A French raiding party set fire to the sloop 'Lord Loudoun' on the night of 22/23 March 1757, having burned storehouses and other boats during previous attacks. One of the garrison recalled they 'could not see them until they had put the sloop on fire' which 'gave us such light that we could see.... we fired among them very smartly, and killed some, but as their custom is to take as good care of the dead, as of the living, we can't tell what number we killed.'

The Abenaki warriors were fascinated by the French siege works and great artillery pieces at Fort William Henry in August 1757. 'They were constantly around our gunners because they admired their dexterity. But their admiration was not passive. They wanted to try everything to make themselves more useful. They said they wished to become cannoniers; so they could distinguish themselves. After having fired a cannon for himself, and hitting a corner of the fort one had achieved his goal.' Impressed with his skill the French gunners tried to persuade him to try another shot but he refused. With his fellow warriors looking on with admiration 'he said the reason for his refusal was that the first was so perfect he did not want to hazard the glory in a second attempt'.
