Notes

The sheet has been removed from its mount, the centre of the mount cut away, and the sheet tipped back on to its mount, probably during conservation in 1960. A pen & ink and wash version by Peachey of the same view is in Library and Archives Canada (see 'Archives Canada Microfiches', Microfiche 2, No. 1; Neg. No. C-45560). Inscribed in ink, mount l.l.: James Peachey 1785; b.: A View of the Bridge Built over Riviere de Loup, By Order of General Haldimand in 1780,
