"...Un autre détail précieux que nous retrouvons dans cet ouvrage, et que les historiens ne donnent pas, c'est celui des noms non moins glorieux des compa- ‘ gnons de Dollard. Ils sont partis vingt pour cette ex pédition, tous également intrépides, dévoués et déter minés, tous des jeunes gens. Trois d' entre eux, Nicolas Du Val, Mathurin Soulard et Blaise Juillet périrent dès le début de l'ex- pédition, le 19 avril, à l'île St-Paul, près de Montréal, dans une rencontre avec un parti d'Iroquois."
