Abstract:

Six documents on French colonial Louisiana and other parts of America during the years 1729-1755, collected by Malesherbes, and transcribed by his secretaries from the original unpublished mss., probably around 1760.

"Journal des operations ..." (leaves 1-76), recounts Régis du Roulet's journey (1729-1733) to the Choctaw country around Mobile, undertaken at the request of Etienne de Périer, commandant general of Louisiana, supposedly to rid the Choctaw villages of English traders. In fact, Périer really wanted the Choctaws to trade with him in New Orleans rather than with the commandant at Mobile, Diron d'Artaguiette. The anonymous "Voyage de la Louisiane dans l'interieur ..." (leaves 84-142), documents a visit to Indian villages around Mobile between Apr.-Aug. of 1732, and includes a census of the villages, their chiefs, and the number of warriors in each village. "Journal historique des hostilités commités par les anglois contre las acadiens francois" (leaves 144-149), and "Addition au journal de M. Daudin, missionnaire d'Annapolis Royal ..." (leaves 156-162), by the abbé Daudin, detail the unjust treatment of the Acadians by their British conquerors between 1754 and 1755. "Extrait d'une conversation avec M. du Pavillon sur les Antilles" (leaves 172-173), is an excerpt from Malesherbes' conversation with a certain M. du Pavillon about the economic situation of the Antilles. Finally, "Deduction du droit que pretendent avoir les anglois de naviguer a la Baye de Campeche ..." (leaves 174-180), describes the consequences for the French if the English, now engaged in cutting wood along the Mexican coast in the Bay of Campeche, and in Laguna de Terminos, were to establish a trading settlement in the Yucatan.
