Title on cover: The Queen versus Louis Riel, 1885.
This is not a sympathetic treatment of Riel. After an examination of the evidence, Guillet comes to the conclusion that Riel was fairly tried, convicted, and condemned to death, that he was of sane mind in both medical and legal interpretations of that term, and that he was justly hanged.
