The Great importance of Cape Breton, demonstrated and exemplified, by extracts from the best writers, French and English, who have treated of that colony the whole containing, besides the most accurate descriptions of the place, a series of the arguments that induced the French Court to settle and fortify it: the plan laid down for making the establishment, and the great progress made in execution of that plan : with the reasons that induced the people of New-England to subdue this formidable and dangerous rival, and that should determine the British nation never to part with it again, on any consideration whatever : in this pamphlet is included all that Father Charlevoix says of this island in his celebrated History of New-France, lately published, in three volumes in quart.
