The Rev. Peter Fontaine of Virginia wrote:  Many base wretches amongst us take up with Negro women, by which means the country swarms with mulatto bastards, and these mulattoes, if but three generations removed from the black father or mother, may, by the indulgence of the laws of the country, intermarry with the white people and actually do so every day.   Now, if instead of this abominable practice, which hath polluted the blood of many amongst us, we had taken Indian wives in the first place, it would have made them some compensation for their lands.  We should become rightful heirs to their lands and should not have smutted our blood.

A French officer said:  They (Metis & Coureurs des Bois) are not thrifty and take no care for the future, being too fond of their freedom and their independence.  They want to be well thought of and they know how to make the most of themselves.  They endure hunger and thirst patiently, many have been trained from infancy to imitate the Indians whom ,with reason, they hold in high regard.  They try to strive to gain their esteem and to please them.  Many of them speak their language, having passed part of their life amongst them at the trading posts. 

The French are building a trading post at Moose Lake.
