Letter From Fort Gratiot

Fort Gratiot was located in St. Clair County, Michigan.


"Fort Gratiot, 2nd June, 1827....I came to this place, which is a small settlement on the American side of the lake, to secure provisions and necessaries for the party.  ...I intend to send out an Indian for despatches.  By-the-bye, address me [William Dunlop] as 'Warden of the Forests of the Canada Company, Office, York, U.C.'"
