Notes
  • The authorship of the work was denied by Tonti, who asserted "qu'elle n'étoit point de lui, mais d'un aventurier parisien, qui l'avoit composée sur de mauvais mémoires, & la lui avoit attribuée, pour lui donner cours". Cf. Charlevois, Histoire ... de la Nouvelle France, t. 2, 1744, p. 260. The compiler, however, probably based his narrative on some of Tonti's letters. Cf. Harrisse, Notes pour servir à l'histoire ... de la Nouvelle-France, 1872, p. 169-171; and Margry, Relations et mémoires inédits, 1867, p. 1-36.
