he is so vain of his penmanship. He al

quently he sent him to France to prepare
for holy orders. After spending several
years in the seminaries, having completed
Ins "studies, the young'= man came to
'Charlestown,and the Bishop ordained him,
gave him faculties, and sent him on the
mission among his brethrdn, but, strange
to say, they received hini very coldly, and
gaire him to understand that they did not
want-him, that Itliey 'preferred white shep
herdi. This greatly disc:out:aged him, but
