      1690: The third expedition, meditated by Frontenac, was sent against Falmouth. The greater part of the Frenchmen were from Québec, under one M. de Portneuf; 55 men were mustered at Trois-Rivières, of whom 25 were Algonquins and Sokokis. To these were united an unknown number of Indians from the eastward, under Castine and Madockawando.

      Madockawando made good his threat, in part, by coming at the head of four hundred warriors, as he had said he would. Moxus and Egeremet were with him, the former burning to wipe away the disgrace of his defeat (failed attack in June 1691 against the Storer garrison at Wells defended by Captain James Converse with 40 soldiers); the latter as eager for English scalps as he had been ever since the kidnapping of his friends at Black Point, five years before. Joined to this formidable body of savages was a small band of Canadians, commanded by Portneuf, an officer assigned to the expedition by his superiors, active in setting it on foot, skilled in border warfare, and now exercising as much authority as a horde of undisciplined savages were disposed to yield to a white man. With Portneuf were Baron St. Castin, a gentleman by birth, and a savage from choice; also one La Brognerie, and one or two other French officers.
