large stone

of Wales Fort , a large stone fort on the western peninsula at the mouth of the river. In 1782 the fort was captured by the French, led by La Pérouse (Jean-François de Galaup, comte de La Pérouse). Since the British, under Samuel Hearne, were greatly outnumbered, they surrendered without firing a shot. The leaders agreed that Hearne would be released and given safe passage to England, along with 31 British civilians, in the sloop ''Severn'', on condition that he immediately publish his story ‘A Journey to the Northern Ocean’. In return, the British promised that the same number of French prisoners would be released and a British navigator familiar with the waters safely conduct the French from Hudson’s Bay at a time of year when the French risked becoming trapped in winter ice.
