He encounters highwaymen on a country road, succumbs to a tempting tryst in the spa town of Bath, squanders a new love in London and longs for the higher social station he once enjoyed.

2 JOHNSTON, A.J.B. Endgame 1758 : The Promise, the Glory, and the Despair of Louisbourg's LastDecade. pbk.
Cape Breton University Press, Sydney, N.S., 2007, ISBN:9781897009208 
JOHNSTON, A.J.B. Endgame 1758 : The Promise, the Glory, and the Despair of Louisbourg's Last Decade. Sydney : Cape Breton University Press, (2007). First Edition. Pp (16),[1]-365,(3). Illustrated. Maps. Index. 8vo, illustrated light brown card covers. "The story of what happened at the colonial fortified town of Louisbourg between 1749 and 1758 is one of the great dramas of the history of Canada, indeed North America. The French stronghold on Cape Breton Island, strategically situated near the entrance to the Gulf of St. Lawrence, was from soon after its founding a major possession in the quest for empire. The dramatic military and social history of this short-lived and significant fortress, seaport, and community, and the citizens who madeit their home, are woven together in A. J. B. Johnston’s gripping biograph y of the colony’s final decade, presented from both French and British perspectives. Endgame 1758 is a tale of two empires in collision on the shores of mid-eighteenth-century Atlantic Canada, where rival European visions of predominance clashed headlong with each other and with the region’s Aboriginal peoples. The magnitude of the struggle and of its uncertain outcome colored the lives of Louisbourg’s inhabitants and the nearly thirty thousand combatants arrayed against it. The entire history comes to life in a tale ofwhat turned out to be the first major British victory in the Seven Years’ War. How and why the French colony ended the way it did, not just in June and July 1758, but over the decade that preceded the siege, is a little-known and compelling story." - from the back cover.
