The Hospital nuns sent us letters of compliment very early in the morning; and the Ursulines sent us some beautiful presents, with candles, rosaries, a crucifix, etc., and, at dinner-time, two excellent pies.

The book is largely sourced from the writings of FranÃ§ois Le Mercier a principle member of the Jesuit mission to New France and held the title of Rector at the Jesuit college in Quebec and the General Superior of the missions in New France from 1653 to 1656 and again from 1665 to 1671 when he was appointed procurator and primary of the Jesuit college in Quebec which he held for a year before returning to France. Le Mercier left a large amount of records, most included in the series Relations of the Jesuits. They consist of letters or extracts of letters, as well as short stories or parts of stories from his hand. Other sources and background information is drawn from a range of French letters and articles from the era as well as historical documents. It refers often to the writings of French explorer Samuel de Champlain who was the first to explore New France and encounter the Huron people. Bookseller Inventory # 17130
