"The life of Sir Howard Douglas revolved around the young colony which became Canada though as a soldier he sawservice on both sides of the Atlantic. Son of a famous saiulor who helped save Quebec during the American Revolutionary War, Howard had set his hearton the sea but his guardians forced him into England's Royal Military Coll ege as an army cadet. From the day of enrolment, his career oscillated between land and water. Before he was twenty, Lieut. Howard Douglas went to Canada as commander of a detachment of a detachment of troops -- with women and children -- sialing to Quebec. When the transport was wrecked on the Newfoundlan coast, the survivors, menaced by panic and mutiny, were held together by Douglas until rescuers landed them safely at Halifax. In the next fewyears, Douglas has a number of strange and vivid adventures; most notable was a dangerous mission among the Indians during which he became a friend of Joseph Brant, War Chief of the Mohawks. WHen, after service under Moore and Wellington in the Peninsular War, he again returned to Canada it was as Lieutenant-Governor of New Brunswick. Those were exciting years in the province -- the time of the Miramichi fire, and of an attempted invasion by filibusters from Maine." - from the dj. Vg in lightly edgeworn dj. 30.00
