Not illustrated. 1888 edition. Excerpt: ... considering that no private communication should be received, where the character of an officer was at stake, placed the letter in the hands of those implicated, and asked for an explanation. The officers easily established the fact, that they were constant attendants at church. De Champigny, in recording the fact, evidently thought it perfectly justifiable for the Bishop to make an underhand report, and could not understand de Frontenac's loyalty of character, in declining to receive it in that form. These petitions were referred to France. An extraordinary proceeding on the part of the Bishop was his attack on de Callieres. Like de Frontenac, he was a friend of the Recollets, and it was their services which he attended. On an occasion of the admission of some novices, de Callieres, then Governor of Montreal, was officially present. The position taken by him in the church was displeasing to the Bishop, who was performing the ceremony. De Callieres was kneeling at his PrU-Dieu when the Bishop approached him, and told him that he was occupying a place which belonged only to M. de Fron-tenac. De Callieres claimed, that as Governor of Montreal he had the right to be where he was. The Bishop indignantly answered that if de Callieres retained the position, he would himself retire. De Callieres remarked, that he could do as he saw fit, upon which the Bishop angrily left the church, and the superior of the Recollets, Father Joseph, completed the ceremony. Part. MS., Vol. VII., page 11o. The Bishop ordered the Prie-Dieu to be removed. De Callieres had it replaced, and marched a guard to the church to protect it. The Bishop laid the church under edict. The matter not being accommodated, the church was opened by the Recollets on their own authority. more
