They returned in 1656, accompanied by fifty canoes, loaded with furs from that country, and two hundred and fifty savages.

ing :-Father Charles Albanel and the Sieur Denys de St. Simon, here referred to, were so long delayed in awaiting the Intendant's letters above mentioned, that they were compelled to winter near Lake St. John-their journey, so far, having been by Tadoussac up the Saguenay. They resumed it in June of 1672, and on the 18th of that month entered the great Lake of the Mistassins, having had friendly conference on the way with a large party of the Indians of that name, who besought the missionary to stay among them. He advised them to continue their custom of trading at Lake St. John, where they would always, as theretofore, find goods and meet a missionary. On the 25th of June, our travellers reached Lake Nemiscau, towards Hudson's Bay, and, a few days afterwards, met some Indians who had sent a deputation to Quebec, the year before, to beg for a missionary, and who received them with joy. They then proceeded down the river and entered Hudson's Bay. At several points they made acts of taking possession, which they, as well as the chiefs of several nations who were assembled, signed.
