Excerpt from The Acadian Proscript: A Historical Drama in Five Acts Large, ¿orid, pompous at times, rather illiterate, affable, vain of his attire and vainer of his pedigree and although American born, a loyalist to the end. Much of his speech here is historical and his dramatic action closely follows the written record. His still extant portrait hangs on the walls of the Mass. Historical Society, in whose archives also is to be found Winslow's Jour nal, giving in awful detail the primary facts of the unhappy part he took in the horrible Acadian Deportation. He died, I believe, during the American Revolution, a political refugee; forsaken, heart-broken and disgraced. The descendants of La Tourmente still hold his name in execration, a fate he does not at all deserve. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
