|dc.description.abstract||Contains a letter by George Prevost, in which he mentions the Battle of the
Thames (Moraviantown) (p. 170). He writes “that on the 5th of October…it was his [Col.
Proctor] intention to take up at the Moravian village on the river Thames, he was attacked by so
overwhelming a force…that the small numbers he had with him, were unable to withstand it.”
He also mentions Tecumseh, stating that “Tecumseh, at the head of 1200 warriors,
accompanied our little army on its retreat from Sandwich; and the Prophet, as well as his
brother Tecumseh, were of the most essential service, in arresting the further progress of the
Americans; but as to the extent of our loss on this occasion, or the particulars of this disastrous
affair, I am, as yet, ignorant”.
