Journal of an American Prisoner at Fort Malden and Quebec in the War of 1812

by James Reynolds

The book containing this journal is an ordinary pocket memorandum or account book measuring 6 x 4 inches and covered with split calf. The journal opens the day of the author's capture, and closes on the day he receives orders at Quebec to prepare to leave for Boston. The author's name is nowhere to be found in the book, and several pages at the beginning have been cut out, evidently by the original owner.
