54   MILITARY HISTORY OF CANADA

hostilities terminated with the signing of the Treaty of Ryswick, May 7th, 1697, the Hudson's Bay Company found itself shorn of all of its old trading forts, with the exception of Fort Albany.

The Treaty of Ryswick was scarcely signed before new trouble arose between Frontenac and the Governor of New York over the settlement of the Iroquois affairs, and while correspondence on the subject was still in progress, Count Frontenac breathed his last at Quebec on the 28th of November, 1698, after an illness of a few days' duration. With his death ended one of the most notable chapters in the military history of Canada.
