The back page has a letter from Montreal that begins: "The case of the poor Canadians is really deplorable, occasioned by the bankruptcy of the crown of France...Montreal in general is a well built town...The people here are extravagantly fond of dress: a stranger would take Montreal to be a city inhabited by none but the rich and idle; they are all finely powdered, walk with their hats under their arms, and wear long coats adorned with tinsel lace..." with more on this.
