Excerpt from The French at Boston During the Revolution: With Particular Reference to the French Fleets and the Fortifications in the Harbor
From this time on, and so long as the French remained in power, the attitude of the English colonists of Mas sachusetts to their northe... rn neighbors, when not that of actual hostility - as during the cruel wars in which the two peoples became engaged was, to say the least, one of suspicion. And that curious episode in the history of Massachusetts, when its rulers were induced to take sides with La Tour in his row with d'aulnay, is probably not an exception. With the British masters of Canada, France ceased to menace the colonies. Frenchmen were then looked at in a different light, and upon the outbreak of the Revolution the whole American people turned to them for aid.
