Página 191 - ... this country with their furs and we should visit them to enrich Heaven with the glorious spoils that we should wrest from the powers of Hell."14 And again the Jesuit Fathers write, "Truly, our hearts bleed when we see ourselves at the gate of so fair a harvest and unable to enter; when we see so many fall into Hell, when they are so near the Kingdom of Heaven. And what is the cause of all of this? A little handful of Iroquois who all together would not equal a thousandth part of those whose salvation...
Página 225 - ... must be separated from Groeslande (Greenland) by some strait, of which a good part has already been discovered; and that it only remains now to push on some degrees farther, to enter nothing less than the Japan sea. In order to make the passage of Hudson strait, this is to be attempted only in the months of August and September ; for during these months only, the passage is less blocked with ice. "But enough for the present. If the Iroquois permit, we shall be fully able to go and enlighten ourselves...
Página 205 - Andastogehronnons waged such energetic warfare against them during ten years that they were overthrown for the second time and their nation rendered almost extinct, or at least so humiliated that the mere name Algonkin made them tremble, and his shadow seemed to pursue them to their very firesides. That was at the time when the Dutch took possession of these regions and conceived a fondness for the beavers of the natives, some thirty years ago; and in order to secure them in greater number they furnished...
Página 20 - Son cœur débordera un jour de reconnaissance à la pensée de tout ce qu'il doit aux Jésuites, et il écrira à leur Général, à Rome : " Dieu seul qui sonde les reins et les cœurs, et qui pénètre jusqu'au fond de mon âme, sait combien j'ai d'obligation à votre Compagnie, qui m'a réchauffé dans son sein, lorsque j'étais enfant, qui m'a nourri de sa doctrine salutaire dans ma jeunesse, et qui depuis lors n'a cessé de m'encourager et de me diriger .... Je vous conjure de ne point voir,...
Página 191 - Iroquois, who, like an obtrusive phantom, besets us in all places. They prevent the tribes from five or six hundred leagues about us from coming down hither, laden with furs that would make this country overflow with immense riches — as was done in a single journey which some of those Nations undertook this year — although secretly, and, as it were, by stealth, from fear of their foes.
Página 22 - J'ai vu ici et j'ai admiré les travaux de vos Pères; ils ont réussi non-seulement auprès des néophytes qu'ils ont tirés de la barbarie et amenés à la connaissance du seul vrai Dieu , mais encore auprès des français auxquels par leurs exemples et la sainteté de leur vie, ils ont inspiré de tels sentiments de piété , que je ne crains pas d'affirmer en toute vérité que vos Pères sont ici la bonne odeur de JésusChrist, partout où ils travaillent.
Página 207 - Nations with whom they have been at war; it has also put into their heads that idea of sovereign sway to which they aspire, mere barbarians although they are, with an ambition so lofty that they think and say that their own destruction cannot occur without bringing in its train the downfall of the whole earth. But what is more astonishing is, that they actually hold dominion for five hundred leagues around, although their numbers are very small...
Página 20 - ... point voir, dans cette expression de mes sentiments de reconnaissance , le simple désir de remplir un devoir de convenance; c'est du fond de mon cœur que je vous parle. Je sens qu'il m'est impossible de rendre de dignes actions de grâces à des hommes qui m'ont appris à aimer Dieu et ont été mes guides dans la voie du salut et des vertus chrétiennes. Si tant de bienfaits reçus dans le passé m'ont attaché à votre Compagnie , de nouveaux liens viennent encore resserrer ces relations...
Página 219 - June of the year one thousand six hundred and fifty-eight, from the lake of the Ouinipegouek, which is strictly only a large bay in lake Huron. It 1 Probably Father Druillettes. is called by others 'the lake of the stinkards,' not because it is salt, like the water of the Sea, — which the Savages call Ouinipeg, or 'stinking water...
