The Sillery Indians receive high praise for their fine voices and their devout manner of chanting the church hymns. These savages are little inclined to intemperance; I wonder that among so great a number of savages there are not 10 who give me trouble with regard to drunkenness. Bigot acknowledges his obligations to the intendant, Duchesneau, in aiding his efforts to prevent excesses among his savages.<br><br>About the Publisher<br><br>Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
