"History of Trempealeau County Wisconsin, 1917":
-As transcribed from page 56
To succeed Linctot in the post of the Sioux the governor-general of New France chose Jacques Ie Gardeur, sieur de St. Pierre, sending him with a party of twenty-two men to make their way to the upper Mississippi. This small convoy reached its destination late in 1735, and early the following spring St. Pierre determined to remove the post twenty-five leagues (about sixty miles) higher up the Mississippi.23 There for a year they held a hostile tribe at bay, employing every device of strategy and dissimulation and finally, on May 30, 1737, abandoned the post with all its goods and belongings in order to save their lives.24
