A fierce cry of rage rose from the pirates; they placed ladders against the traders bow and some of the boldest sprang on her deckothers followed. Ragueneau, Relation des Hurons, 1650, 20.

 La Salle, when at Mackinaw, on his way to Quebec, in 1682, had been recalled to the Illinois, as we have seen, by a threatened Iroquois invasion. There is before me a copy of a letter which he then wrote to Count Frontenac, begging him to send up more soldiers to the fort, at his (La Salle's) expense. Frontenac, being about to sail for France, gave this letter to his newly arrived successor, La Barre, who, far from complying with the request, withdrew La Salle's soldiers already at the fort, and then made its defenceless state a pretext for seizing it. This statement is made in the memoir addressed to Seignelay, before cited.

The season was late, and they were eager to hasten forward that they might reach Quebec in time to return to France in the autumn ships. There was not a day to lose. They bade farewell to Bellefontaine, from whom, as from all others, they had concealed the death of La Salle, and made their way across the country to Chicago. Here they were detained a week by a storm; and when at length they embarked in a canoe furnished by Bellefontaine, the tempest soon forced them to put back. On this, they abandoned their design, and returned to Fort St. Louis, to the astonishment of its inmates. slides have taken place on a great scale is very distinct at
* The king had sent out more emigrants than he hadThree years afterwards, a paper was printed by the Jesuits of Paris, called Instruction pour les Pres de nostre Compagnie qui seront enuoiez aux Hurons, and containing directions for their conduct on this route by the Ottawa. It is highly characteristic, both of the missionaries and of the Indians. Some of the points are, in substance, as follows.You should love the Indians like brothers, with whom you are to spend the rest of your life.Never make them wait for you in embarking.Take a flint and steel to light their pipes and kindle their fire at night; for these little services win their hearts.Try to eat their sagamite as they cook it, bad and dirty as it is.Fasten up the skirts of your cassock, that you may not carry water or sand into the canoe.Wear no shoes or stockings in the canoe; but you may put them on in crossing the portages.Do not make yourself troublesome, even to a single Indian.Do not ask them too many questions.Bear their faults in silence, and appear always cheerful.Buy fish for them from the tribes you will pass; and for this purpose take with you some awls, beads, knives, and fish-hooks.Be not ceremonious with the Indians; take at once what they offer you: ceremony offends them.Be very careful, when in the canoe, that the brim of your hat does not annoy them. Perhaps it would be better to wear your night-cap. There is no such thing as impropriety among Indians.Remember that it is Christ and his cross that you are seeking; and if you aim at anything else, you will get nothing but affliction for body and mind.
