The vessel of La Salle, on Lake Erie; built early in 1667, at the mouth of Cayuga Creek, not far below the site of Buffalo, and near the foot of Squaw Island.
She was armed with a battery of seven small cannon and some muskets, and floated a flag bearing the device of an eagle.
In August, the same year, she sailed for the western end of Lake Erie.
This was the beginning of the commerce on the Great Lakes.
