In this letter to Cardinal Richelieu (dated August 1, 163 Le Jeune congratulates him on his efforts to root out the Huguenot heresy; thanks him for his kindness, and for evidences Of affection for the Jesuit mission in Canada; and urges the great man to aid the Company Of New France in their colonizing enterprise, for on their success depends that of the mission. The cardinal is reminded how many poor French families might be provided with homes if sent to the New World, where land is abun dant; he is also informed that some savages have been converted to the faith.
