[Dearborn's "Journal while on Arnold's Expedition to Quebec" mentioned above, journals which he kept at various times from July 1776 to March 1783, are published in Proc. Mass. Hist. Soc., ser. 2, vol. III (1886—87). Another portion of his journals is included in Jours. of the Military Expedition of Maj-Gen. John Sullivan against the Six Nations of Indians in 1779 (1887), ed. by Frederick Cook, pp. 62—80. For other accounts of the march to Quebec consult Justin H. Smith, Arnold's March from Cambridge to Quebec (1903) and The Struggle for the Fourteenth Colony (2 vols., 1907). Of Dearborn's performances in the War of 1812 the best account is in Henry Adams, Hist. of the U. S.. vols. VI and VII (1890—91). Dearborn's side of the case was presented by his son, Gen. H. A. S. Dearborn, in Defence of Gen. Henry Dearborn against the Attack of Gen. William Hull (1824). See also Jos. Dow, "The Dearborns of Hampton, N. H.," in The Hist. of Hampton, N. H. (1893).]J.W.P.
