Day 136, August 5

More than a little startled, Captain Drolet and his orderly found themselves given seats of honor at the festivitiesr.  After the services, he was invited to be a guest of honor at a special banquet.    He was offered drink after drink to toast the Queen, the new American president, the Colonies, and many other things.

With his belly full of celebratory drinks, he became inebriated.  Men placed him gently back in his wage, and the orderly drove him back to the Canadian barracks.  The captain did not conquer any of the United States, but he apparently had a great deal of fun.
