BURNS, John E., Rev. The Abbé Maillard and Halifax. Reprinted from the Report of the Canadian Catholic Historical Association for 1936 - 1937. Pp (2),3-12 including covers. 8vo, stapled wrappers, lettered in black. "This paper is based on the will of the Abbé Maillard, which, with several codicils, is preserved in the Court House at Halifax, and on the Minutes of the Governor's Council, which are to be found in the Archives of Nova Scotia. These documents have been used in an article on Maillard in "Nova Francia", Vol. II, Nos. 3 and 4, by the R. P. Albert Dvid, of the Holy Ghost Fathers. I welcome this opportunity of studying them from a different angle, and of bringing them before an English speaking audience to whom they will be of interest." (p. 3). Abbé Pierre Antoine Simon Maillard (c. 1710 – 12 August 1762)was a French-born Roman Catholic priest. He is noted for his contributions to the creation of a writing system for the Mi'kmaq indigenous people of Î le Royale, Cape Breton Island, Canada. He is also credited with helping negotiate a peace treaty between the British and Mi'kmaq people, which resulted in the Burying the Hatchet Ceremony (Nova Scotia). He was the first Catholic priest in Halifax and is buried in the Protestant church yard of St. Paul's Church (Halifax). Tears along spine, margins browned, else very good.
