"The fort is of wood, built in a most masterly manner. It has five Bastions, mounts 105 guns, and has casements for 4,000 Men, and to hold provisions de Guerre et de Bouche for four months. Within the Fort are good Stone Barracks for Officers and Men which ? would conveniently contain 500 men."
Journal of Lord Adam Gordon August 1765

"There is a Large Fort begun. The Foundation is laid ? built with timber and earth and is 25 feet thick. It is to be built twenty feet high. The inside of the Fort contains four and three quarters acres, and the trench around the fort is about 30 feet wide and is to be 14 feet deep. Besides, there are three small forts a-building, and I believe we shall be here until the cold weather drives us away. Our men are kept very hard at work Every Day; not time so much as to wash their clothes ?."
