Description Text: "The President and Representatives of the French-speaking population of Rupert's Land in Council…do extend the hand of friendship to you our friendly Inhabitants, and in doing so invite you to send twelve Representatives from the following places…." The copy in the Manitoba Archives has a manuscript word "fellow" inserted before and above "Inhabitants" and brackets around the clause "the Invaders of our rights being now expelled." Dr Walter Brown, proprietor of the <i>Nor'-Wester </i>, refused to print the broadside and was held prisoner while it was run off by Riel's men. For facsimile <i>see </i>Bruce Peel, <i>Early printing in the Red River Settlement 1859-1870 </i>, page 6.
