Show Summary Details


Two letters written by Father Paul Le Jeune in 1636 are presented, which report back to Old France on what was going on in New France. When Father Le Jeune first arrived in Quebec, he was greeted with great joy and relief by Madame Hébert, widow of Monsieur Hébert, and their children. They had been the first family to settle there. They were devout Catholics and had been frightened and greatly concerned when Quebec had been evacuated by the English in 1634. Le Jeune and Father De Noue reassured them of France's continued concern for her colony, and they reinstated a Catholic presence.
