The rising country: the Hale-Amherst correspondence, 1799-1825

Front Cover
1799 to 1825 letters between Elizabeth Frances Hale of Quebec City and her brother William, Lord Amherst, Governor General of India. The letters are stylish, witty, dramatic, and intimate. We learn much of the nature of Quebec society during the Napoleonic Wars and the rise of nationalistic fervour. The Society has published 100 titles since 1907 covering the major exploration and surveyors' journals. 25 titles are in print and available.
