Montreal, 1535-1914 By William Henry Atherton
"I will here introduce the reader to what are known as the "Relations."' These
are a series of letters or reports which were written by the Jesuit missionaries
in Nouvelle France, starting from the arrival of Fathers Lalemant and Lejeune
and continued long after. They have now been collected and published, and are
the most valuable historical sources of this early period. They are written to the
superiors of their order in France, sent by the Company's boats, and were the
source of encouragement and inspiration to their religious brethren who eagerly
read them and desired to follow in their writers' footsteps in the mission field
of New France. Many others besides the Jesuits saw these letters. The news
contained in them was eagerly looked for by many good ladies and gentlemen
of France who were interested in the progress of this romantic settlement among
the savages in a far-off land. The birth struggles of the new colony, the devooon
and self sacrifices of the pioneers, attracted their imagination and stirred their
sympathy and generosity.1 "
