His knowledge of the character, customs, and domestic life of the Indians was therefore the most thorough and intimate. His relations are characterized by candor and intelligence, tinged a little with the disappointments, which most of the servants of the Company who have written accounts of their experiences, seem to have suffered."

(Volney). – Besonders interessant ist das umfangreiche "W├Ârterbuch" (S. 271-334) der Chippeway-Sprache und anderer indianischer Dialekte. – Chavanne 4466; Sabin 41881.
