A Rusty Old Sword That Was
Used at Quebec
Carried by an American Officer
Who Followed Gen
Fine Wheat Yield
Cadiz Ky July 19 Corre
spondence As anything thatper
tains to war seems to be of special
interest to the reading public now
perhaps it would not be out the
line of general interest to mention
an old war relic that I have It is
an old sword that was carried by
my great grand father Alexander
Fraser in the war between France
and England or what is commonly
known as the French and Indian
war and with which he scaled the
Hights of Abraham with Gen Wolfe
in that memorable battle of Quebec
which was foujrht on the 13th of
September 1759 between Generals
Wolfe nnd Montcalm
The blade of the sword is now
30 inches long and is straight It
is ornamented with the picture of a
fox engraved on either side near
the hilt the hill is about 6 inches
long with a common steel guard
The sword was originally much
longer than it is now and had a
very large ana elaborately iinisneu
steel guard on the hilt which com
pletely protected the hand from any
blow of the enemy But some time
prior to the late civil war my father
loaned it to a gentleman who was
Captain of a company of militia or
home guards as I belive they were
then called and he had it cut off
and the present handle put on it
There is no scabbard with it and
the blade not having been very
well protected is somewhat rusted
Jtieretoiore it has not been appre
ciated as highly perhaps as it
should have been but now since
the tocsin of war has again sound
ed in our land and the heart of
every true American is stirred with
a feeling of patriotism the old
blade which once helped to de
fend our beloved country against a
foreign foe is very highly prized
and if circumstances would permit
I dont know that I would have any
very serious objections to hacking
a few Spaniards with it myself
Yours Respectfully
C B Fraser
