A few years ago some movement was for the first time made to erect a suitable monument to the memory of Minuit.
Minuit's preparations for defence were not confined to fortifying the land.
As soon as Minuit had bought the island, he organized a government.
Chronometers were with Minuit attractive and yet awe-giving subjects.
Governor Minuit built a fortification at the southern end of the island, and called it New Amsterdam.
Minuit—c'tait l'heure effrayante entre toutes, l'heure des apparitions, l'heure des malfices.
Matters were patched up for the time, and Minuit was permitted to return to Holland.
Jumpin' to my feet I made things fly for a Minuit, pilin' up the killed and wounded in a promiscous heap.
Le Cur restait dans son confessional jusqu' Minuit, quelquefois jusqu' une heure de matin.
Minuit died in 1641, and the Swedish government proceeded to place the colony on a permanent footing, and called it "New Sweden."
