resigned to their lot. . . ."
Beaumont (Pierson 305)
