Jim Sellers--if you're still there, this e-mail is for you. A researcher of
the Noel family contacted me about James Trabue's narrative of his escape
from Montreal. Following is the message:

My gggg grandfather was Campbell Lefever, who is listed as a prisoner in
Montreal in 1780 along with your relatives. Why I am writing is about the
James Trabue escape story. My relative told the story that he too escaped
from prison in Montreal, and I believe he was captured along with Alex Noel.
Do you have a copy of the Draper Manuscript of this story, as in your
website you leave out a section concerning Noel's capture. Thank you for
Jim, if you can help this person, I'd appreciate it.
