Letter from E. B. Brown to Gen. Joseph Brown

Wing was one of those men whose enlarged views, sterling integrity, enterprise, intelligence, and accomplishments as a gentleman and lawyer was a host in himself when great work was to be done. His relations to the government as a particular friend of Gov. Cass, and afterwards the second delegate to congress, gave him a position where his consummate tact and genial manners enabled him to exert in the most efficient manner his great influence for the good of the territory. Musgrove Evans, an educated man, engineer and surveyor, had had much ¦experience in his profession and the wants of a people in a new country, having been the agent of Count LeRay de Chamount, a French gentleman of rank, who came to this country with Lafayette, and who served as his aid in the war of the revolution, and who owned a large tract of land on and near the bay and town bearing his name at the head of lake Ontario,
