V2 as a step towards taking Quebec; then Ticonderoga, that thorn in the side of the northern colonies; and lastly Fort Duquesne, the Key of the Great West. He recalled Loudon, for whom he had a fierce contempt; but there were influences which he could not disregard, and Major-General Abercromby, who was next in order of rank, an indifferent soldier, though a veteran in years, was allowed to succeed him, and lead in person the attack on Ticonderoga.  Pitt hoped that Brigadier Lord Howe, an admirable officer, who was joined with Abercromby, would be the real commander, and make amends for all shortcomings of his chief. To command the Louisbourg expedition, Colonel Jeffrey Amherst was recalled from the German war, and made at one leap a major-general.  He was energetic and resolute, somewhat cautious and slow, but with a bulldog tenacity of grip. Under him were three brigadiers, Whitmore, Lawrence, and Wolfe, of whom the youngest is the most noteworthy. In the luckless Rochefort expedition, Colonel James Wolfe was conspicuous by a dashing gallantry that did not escape the eye of Pitt, always on the watch for men to do his work.

 "En partant de Canada, j'ay laiss une trs grande disposition attirer au Christianisme la plus grande partie des sauvages Abenakis qui abitent les bois du voisinage de Baston. Pour cela il faut les attirer la mission nouvellement tablie prs Qubec sous le nom de S. Fran?ois de Sale. Je l'ai vue en peu de temps au nombre de six cents ames venues du voisinage de Baston. Je l'ay laisse en estat d'augmenter beaucoup si elle est protege; j'y ai fait quelque dpense qui n'est pas inutile. La bonne intelligence que j'ai eue avec ces sauvages par les soins des Jsuites, et surtout des deux pres Bigot frres a fait le succs de toutes les attaques qu'ils ont faites sur les Anglois cet est, aux quels ils ont enlev 16 forts, outre celuy de Pemcuit (Pemaquid) ou il y avoit 20 pices de canon, et leur ont tu plus de 200 hommes."
