CHARLES IX. AND PHILLIP II. * The Jesuits were afterwards told by Hurons, captive among
The town of Ossossan, or Rochelle, stood, as we have seen, on the borders of Lake Huron, at the skirts of a gloomy wilderness of pine. Thither, in May, 1637, repaired Father Pijart, to found, in this, one of the largest of the Huron towns, the new mission of the Immaculate Conception.  The Indians had promised Brbeuf to build a house for the black-robes, and Pijart found the work in progress. There were at this time about fifty dwellings in the town, each containing eight or ten families. The quadrangular fort already alluded to had now been completed by the Indians, under the instruction of the priests.  *** Edit de Cration du Conseil Suprieur de Quebec.
"I thought you were men; I thought you would hold fast to your word: but I find you children, without truth. You call yourselves my friends, yet you break faith with me. Still I would not incommode you; and if you cannot give me four canoes, two will Serve." Dablon, Relation, 1672, 24.

The humble abb was next transported into the terrestrial paradise of Monsieur de Bernires. It is thus that I call, as it is fitting to call it, that famous Hermitage of Caen, where the seraphic author of the Christian Interior (Bernires) transformed into angels all those who had the happiness to be the companions of his solitude and of his spiritual exercises. It was there that, during four years, the fervent abb drank the living and abounding waters of grace which have since flowed so benignly over this land of Canada. In this celestial abode his ordinary occupations were prayer, mortification, instruction of the poor, and spiritual readings or conferences; his recreations were to labor in the hospitals, wait upon the sick and poor, make their beds, dress their wounds, and aid them in their most repulsive needs. *
