Full text of "Bulletin of the New York Public Library"


This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 

publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing tliis resource, we liave taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 
We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain fivm automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attributionTht GoogXt "watermark" you see on each file is essential for in forming people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liabili^ can be quite severe.

De Villers succeeded Jacques de la Cour as governor in 1701 and in turn 
gave place to De Charanville in 1709. Of the terms of De la Cour and De Villers

important de son administration'* (Notes sur Tisle de la Reunion, 1862, p, 39).

the "Journal" is given practically in full, all paragraph headings being included, 
but a few paragraphs being omitted as matter of routine interest only.

Ordonnance au sujet du feu, 

.Le 3ie. May, 1702: Voyant plusieurs accidens qui sont arrives par le feu, 
par la negligence des habitans, lesquels, soit par malice, ou autrement, mettoient le 
feu dans les paturages, ce qui faisoit mourir tous les bestiaux, jusques la meme. 


que la maison de la Compagnie a plusieurs fois este en danger d'estre brulee, et 
n'en a este garentie, que par le prompt secours, que Ton y a aporte, Je fis vne 
ord(Minance aux habitans par laquelle, il leur estoit Enjoint de prendre garde a 
mettre le feu en aucuns endroits, sous peine a ceux qui y seroient supris, si C'estoit 
des blancs, de six mois de Cachot, et si C'estoit des Noirs, d'avoir le foiiet, et la 
fieur de lys, auec promesse de donner quatre Ecus au denonciateur. 


Vn navire Anglois arrivi a Vjsle de Bourbon. 

Le I7e. de luin, 1702: il parut vn vaisseau de la Nouvelle Compagnie d' 
Angleterre^ Nonune Le Roucq sur les 7. heures du matin, et motiilla le i8e. en 
rade du quartier de St. Paul, sur les trois heures apres midy, duquel vaisseau vint 
a terre vn marchand passager, Nomme Maitre Rayt, et descendit a la Cauerpe, 
qui est a vue des extremites de Tance de St. Paul, m'estant transports du quar- 
tier de St. Denis, ou je demeure, a celuy de St. Paul, et ay ant fait mettre les habi- 
tans sous les armes, j'en Enuoyay vn detachement au lieu, ou estoit descendu led. 
passager, lequel detachement estoit commande par le sieur Jacques Beda, capitaine 
dud. quartier de St. Paul, pour les reconnoitre et sgauoir qui ils etoient, led. pas- 
sager ayant mis pied a terre, led. Beda me Tamena, il me dit qu'ayant manque a 
doubler le Cap, ils auoient este obligez, et meme contraints a relacher a cette Isle, 
et me pria de vouloir bien les y receuoir, et de leur faire foumir les viures, et autres 
necessitez de leur Vaisseau, qu'ils en estoient dans vn extreme besoin, y ayant 
trois ans qu'ils estoient a la Mer, et auoient fait plusieurs differens voyages, soit 
en Chine, Bengale, Suratte, et autres lieux des Indes, que quant au payement, ils 
y satisferoient, comme il leur seroit taxe par moy. Je luy repondis qu'auant de leur 
rien promettre, il estoit de necessite, que je vis leur Commission, que ne les con- 
noissant pas, ils se pourroient dire autres qu'ils n'estoient. Led. Maitre "Rzyt 
m'assura, que j'aurois toute sorte de satisfaction la dessus et s'en retouma a bord 
rendre Compte au Capitaine de ma reponse, sur les cinq heures du soir, Le Capi- 
taine nomme Jean Hanicom, vint luy meme a terre, et me presenta sa Commis- 
sion laquelle ayant veiie, Je promis Capitaine de luy faire foumir tout ce qui 
luy seroit necessaire, assure qu'en pareille occasion, les Anglois auroient les 
memes Egards, pour les vaisseaux franqois, qui se trouueroient obliges a relacher 
dans leurs ports. 

Deux Vaissx, Ecossois arrives a VIsle de Bourbon, 

Le 27e. dud. mois, parut sur les neuf a dix heures du matin deux petits Vais- 
seaux Ecossois, Tvn de 12: pieces de canon nomme le Reitoume, commande par 
Robert Droman, et Tautre vn Brigandin nomme le Comtant, le Nauire moiiilla la 
meme nuit du 2y: sur les 11 : heures du soir, en rade du quartier de St. Paul et le 
brigandin moiiilla le lendemain, 28e. sur les 9 : heures du matin. 

Apres auoir donne mes ordres, touchant le precedent Nauire, Je m'en estois 
TCtoume a St. Denis, mais ayant este informe de Tarriuee de ces deux derniers 


vaisseaux, Je me trouuay oblige de retourner a St. Paul, accompagne du sieur 
Boucher Secretaire de la Royale Compagnie de france, ou estant arriuez, Nous 
apprimes, que le Capitaine du petit Nauire Ecossois estant alle a bord du Vaisseau 
Anglois, pour visiter le Capitaine, et le prier de me le presenter il auoit este arrete 
a bord jusqu'a mon arriuee; aussytost qu'ils la sgeurent le Capne. Anglois, le 
passager, et le Capitaine Ecossois, vinrent tous trois ensemble a terre, L' Anglois 
me pria de faire montrer la Commission a TEcossois, n'ayant pas voulu la luy 
montrer, disant que puisqu'il etoit a vne terre frangoise il la vouloit montrer au 
gouuerneur le premier, ce qu'il fit sur le Champ, mais le Capitaine Angloise, et le 
passager, apres Tauoir aussy leiie, dirent qu'elle ne valoit rien, et que quand meme, 
elle seroit bonne, ils estoient en droit de le prendre, parce qu'il estoit Ecossois, et 
sefoit de bonne prise, et me demanderent si je les voulois prendre, a quoy Je 
repondis que ne connoissant ny les vns ny les autres, J'en entreprendrois rien, que 
je ne pourrois sgauoir laquelle de leurs deux Commissions etoit bonne, ne sgachant 
point lire L' Anglois, joint a ce qu'il n'y auoit personne sur Tlsle, qui le sgeut lire, 
car toutes ces interpretations furent faites en Portuguais par le passager, et par le 
sieur Boucher outre que TEcossois soiitenoit fermement que sa Commission estoit 
bonne. Lorsque les Anglois virent que Je ne voulois rien entreprendre, ils me 
dirent, qu'ils me donneroient vn Certificat comme la Commission de I'ficossois 
estoit fausse, et que pour le prouuer, ils alloient a leur bord chercher la leur, pour 
faire connoitre la difference qu'il y auoit auec celle de Tficossois et s'y en furent 
effectiuement ; mais aussytost qu'ils furent arriuez a leur vaisseau, ils tirerent vn 
coup de canon a balle sur le vaisseau Ecossois, et luy firent amener son pauillon,. 
rficossois qui estoit encor a terre, voyant son nauire, pour ainsy dire, pris, me 
demanda s'il estoit arrete; mais voulant luy faire connoitre comme il estoit vray 
que Je ne participois en rien a Tlnsulte que Ton luy faisoit, Je luy repondis, qu'il 
estoit maitre de s'en aller a son bord, il ne differa pas vn moment a s'embarquer 
dans sa Chaloupe, a laquelle il fit mettre le pauillon deuant, pour faire connoitre 
aux Anglois qu'il ne se rendoit pas; mais aussytost qu'il eut pousse au large, 
TAnglois detacha sa Chaloupe commandee par led. Rayt, et le vint prendre luy 
meme auant qu'il se put rendre a son bord, ce qu'il fit sans beaucoup de peines, 
TEcossois n'ayant dans sa Chaloupe aucunes armes, pour se deflFendre, il n'estoit 
pas difficile non plus au vaisseau Anglois de disposer ainsy de TEcossois, sa force 
estant beaucoup superieure, ayant 40: canons, et TEcossois n'en ayant que 12: ils 
firent ensuite plusieurs voyages au vaisseau Ecossois auec leur chaloupe et en 
amenerent tout TEquipage, qui n'estoit que de 25: hommes. Ensuitte led. Rayt 
vint a terre auec vne Copie de leurs Commissions, qu'il me presenta, Je luy te- 
moignay mon ressentiment sur ce qu'ils venoient de faire, et que cette insulte me 
regardoit, parce qu'ils ne m'auoient pas donne auis qu'ils alloient prendre le vais- 
seau Ecossois, et que de plus meme, il ne leur estoit pas permis de prendre vn 
vaisseau dans vne rade frangoise, il s'excusez la dessus, le mieux qu'il luy fut pos- 
sible, et m'assura que ce vaisseau estoit de bonne prise, Je fis tirer vne copie de sa 
Commission par vn des Ecossois, et ensuite led. Rayt s'en retouma a son bord. 

Pendant tout ce temps la, le brigandin, qui estoit encor fort loin, et ne sgachant 
rien de tout ce qui se passoit, s'approchoit toujours si tost, qu'il fut a portee de 
reconnoitre le vaisseau Anglois, il y enuoya sa Chaloupe, le Capitaine Anglois 


obligea rEcossois d'Ecrire au Capitaine du brigandin nomme Alexandre Stouard 
de venir a bord, et il y vint sur le champ, ct f ut arrete prisonier, et ensuite enuoyer- 
ent aussy prendre son monde, et les mirent tous aux f ers, tant de Tvn que de I'autre 
vaisseau, le reste de la joumee se passer, sans que personne vint a terre, le lende- 
main 296. le Capitaine Anglois, et les deux Capitaines Ecossois y vinrent ensemble, 
€t me saluerent sur le bord de la Mer, ou j'estois auec tous les habitans sous 
les armes, J'auois pris cette precaution de faire prendre les armes aux habitans, ne 
sgachant a quoy aboutiroit, ny quel seroit TEuenement de tout ce stratageme, et 
voyant les deux Capitaines Ecossois TEpee au coste, Je crus qu'il pouvoit bien y 
auoir quelqu' jntelligence entre tous ces Etrangers, et que tout ce qu'ils faisoient 
estoit concerte entr' Eux, C'est ce qui m'obligea a demander au Capitaine Anglois 
si c'estoit la coutume en Angleterre de laisser les epees aux prisonniers, mais que 
cela ne se pratiquoit point en france, L' Anglois me repondit, qu'a cet egard, la 
meme chose s'obseruoit en Angleterre; mais que Ces Messieurs, qu'il me pre- 
sentoit (montrant les deux Capitaines Ecossois) n'estoient point prisonniers, qu'il 
me demandoit excuse, de ce qui s'estoit passe le jour precedent, mais qu'ayant 
examine auec plus d'exactitude les Commissions desd. Ecossois, il les auoit 
trouue parfaitement bonnes, et leur fit des Excuses en ma presence de I'jnsulte 
-qu'il leur auoit faite, et leur declara n'estre point en droit de les jnquieter. tout ce 
discours me confirma encor mieux qu'auparauant dans la pensee que J'auois, 
que ces Messieurs s'entendoient ; mais Je dissimulay, et ordonnay aux habitans 
de se tenir prets au premier commandement, qu'il estoit de leur interest de prendre 
garde que si Ton estoit surpris, que ce seroit eux qui en soufriroient le plus, Je dis 
seulement au Capitaine Anglois, qu'il falloit prendre dans ces sortes d'occasions, 
plus de precautions qu'il n'en auoit eu, que Ton n'jnsultoit point ainsy de propos 
delibere, qu'on n'estoit pas tou jours, quitte pour faire des excuses, et qu'il pouvoit 
bien auoir a repondre en Angleterre, sur ce qui s'estoit passe icy: le Capitaine 
Ajiglois me fit de nouuelles excuses, et ayant encor la Commission de I'ficossois 
dans sa poche, il voulut la luy rendre ; mais I'ficossois luy repartit, qu'il auoit bien 
pu luy oster sa Commission par la force, quoyqu'injustement, mais qu'il ne le 
croyoit pas digne de la luy remettre es mains, et croiroit I'auoir trop achetee, s'il 
luy faisoit I'honneur de la receuoir de luy, mais qu'il la remit entre mes mains, 
qu'il se trouueroit fort honore de la receuoir de moy, L' Anglois le fit, Je la luy 
remis entre les mains, en ayant fait tirer copie, et Je dis au Capitaine Anglois, que 
puisqu'il avoit rendu les vaisseaux Ecossois, il estoit juste qu'il me donna vn certi- 
ficate comme leurs Commissions estoient bonnes, puisque le jour precedent qu'il 
auoit pris les vaisseaux, il s'estoit offert de luy certiffier, comme leurs Commis- 
sions estoient fausses, L' Anglois me donna toutes sortes d'assurances et me promit 
de me donner ce que Je souhaittois et le fit. 

Jusqu'icy, Ton auoit point encor sgeu quel sujet amenoit ces deux derniers 
vaisseaux m'en estant informe, ils me repondirent qu'ils auoient pris cette Isle, 
pour Ste. Apolline, ce qui les auoit oblige a y venir, n'ayant point d'autre occu- 
pation que celle de decouurir des terres, n'estant enuoyes que pour ce sujet mais 
que puisqu'ils auoient de bonheur d'estre tombes a vne jsle frangoise, ils me prioient 
de leur faire donner du rafraichissement, en payant, ce que Je leur promis, mais 
qu'il falloit pour cela qu'ils fussent a St. Denis, parce que le quartier de St. Paul 


ne pouroit pas foumir a tant de vaisseaux, mais cette precaution n'estoit en effet, 
que pour les separer les vns des autres, ils accepterent le party, sur le champ 
mirent a la voile, apres auoir este rendus a leur bord, mais n'ayant pu gagner St, 
Denis, parce que les vents, et les courans se trouuerent contraires, ils furent con- 
traints de reuenir le lendemain au motiillage de St. Paul qu*ils eurent meme bien 
de la peine a regagner, le lendemain de leur retour a St. Paul, ils demanderent a 
vendre quelques marchandises qu'ils auoient dans leur bord, ainsy que quelques 
Negres, mais, Je leur refusay quelqu'jnstances c[u'ils fissent pour cela; sur cela 
les habitans me presenterent requeste, par laquelle ils me representerent le besoin, 
ou ils estoient de Noirs, pour la culture de leurs terres, la Compagnie ne leur en 
ayant point envoye, depuis qu'ils habitoient Tlsle. Je me trouuay oblige de permet- 
tre la vente desd. Noirs et deffendis aux habitans de donner plus de Cent Ecus des 
plus grands et des plus forts, et depuis 40: jusqu'a 60; des autres, ils en ven- 
dirent seize, tant grands que petits, apres quoy ayant pris les viures, et autres 
choses, dont ils auoient besoin ils remirent a la voile, et furent a Madagascar, 
comme Nous Tauons sgeu depuis, Ce f ut le 5 : luillet qu'ils partirent et led. vaisseau 
Anglois ayant aussy pris ses rafraichissems. partit d'jcy la nuit du loe. au lie. 
aoust, et fut a ce que Nous auons pu juger a Maurice, il passa deuant St. Denis a 
deux lieiies de distance de la terre, il salua le pauillon de cinq coups de canons, qui 
luy furent rendus coup pour coup. 


Vn vaisseau fourban arriui a I'jsle de Bourbon 

Le ige. Aoust, 1702: parut vn vaisseau sur les six a sept heures du matin^ 
et moiiilla en la rade du quartier de St. Paul sur les onze heures, ou midy, C'estoit 
le meme Ecossois, qui auoit party d'jcy le Se. luiUet, a Texception qu'il auoit 
change de Capitaine et d'Equipage, car ayant este a Madagascar, il auoit este pris 
par des fourbans, lesquels ayant perdu leur vaisseau a Maurice s'y estoient re- 
f ugiez, les d. fourbans estoient les memes qui auoient passe icy le 2e. auril, auxquels^ 
on auoit refuse azile, la Chaloupe dud. vaisseau vint a terre, dans laquelle estoit 
le Chirurgien, qui estoit TEnuoye de la part de Tfiquipage, kquel estant a terre, 
apres auoir informe les officiers du quartier de la maniere qu'ils auoient enleue 
led. vaisseau a Madagascar, demanda des viures, et de I'Eaiie, les officiers du 
quartier m'ayant fait s^auoir 1' arriuee de ce vaisseau, et pour quel sujet, il venoit,. 
Je me transportay aussytost du quartier de St. Denis, a St. Paul, et leur fis dire 
par mes officiers que Je n'auois pas voulu venir, mais que J'auois ecrit que J'estois 
fort surpris, qu'apres leur auoir refuse vne fois I'azile qu'ils m'auoient demande, 
comme ils s'estoient exposes vne seconde fois a vn refus, et qu'ils pouuoient s'en 
aller, ou bon leur sembleroit, ne leur voulant seulement pas donner vne goute 
d'Eau, sur cette reponse, ils retournerent a bord, et peu de temps apres reuinrent 
a terre, et led. Chirurgien dit aux officiers de la part de Monsieur leur Capne. et 
de tout I'fiquipage, qui estoient tous Anglois, que puisque Je leur refusois des 
rafraichissems. en les payant bien, que j'eus la bonte de ne pas trouuer mauuais^ 


s*ils se mettoient en deuoir, d'en auoir a la faueur de leurs armes, qu'ils estoient 
dans lew vaisseau Cent cinquante hommes, qui sans autre forme alloient mettre 
a terre, les officiers m'ayant fait informer du dessein desd. fourbans, Je leur fis 
dire, qu'ils se donnassent vn peu de patience, que j'allois arriver dans deux heures, 
mais ce delay n'estoit a autre dessein que pour faire prendre les armes aux 
habitans, et se mettre en estat de se deffendre Eux memes, a quoy Je trauaillay sur 
rheure, et les exhortay a bien faire leur deuoir, en les assurant que je leur mon- 
trerois I'exemple a bien deffendre leur biens, auec menaces aussy de casser a ceux 
qui auroient la lachete de reculer, les habitans se consulterent la dessus, et me 
dirent, qu'ils estoient tons gens qui auoient femmes et enfans, qu'il ne s'agissoit 
point dans cette occasion du seruice du Roy, pour lequel ils estoient tons 'prets a 
sacrifier leurs biens, et leurs vies, mais qu*ils ne croyoient pas qu'il y eut de la 
necessite a se faire casser la teste, pour deffendre ce que Ton ne leur demandoit 
qu'en payant, que plus meme, ils ne pouuoient auoir les choses qui leur estoient 
necessaires dans les magazins de la Compagnie sans argent, et que ne se faisant a 
cette Isle aucun commerce qui leur donna moyen d'en acquerir, il falloit le prendre 
d'ou il venoit, quand les besoins le requeroient. Ce furent la leurs raisons, qu'ils 
apuyerent d'vne requete, qu'ils me presenterent, Je la refusay, disant qu'assure- 
ment Je ne donnerois aucune chose auxd. fourbans mais les habitans m'ayant 
d'vne commune voix reparty quHls ne se battroient point, Je me vis oblige a re- 
ceuoir leur requete, ne pouuant sans le secours des habitans m'opposer aux 
menaces desd. fourbans, quoyque mon jnclination m'y porta, Je fis done faire 
signal au bord de la mer, pour parlementer, comme si Je n'eus fait, que d'arriuer, 
ct la Chaloupe estant veniie a terre bien armee, Je leur demanday derechef ce qu'ils 
souhaittoient, ils repondirent, qu'ils ne vouloient quVn peu d'Eau, et des viures, 
Ce que Je leur promis de leur donner, mais auec ces conditions qu'ils ne lais- 
scroient pas de^cendre a terre plus de quatre hommes a la fois, a quoy ils con- 
sentirent, les habitans leur foumirent quelques rafraichissems. et ils remirent a la 
voile la nuit du 29e. au 3oe. du meme mois, sans que Nous ayons sgeu ou' ils 
alloient, quelque chose que Nous ayons pu faire pour le scauoir. 

Dans cette occasion les habitans furent trompes car ils s'attendoient a faire 
de grands profits, mais lesd. fourbans estoient tous gueux, a peine auoient ils de 
quoy payer leurs viures. 


Vn vaisseau pas^e a la Veiie de Ulsle 

Ordonnance au Sujet de la Chasse 

Ije 13^- Septembre, 1702: sur les auis qui me furent donnes de plusieurs 

deeats qui s'estoient faits par les habitans allant a la chasse, et plus particuliere- 

tnent dans la riuiere du Mas, Je fis vne ordonnance portante a ce que les habitans 

ne pouroient aller qu' vne seule fois la semaine a la Chasse comme auparavant, et 

ne Douroient y mener de Chiens, et seroient obliges les dimanches d'auertir TofBcier 


qui seroit de semaine a Ste. Suzanne, a peine aux Contreuenant de payer douze 
Ecus d'amende apliquable Cinq Ecus a TEglise, Cinq a la Compagnie et deux au 
Denonciateur pour la premiere fois, et en cas de recidiue punis corporellement. 


Ordonnance au Sujet du Vol 

Le 22e. Nouembre, 1702 : Ayant eu plusieurs auis, que les habitans se voloient

vne ordonnance par laquelle J'Enjoignois aux habitans de donner leurs soins pour 
decouurir ceux qui voloient, et jmposay la peine a Ceux qui seroient surpris, 
si c'estoit des blancs, d'estre mis pendant vn mois testes et dimanches au Carcan 
auec la peau, ou plume de ce qu'il aura vole pendiie au col pour la premiere fois, 
et en cas de recidiue d'estre enuoyez en f ranee auec leur procez fait, et parfait, et 
si c'estoit des Noirs, d'auoir le fouet, et la fleur de lys pour la premiere fois, et 
pendus en cas de recidiue.

Concession de la pointe du GcUlet a Antoine Cctdet 

Le I4e. Octobre, 1703 : parurent deux vaisseaux, vers la pointe de St. Gilles, 
et vinrent moiiiller sur les quatre heures apres midy, en la rade dud. lieu auec 
pauillon blanc Mon Canot qui estoit alle au lieu apelle les Auirons, chercher de la 
tortile ayant passe a leur veiie en s'en reuenant, ils tirerent vn coup de canon a 
poudre, et mirent pauillon en beme, pour le faire aller a bord, mais les Canottiers 
n'en ayant point Tordre n'en firent aucun semblant, et passerent tout droit, pour 
venir a St. Denis m'auertir de Tarriuee de ces deux vaisseaux; aussytot que Je 
Teus apprise Je partis dans le meme Canot pour me rendre a St. Paul, accompagne 
du sieur Boucher, en Nous y en allant, Nous les vimes qui gagnoient le moiiillage 
de St. Paul lorsque Nous y fumes arriues, Nous aprimes qu'ils auoient enuoye leur 
Chaloupe a la petite ance, ou estoit vn des habitans de St. Paul, nomme Gilles 
Dennemont, auquel ils firent plusieurs demandes touchant Tlsle, sur lesquelles il 
ne leur auoit fait aucune reponse, mais seulement, qu'ils n'estoient pas au moii- 
illage, qii'il falloit aller a St. Paul qui est distancie dud. lieu St. Gilles, et qu'ils y 
trouueroient mes officiers qui leur rendroient raison de ce qu'ils souhaittoient 
sgauoir, ils y furent sur Theure auec trois chaloupes armees, les vaisseaux les 
suiuant a la voile, et ce fut en ce temps la, que Nous les vimes, et le sr. Jacques 
Aubert, capitaine du quartier ayant mettre les habitans sous les armes, voyant 
les trois chaloupes, auec pauillon blanc, qui venoient a St. Paul, s'auanga au bord 
de la mer, accompagne du Sr. Gonneau Enseigne du quartier portant le drapeau, 
lesd. chaloupes estant arrivees a St. Paul, il ne descendit personne a terre ; mais ils 
crierent qu'ils estoient des vaisseaux de la Reine Anne d'Angleterre, qui estoient 
armes, pour chasser les fourbans, et que celuy qui commandoit lesd. Chaloupes, 
estant officier du Roy il falloit, pour qu'il descendit a terre, que Ton enuoya trois 
hommes a bord des Chaloupes, quoyque tous les habitans fussent dans la crainte, 
chacun ayant meme fait transporter son bagage a la montagne; led. Sr. Aubert 
ne laissa pas, que de payer d'effronterie, et repondit que Tofficier descendit luy 
meme a terre, et qu'apres cela, il enverroit vn homme a bord, et que ce n'estoit pas 
la coutume des frangois que de faire les auances aux Etrangers, qui venoient chez 
Eux, et encor Torsque Ton estoit en guerre, sur cette reponse, led. Lieutenant 
descendit a terre, et le Sr. Aubert enuoya vn des habitans qui Tacompagnoient 
a bord de la chaloupe de laquelle estoit descendu led. Lieutenant, lequel 
estant a terre demanda au Sr. Aubert, qui estoit Thomme qu'il auoit enuoy6 


a bord de la Chaloupe, que luy estoit ofiicier du Roy, a quoy il repondit que 
celuy qu'il auoit enuoye estoit aussy mon ofiicier, sur cela led. Lieutenant 
repartit, que tout cela n'estoit que pour la Compagnie et que luy estoit du Roy, 
a quoy le Sr. Aubert repliqua que j'estois gouuerneur pour le Roy, et pour 
la Compagnie Royale, et que les Commissicxis que Je donnois a mes ofiiciers 
venoient de france, mais que J'estois le maitre de les donner a ceux que j'en 
jugeois les plus dignes, de quoy il se trouua satisfait, et dit apres, qu'ils n'estoient 
venus a cette Isle que par hazard, kur dessein estant d'aller a Maurice, mais 
que s'estant trouuez beaucoup plus a Oiiest qu'ils ne pensoient, ils auoient 
tombe stu* cette Isle, mais que quoyque Nous eussions la guerre, leur jntention 
n'estoit pas de faire aucun mal ny dommage a cette Isle, bien loin de la, qu'ils ne 
demandoient qu'a faire vn peu d'Eau, et de bois en payant, a quoy led. Sieur Au- 
bert repondit, que Comme Je n'estois point a St. Paul, il ne luy pouuoit donner 
aucune solution la dessus, mais qu'ils se donnassent la peine d'attendre jusqu'au 
lendemain, que sitost que Je serois arriue, on leur feroit signal au bord de la mer, 
auec le drapeau, pour venir a terre. J'approuuay tout ce que led. Sr. Aubert auoit 
fait dans cette occasion, les Vaisseaux estant motiilles, on leur fit signal, comme on 
leur auoit promis, le meme Lieutenant vint a terre auec les trois memes chaloupes, 
L'orsqu'il fut a terre, J'enuoyay le sieur Boucher a bord des chaloupes pour 
ostage, et ayant demande aud. Lieutenant quel sujet les amenoit, il me repeta les 
memes choses qu'il auoit dites au sieur Aubert y adjoutant qu'il me prioit de ne 
leur pas refuser de I'Eau et du bois, que leur dessein estoit que toutes choses se pas- 
sassent a I'amiable, mais qu'ils estoient dans la necessite d'Eau et de bois, qu'ils ne 
demandoient point autres choses, mais qu'aussy il leur falloit cela a quelque prix 
que se fut, que le grand vaisseau commande par Monsieur Charles Richard etoit 
de 68 : pieces de canons, et de 350 : hommes d'Equipage, et I'autre commande par 
Monsieur henry foul, de 46 : pieces de canons, et de 250 : hommes d'Equipage, et 
qu'ils auoient dans leurs deux vaisseaux sept chaloupes fort spacieuses, qui pouuoi- 
ent ensemble contenir 400: hommes. Je luy fis reponse, qu'il eut la bonte de se 
donner vn peu de patience, que dans une heure au plus tard, Je luy aurois rendu 
reponse, et le quittay, pour aller joindre les habitans qui estoient assembles, dans 
la maison de Gilles Laiuiay, ou je les auois fait renfermer, pour ne leur pas faire 
voir la quantite de Monde que Nous auions, ou etant Je voulus engager les habitans 
a bien faire leur devoir, ayant resolu de ne leur rien accorder : mais les habitans 
considerant le peu de monde qu'ils estoient pour s'opposer a vne force si super- 
ieure a la leur, ils jugerent tous plus apropos de leur permettre de faire 
du bois, et de I'Eau, plustot que s'exposer auec 35: hommes qu'ils se 
trouuerent capables de porter les armes, a la descente que pouuoient faire lesd. 
Anglois, lesquels pouuoient mettre dans leurs sept chaloupes, tout d'vn coup 400 : 
hommes a terre. Ce furent la les raisons qu'ils me representerent par vne requeste 
signee de leurs mains, led. Lieutenant voyant qu'il estoit deja tard, et que meme 
TAmiral auoit tire deux coups de canons, pour le rapeller, demanda a auoir solu- 
tion sur rheure meme, Je luy promis, qu'ils auroient du bois, et de I'Eau, led. Lieu- 
tenant m'ayant remercie, me dit, que ce seroit luy qui resteroit en ostage pendant 
que Von feroit I'Eau et le bois, et demanda quelque officier, qui fut a sa place 
a bord, Je luy repondis, que ce seroit le sieur Boucher qui seroit son ostage, que 


pendant que led. Lieutenant resteroit a terre, led. sieur Boucher seroit dans le 
vaisseau, de quoy il se trouua satisfait, et retouma a bord rendre compte de sa 

Le Lendemain, i6e. sur les 6: a 7: heures du matin led. Lieutenant vint 
a terre auec les troisd. chaloupes, mais sans armes ainsy qu'il auoit este arrete le 
jour precedent, et led. sieur Boucher fut a bord de TAmiral, ou il fut parfaitement 
bien regeu. Je fis reciproquement tous les honneurs, qui me furent possibles aud» 
Lieutenant; ils firent plusieurs questions aud. sieur Boucher, sur le bon, et 
mauuais de Tlsle, a quoy il repondit toujours jndirectement, ne leur en decouurant 
point la verite. 

Le Commandant, qui parloit fort bon frangois luy demanda si Nous n'auions 
point de nouuelles de L'Amphitritte, a quoy il repondit, que Nous le croyions en 
france, il luy repartit que cela ne pouuoit estre, parce qu'il Tauoit veu, lorsqu'il 
estoit demaste a la Chine, ou il estoit Tannee precedente, mais que la raison, qui 
Tobligeoit a s'jnformer de cela qu'il auoit nouuelle certaine qu'il y auoit aux Indes 
vn vaisseau f ourban de 50 : pieces de canons, et qu'il ne connoissoit point d'autre 
vaisseau aux Indes de 50: pieces de canons, que celuy la, que Monsieur De la 
Rigaudiere, qu'il connoissoit fort bien, et son lieutenant pouuant estre morts,. 
I'Equipage pouuoit fort bien s'estre rendu fourban, il y auoit belle matiere a re- 
pondre a vn Anglois sur ce sujet, mais Nous n'estions pas les plus forts, et le 
meilleur party estoit de ne rien dire, le sieur Boucher ne sgait meme pas si I'jnten- 
tion dud. Commandant n'estoit point de I'obliger dans la chaleur du vin a luy 
repliquer quelques paroles piquantes, car continuant a jnsulter a la france, il luy 
dit, qu'il y auoit sept vaisseaux du Roy de france, qui estoient alles a Bengalle 
chercher du salpetre, que Ton disoit qu'il y en auoit douze, mais qu'il n'estoit seur 
que de sept, pendant tous ces discours les liqueurs de toutes les Especes rouloient 
en abondance et il vouloit engager led. sieur Boucher d'en prendre hors de raison, 
ce qui le persuada, qu'assurement il cherchoit I'occasion de le faire parler a leur 
desauantage, comme il parloit au Notre; mais il s'estoit trop bien precautionne, 
pour dire quelque chose, dont Nous eussions sans doute, porte la peine, il luy dit 
aussy que son Escadre estoit de cinq vaisseaux, mais qu'il en auoit perdu trois de 
I'autre coste du Cap de bonne Esperance sgauoir deux nauires de guerre, et vne 
galiote a bombes ce qui Nous a fait juger que se pouuoit estre les cinq memes 
vaisseaux qui auoient passe a la veiie le 29e. aoust, qui ne croyoient pas auoir este 
veus, mais Nous avons sgeu par d'autres gens de I'Equipage, que leur Escadre 
estoit de dix vaisseaux, mais qu'il y auoit des marchands sans Nous en dire le 
nombre, le Commandant luy dit encor, que son dessein estoit de nauiguer entre 
les Isles Madagascar, Maurice, et icy jusqu'a la saison d'aller aux Indes, dans 
cet jnterualle, il se leua vn vent vn peu force, il demanda au sieur Boucher, s'il 
n'y auoit rien a craindre pour leurs vaisseaux, et comme Nous souhaitions fort 
qu'ils fussent deja partis, il luy repondit, que Nous n'auions point d'Exemple, qu'il 
y eut en de mauuais temps auant le 25e. Ce terme estoit asses proche pour luy 
donner de la crainte, aussy prit il aussytost son party, et fit armer la chaloupe, dans 
laquelle il fit mettre Cent bouteilles de vin, biere, et cidre de present pour moy, et 
Cinquante pour le sieur Boucher qu'il fit reconduire a terre par vn Lieutenant 
auec toutes sortes de ciuilites. le Lieutenant qui estoit en ostage, s'en fut a bord. 


led. Sr. Boucher le conduisit jusqu'au bord de la Mer affin que les ciuilites fussent 

Le I7e: sur les sept a huit heures du soir, ils remirent a la voille, apres auoir 
fait quelques chaloupees d'Eatie, et de bois, que Je leur donnay gratis. Le i8e. 
lis passerent deuant St. Denis a deux lieues de terre, pour aller a Maurice, sans 
qu'il se soit pratique aucun commerce entr'Eux et Nous, Ainsy qu'il auoit est6 
arrete entre le Lieutenant et moy.

qui les amenoit, il me repondit qu*ils ne demandoient que quelques rafraichissems.

donner, que le Roy, et la Compagnie me deffendoient cela sur toutes choses, ainsy 
qu'ils me feroient plaisir de se retirer, sur cela led. quartier maitre me dit, que

Deffense de la Chasse 

Le 4e. Septembre, 1704: ayant este in forme que quelques habitans du quartier 
de St. Paul auoient fait quelque degat dans les bois allant a la Chasse, et ne 
pouuant decouurir les coupables, Je deffendis absolument la chasse auxd. habitans, 
jusqu'a ce que quelqu'vn eut declare ceux qui auoient fait le degat, outre plus que 
cela donnoit lieu aux bestiaux de se multiplier. 

Trois Vaisseaux passes a la Veiie de VJsle 


Permission pour la Chasse 

Le I2e. Octobre, 1704: la chasse fut permise aux habitans, meme dans les 
lieux, ou elle estoit cy deuant deffendiie, ils estoient obliges de viure, sur ce qu'ils 
eleuent dans leurs Cours, ce qui les mettoit hors d'Etat de conserver des rafrai- 


chissemens pour les vaisseaux qui passent icy, ce qu'ils me firent representer par 
le sr. Aubert capne. du quartier de St. Paul, et la raison pourquoy la Chasse a c^^te 
permise dans les lieux cy deuant deffendus, C'est que Ton s'est apergu que depuis 
la deffense faite a ce sujet les bestiaux n'augmentoient point dans ces endroits, et 
qu'au contraire cela ne faisoit que fauoriser les vns, et murmurer les autres, parce 
que la plus grande partie des habitans de St. Paul ayant leurs habitations dans les 
hauts, dud. lieu, il est certain que c'estoit eux seuls, qui viuoient des bestiaux qui 
resident dans ces montagnes, il leur est cependant tou jours deffendu de prendre 
ny tuer des beufs, ceux qui sont dans les lieux, ou les beufs se peuuent esleuer, on 
leur donne vne permission pour en prendre vn ou deux tout au plus de ceux qui sont 
marons pour eleuer chez Eux, hors dans les lieux, ou cela pouroit faire tort aux 
troupeaux de la Compagnie, Cette permission leur est donnee par Ecrit gratis, il 
n'est aussy permis auxd. habitans que d'aller vne seule fois la Semaine a la 
Chasse, et vn seul homme, par chaque menage. 

Enleuement d'vn Canot a frangois Mussard 

Le 28e. d'Octobre, 1704: vn canot de six rames appartenant a Francois 
Mussard fut enleue la nuit par deux Negres, Tvn appartenant a Pierre Noel, et 
Tautre a Pierre Gonneau habitans de St. Paul, sans que Nous ayons pu sgauoir ce 
qu'ils sont deuenus. 


Ordonnance au Sujet des Canots 

Le 4e. nouemb. 1704: au sujet de Tenleuement de ce Canot, Je fis vne 
ordonnance, par laquelle il estoit ordonne aux habitans de veiller si bien a leurs 
Canots, que les Noirs, ne pussent en enlever, et de renfermer dans leurs maisons les 
voiles, et les auirons, et que lorsqu'il iroit quelque Canot a la tortile, ou autre part, 
il y eut vn blanc dedans, arme au moins de deux pistolets, a faute de quoy, Ceux 
qui seroient conuaincus d'auoir manque a quelqu'vn desd. articles, d'estre seuere- 
ment punis, sans auoir Egard a ce qu'ils auroient perdu ou leurs Noirs, ou leurs 

Enlevement d'vn Canot a Maturin Gamier. 

Le 8e. Novembre, 1704: le Canot a Mathurin Garnier Capitaine du quartier 
de Ste. Suzanne, malgre les precautions, que Ton auoit prises, fut enleue par huit 
Noirs, ou Negresses, sgauoir quatre Noirs, et trois Negresses a luy appartenans, 
et vn noir a Jacques De Lastre. Je fis a ce sujet, de nouuelles ordonnances, 
portantes a ce que Ton ne laisseroit plus aucun Canot sur le bord de la mer et que 
chacun les mettroit dans Tfitang, gardant chez soy les voiles, et les auirons sous la 
clef, et il fut affiche aux portes des Eglises, que tous Negres, qui seroient trois mois 
apres Tordonnance publiee, Marons, ou ceux qui seroient conuaincus d'auoir voulu 
enlever des Canots, quoyqu'ils ne Teussent point effectue, seroient pendus. 


Arriuee de la quaiche, le St. Louis 

Le 146. Nouemb. 1704: la quaiche de la royale Compagnie de france, le 
St. Lotiis commandee par Monsieur De la touche, le sieur Cleuet marchand sur 
jcelle, est arriuee a cette Isle, laquelle y a este enuoyee par Monsieur Le Cheualier 
Martin Gouuemeur de Pondichery, pour chercher I'argent que Nous pouuions 
auoir^ par la raison, que le retardement de TEscadre qui deuoit aller a Pondichery 
n'y estant point encor arriuee il se trouua vn peu court d'argent, ayant employe 
tout ce qu'il auoit de fonds, potu* les Marchandises qu'il auoit achetees pour la 
cargaison de lad. Escadre, ce qui Ta oblige d'auoir recours au peu que Nous anions, 
Nous luy auons enuoye tout ce que Nous anions en Caisse, tant du prouenu des 
Magazins, que de la succession de Pitre Nape, Nous luy auons aussy enuoye 
diuerses marchandises, qui eussent este d'vne longue, et mauuaise deffaite dans 
L'Isle outre que M. Le Cheualier Martin Nous mandoit de luy enuoyer tout ce 
que Nous pourions, que dans la conjoncture, ou ils etoient a Pondichery, ils auoient 
besoin de tout, il y auoit aussy sur lad. quaiche vn petit chargement de Marchan- 
dises pour icy, lesquelles Nous auons vendiies et enuoye le prouenu aussy a mond. 
Sr. Le Cheualier Martin et auons charge du tout les Srs. La touche, et Cleuet, 
capne. et marchand. sur lad. quaiche, a laquelle ayant fait faire des mats de 
hunes, dont elle auoit absolument besoin, et luy auoir deliure ses rafraichissemens, 
a remis a la voile pour retourner a Pondichery le i er. decembre, ou je prie Dieu 
qu'il la conduise. 


poursuite au Sujet de frangois Gamier 

Le 8e. Januier, 1705: le sieur Boucher fut auerty que le nomme frangois 

Garnier habitant du quartier de Ste. Suzanne, ayant este le 5e. a la chasse, ses 

chiens estoient reuenus le 6e. sans leur maitre, ce qui ne leur estoit encor jamais 

arriue, ce qui luy donna lieu de croire qu41 estoit arriue quelqu' accident aud. 

Gamier, dans les bois, Nous Nous transportames le sieur Boucher et moy a la 

maison dud. Gamier situee a la riuiere du Mas, distante d'enuiron neuf lieiies de 

St. Denis, et sur ce que Tabsence dud. Garnier parut douteuse au Sieur Boucher, 

par la grande distance qu'il y a de cette maison a aucun autre voisin, et que de 

plus. Ton soubgonnoit Monique Vincendo, Epouse dud. Gamier d'auoir depuis 

longtemps vn commerce secret auec vn nomme Etienne La Roche Creole de Tlsle 

lequel fait sa demeure chez son frere Pierre Robert le plus proche voisin de la 

maison dud. Garnier, et led. Gamier n'ayant personne dans sa maison, que sa 

femme, et trois petits enfants, dont le plus age n'auoit que six ans, lequel ne 

pouuoit a cet age, rendre vn fidele temoignage si son pere estoit alle a la Chasse, 

ou non, Ainsy ce n'estoit sur le simple raport de lad. Monique Vincendo, que 

Ton le sgauoit, sur ces Considerations le sieur Boucher me presenta requete, 

pour que je fisse arreter, et emprisonner led. jour meme 8e. Januier lesd. Etienne 

La Roche, et Monique Vincendo, et pour que Je fisse partir plusieurs personnes, 

dans les bois a la recherche dud. Gamier, Ce que je fis. 


Lesd. fitienne La Roche, €t Monique Vincendo ont reste vn mois entier dans- 
les prisons, pendant lequel temps, ils ont suby trois jnterrogations en diiferentes 
fois en ma presence, et en celle de huit des plus anciens habitans, dans lesquelles 
Ton n'a point decouuert la moindre chose, qui put faire soubgonner lesd. Etienne 
La Roche, et Monique Vincendo, d'estre les auteurs de la mort, ou de Tabsence 
dud. Garnier, et apres auoir fait toutes les perquisitions requises en pareil cas, 
fait publier lettres monitoriales par trois dimanches consecutifs a prosuer de 
grandes messes, et apres la reagraue aussy publiee, personne n'estant venu a 
reuelation, lesd. Etienne la Roche, et Monique Vincendo furent mis en liberte le 
ge, feurier, quoyque cependant Ton n'ait point trouue pendant vn mois entier de 
recherche par plus de vingt personnes aucunes apparences, soit de la f uitte, ou de 
la mort dud. Garnier. 

Cabale de plusieurs Negres 

Le 2ye. du mois de Januier, 1705 : le sieur Boucher eut auis pa rle nomme 
Laurent Martin, qu'il s'estoit forme vne Cabale de plusieurs Noirs, qui se vou- 
loient reuolter, et auoient voulu mettre de leur complot vn nomme Lambau Noir 
Esclaue de lacques Richard, a dessein de se retirer dans les bois, et qu' apres qu'ils 
auroient joint plusieurs autres, qui deuoient estre de leur party, que leur dessein 
estoit d'entrer dans les maisons de quelque habitans pour les egorger, et se rendre 
maitres de leurs armes, pour ensuite aller de maisons en maisons tuer tous les 
habitans pour dans la suite, se rendre maitres de Tlsle, lequel d. Lambau auertit de 
tout, ce qui confirma le sieur Boucher de tout, lequel me presenta aussytost 
requete, pourque Je fisse poursuiure les nommez Mathieu, Pitre, Sambo et 
Sebastien auteurs de ce Complot, lesquels estoient deja retires dans les bois, pour 
effectiier leur execrable dessein, ayant Egard a la requete dud. sieur Boucher, et 
considerant le danger qu'il y auoit a laisser croupir vue aifaire de cette conse- 
quence, Je fis partir diuers detachemens apres en differens endroits, mais tous 
jnutilement, car ils ne furent point trouuez de ceux qui les cherchoient. 


Auis au Sujet des Noirs cy-dessus 

Le lie. Feurier, 1705: le Nomme lean le Blanc, Noir Esclaue de Manuel 
Texer vint auertir le sieur Boucher a St. Paul, ou il estoit, que les susnommez 
quatre Noirs luy estoient venus parler, Torsqu'il estoit a trauiller a I'habitation 
de son maitre, et luy auoient demande s'il se vouloit joindre a Eux, que leur 
dessein estoit d' entrer dans la maison dud. Manuel Texer, de le tuer, sa femme, et 
les plus grands de ses enfans, et les petits, les Her par les pieds et par les mains, et 
les laisser sur lieux, et de se saisir de quinze, ou seize armes a feu, qui estoient 
dans la maison, pour ensuitte se joindre a plusieurs autres camarades qu'ils 
auoient, et venir tous ensemble, lorsque Ton souperoit dans la maison de St. Denis, 
me tuer le faisant a tous ceux qui se trouueroient a la table, ou que si leur dessein. 


ne pouuoit pas reiissir de cette fagon ils mettroient le feu a la maison par derriere, 
•et que dans le temps que Ton sortiroit, ils feroient leur massacre, et se seroient 
saisis de mon canot apres auoir tout pille dans la maison, et s'en seroient alles 
dans leur pays a Madagascar, d'ou ils estoient tous, ou sinon qu'ils bastiroient vne 
maison forte dans le bois, et feroient la guerre aux frangois, jusqu'a ce qu'ils se 
fussent rendus maitres absolus de Tjsle, tuant et massacrant tous ceux qui s'y 
seroient opposes, led. lean le blanc feignit d'estre de leur party, et aprouua tous 
leurs desseins, mais que Theure presente n'estoit pas bonne pour faire le massacre 
<ians la maison de son Maitre parcequ'il auoit conuie, ce jour les plusieurs de ses 
amis a disner, et qu'il y auoit beaucoup de monde dans la maison, quoyque veritable- 
ment il n'y eut dans ce temps la que sa maitresse toute seule, son maitre estant 
vn de ceux qui estoient a la poursuite desd. noirs Marons. Ainsy le coup ne leur 
auroit pas este difficile a executer joint a ce que cette maison situee qu'elle est a la 
possession est eloignee de plus de deux lieiies d'aucun voisin, mais le seigneur ne 
Tayant pas permis, ils ont este punis par vn chatiment conforme a leurs crimes qui 
leur a este fait ensuite. led. lean le Blanc leur ayant done fait connoitre le peu 
d'apparence qu'il y auoit d'efFectuer leur dessein dans ce moment la, il leur fit 
•entendre qu'il falloit mieux remettre la partie au lendemain, et qu'il se joindroit a 
£ux, qu'il n'y auroit que sa maitresse a la maison, parceque sans doute son maitre 
ne manqueroit pas d'aller a St. Paul, pour se diuertir auec ceux qu'il auoit regale 
ce jour la, et que dans ce temps la, il les viendroit trouuer dans vn lieu d'assignation 
<iu'il leur donna, et qu'ils iroient tous ensemble executer ce qu'ils auoient projette. 
lesd. fugitifs, ou pour mieux dire, assassins ne voulant point ajouter foy aux paroles 
dud. lean le blanc ils vouloient a toute force entrer dans la maison, et tuer, disoient 
ils, tous ceux qui s'y seroient trouues ; mais led. lean le blanc leur ayant derechef 
fait connoistre le danger qu'il y auoit a cette entreprise, il les persuada a la fin de 
n'y point aller pour ce jour la, et de remettre la partie au lendemain, mais n'ayant 
point vne entiere confiance aud. lean le blanc, ils exigerent de luy vn Serment, 
qu'il ne les trahiroit point, et qu'il se joindroit le lendemain a Eux, il leur accorda 
tout ce qu'ils vouloient, et jura sans difficulte. C'est vn des grands bonheurs qui se 
puisse, que ce Coup n'aye point reiissy, et Nous en deuons bien remercier le Seig- 
neur, Car si cette maison auoit este gagnee, tout le reste s'en seroit suiuy, ainsy 
-qu'ils I'auoient projette, et le reste de I'lsle auroit bientot este en leur pouuoir, 
estant comme ils etoient, retranchez dans les bois, et par la grande quantite d'autres 
Negres, qui se seroient joints a Eux, lorsqu'ils auroient este armes, dans la suite 
<iu proces, Nous en auons compte jusqu'a quarante, qui, estoient engages dans leur 
<oniplot ; et de plus, ce qui leur auroit faciliie la reiissite de leur Enterprise, C'est 
que personne n'auroit este informe du Massacre qu'ils auroient fait a la Possession, 
par le grand filoignement qu'il y a de cette maison a aucun autre voisin. Aussytost 
que led. lean le blanc les eut quitte, il vint avertir du tout le sieur Boucher, qui fit 
incontinent partir sept hommes du quartier de St. Paul des meilleurs coureurs, 
armes de chacun leurs fusils, et outre qu*il ne les fit partir, que la nuit, c'est qu'il 
les fit passer par vn chemin detoume, de crainte que lesd. fugitifs ne les apergeus- 
sent, ne doutant point que dans la defiance ou doiuent estre des gens, qui veulent 
faire vne mauuaise action, ne fussent postes dans vn lieu, d'ou ils auroient pu voir 
les passans, sans en estre aper^eus, il ordonna aux sept hommes de se tenir tran- 


quilles dans la maison sans faire aucun bruit, et aud. Jean le blanc d'aller ainsy 
qu'il Tauoit promis, joindre lesd. fugitifs, et de les engager a venir faire leur mas- 
sacre, comme ils Tauoient projette, luy promettant qu'il seroit recompense de sa 

Le lendemain, I2e. a la petite pointe du jour, led. lean le blanc fut joindre 
lesd. fugitifs au lieu d'assignation, et leur fit entendre, qu'ils pouuoient sans aucune 
difficulte entrer dans la maison, que son maitre, et toute sa Compagnie estoient 
alles a St. Paul, pour entendre la Messe, disant qu'il estoit ce jour la feste, Tous 
dirent, allons ne tardons pas d'auantage il n y a deja que trop long temps que Nous 
marchandons, et en disant cela, ils auancerent a grands pas du coste de la maison, 
et Tors qu'ils en f urent a enuiron 300 : pas, IVn des quatre, nomme Mathieu, celuy, 
qui le jour precedent estoit le plus determine a tout tuer, s'auisa, dans ce moment, 
de faire vne reflexion, et dit a ses Camarades, qu'il n'estoit pas apropos d'entrer 
jmprudement dans cette maison sur la parole dud. lean le blanc, et sans estre 
bien seurs s'il n'y auoit personne dedans, pour les y surprendre, ils se mirent, pour 
cet eifet, dans vn lieu, d'on ils pouuoient facilement voir dans la maison, car Ton en 
auoit laisse les portes ouuertes, pour leur donner plus de facilite a y entrer; et 
lors qu'ils virent qu^l n'y auoit que la femme assise sur le pas de la porte, trois 
d'entr'Eux dirent, fongons, il y fait bon, mais led. Mathieu ayant dans ce temps la 
plus de prudence que Ton n'eut souhaite, n'y voulut point consentir, et dit aux 
autres, allons joindre deux de nos camarades, lean Loiiis, et Pierre, et ensuite 
Nous viendrons faire notre massacre et s'il y a du monde dans la maison. Nous 
serons plus en Etat de Nous deffendre contr*Eux: led. lean le blanc leur jura 
derechef qu'il n'y auoit personne dans la maison, que sa maitresse estoit seule, ce 
qui les fit enfin resoudre a donner dedans, mais dans le temps qu'ils partoient pour 
ce sujet, les Chiens de la maison les ayant Euentes aboyerent, ce qui les obligea a 
regarder derechef, et virent quelquVn dedans, ce que led. Mathieu ayant apergu 
le premier, il dit aux autres, Tiions ce bougre la, car il Nous trahit, Je vois du 
monde dans la maison, Torsque led. Jean le blanc vit qu'ils le vouloient tuer, il 
se jetta sur vn des quatre, et luy arracha sa saguaye, qui est vne lance de bois 
gamy dVn fer pointu par le bout, et se deffendit courageusement contr'Eux en 
criant a moy les frangois, ce qu'ayant entendu lesd. fugitifs, ils prirent la fuitte 
tout au trauers du bois, qui est malheureusement fort Epais dans cet endroit, de 
sorte que deuant que les sept hommes fussent venus au bruit, Ton ne voyoit plus 
les fugitifs; cela n'empecha pas qu'ils ne courussent tout a trauers le bois, sans 
pourtant rien voir, et Torsque Tun des sept, nomme Antoine Fontaine en apergu 
deux, il les poursuiuit long temps et apres auoir couru plus de demie heure, et les 
auoir presque joint, Tvn des deux nomme Pitre se retouma vers led. fontaine, et 
se mit en deuoir de luy lancer vne de ses lances, dont il auoit deux, et qui sans 
doute, ne Tauroit pas manque estant fort pres, si led. fontaine ne Tauoit preuenu. 
car ayant este plustost pret que luy, il luy lacha son coup de fusil, luy mit trois 
balles dans le Corps, et le tua sur la place sans pouuoir en tirer vne seule parole, 
pendant ce temps la Tautre se sauua, et il ne put plus le joindre; Cette deroute 
ayant ecarte lesd. Noirs les vns des autres, Tvn des trois qui restoient, nomme 
Sambo, se sauua deuers le quartier de St. Denis, tou jours arme de sa sagaye, vn 
noir nomme Antoine petit train, fort et robuste, et ne manquant point de resolu- 


tion, Tayant aperQu la Nuit, derriere vn pare a Cabrits, sans en estre apergii, prit 
vn morceau de bois, et le mit dans sa poche, comme si s'eut este vn pistolet, et 
courut dessus luy en tirant son morceau de bois de sa poche, et luy dit, Arrete, ou 
Je te tue, en luy presentant le morceau de bois, led. Sambo persuade que C'estoit 
vn pistolet, et meme encor tout eff raye de ce qui luy venoit d'arriuer a la Posses- 
sion, se coucha aussytost sur le ventre, led. Antoine luy attacha les mains derriere 
le dos, et le conduisit chez Dumesnil la plus proche maison de Tendroit, ou il 
estoit, lequel Dumesnil Tamena a St. Denis, ou il fut mis en prison, les fers aux 
pieds, et aux mains. 

Sur I'auis, qui fut donne au Sieur Boucher, par les susnommez habitans, 
qu'il auoit enuoye a la Possession, que le dessein des fugitifs estoit de joindre 
feiirs camarades, lean Lotiis, et Pierre, il ne douta point que dans le desordre ou 
les auoit mis cette poursuite, ils ne cherchassent a se ratrouper, et ne vinssent pour 
cet effet a St. Paul joindre leur deux susd. Camarades, ce qu'ayant preuue, il fit 
mettre des Embuscades dans les lieux, ou ils pouuoient passer, affin de les sur- 
prendre, et cela apres auoir arrete lesd. lean Louis et Pitre, cette precaution ne fut 
pas jnutile, car le lendemain sur les huit a neuf heures du soir, Tvn des deux qui 
estoient encor dans les bois, momme Sebastien ne manqua pas de venir a St. Paul, a 
dessein de venir joindre ses deux Camarades, led. Antoine fontaine Tayant apergeu 
au passage dVn banc de roche, qui est a Tfitang de St. Paul, quoyque la nuit fut 
fort obscure, et luy cria plusieurs fois d'arreter, mais jnutilement car led. Sebastien 
se mit auss)rtost a courir, mais led. fontaine, apres I'auoir long temps poursuiuy, a 
la fin, le joignit, et luy donna vne si grande bourade du bout de son fusil, par le 
milieu du dos, qu'il le renuersa par terre, ou alors, ses camarades d'Embuscade 
estant aussy accourus, ils le Herent et le remirent entre les mains du Sieur Boucher, 
pour que justice en fut faite. 

Le I5e. dud. mois de Feurier, lesd. Sebastien, lean Louis, et Pierre furent 
conduits a St. Denis, par les Srs. lacques Auberjt, et Gonneau, capne, et Enseigne 
dud. quartier de St. Paul, et par Le sieur Boucher, ou estant arriuez, ils furent mis 
en prison, les fers aux pieds, et aux mains. 

Led. Jour, I5e. feurier, les habitans me presenterent requete, au sujet desd. 
Noirs, et de ceux qui pouroient dans la suite se rendre fugitifs, par laquelle, ils me 
prioient de ne les point forcer a payer lesd. Noirs : si au cas ils estoient fait mourir, 
consentans tons que si les leurs se trouuoient dans le meme cas, et qu*ils fussent 
faits mourir, ils n'en demanderoient aucun payement. 

Les, 16: 17: 18: et ige, dud. mois de feurier, 1705, Taudience fut teniie, et 
apres auoir interroge, et confronte tous les susnommez et plusieurs autres qui se 
trouuerent complices, et apres auoir fait toutes les autres formalites de justice 
requises en pareil cas et n'ayant rien trouue dans les declarations des susnommes 
Sebastien, et Sambo, qui ne fut entierement conforme a tous les articles cy dessus 
specifies, et declares par les accusateurs, comme il est plus au long mentionne au 
proces, led. Sambo fut condamne led. jour, ige. de Feurier, 1705 : a estre pendu 
ct Etrangle jusqu'a ce que mort s'ensuiue dans le quartier de St. Denis, ce qui fut 
execute led. jour, et led. Sebastien, comme vn des plus coupables, a estre brusle 
vif, dans le quartier de St. Paul; mais led. Sebastien, ayant demande vne mort 
plus douce, disant qu'il desesperoit de son salut s'il estoit brusle vif, qu'il sgauoit 


qu'il meritoit la mort, mais qu'il auoit vn desir ardent de sauuer son ame, de quoy 
il desesperoit, sll estoit brusle vif, ce que les luges ayant considere, et voulant 
auoir Egard a des raisons qui le meritoient si bien, on luy fit tirer dix coups de 
fusils au trauers du corps, et de la teste, sitost qu'il fut attache au poteau, qui le 
tiierent, et ensuite. Ton mit le feu au bois affin de consumer, en cendres, TExecu- 
tion en fut faite le 2oe. dud. mois de feurier, dans le quartier de St. Paul. 

Led. Mathieu encor fugitif dans les bois, fut aussy condamne a estre brusle vif 
dans le quartier de St. Denis, ce qui n'a pu, jusqu'a present estre execute, 
parceque Ton n'a pu encor le joindre, quelques soins, et precautions que Ton aye 
pris pour cela, et les lugemens desd. lean Loiiis, et Pierre furent suspendus jus- 
qu'a la prise dud. Mathieu, et cependant toujours arretes dans les prisons, la 
raison est qu'ils estoient directement associes auec led. Mathieu. 

Led. Antoine fontaine fut aussy entierement decharge de la mort de celuy 
qu'il auoit tue dans le bois, en faueur des ordres que j'auois donnes, que si dans la 
poursuite desd. Noirs, ils ne se rendoient pas, et qu'ils fissent resistance de les tuer. 

Si la sentence qui a este donnee contre les susnommes a este si rigoureuse, 
Cest que la chose estoit absolument necessaire, parceque Tlsle a deja este plusieurs 
fois en danger d'estre prise par de pareilles conspirations de Negres, et tons ceux 
qui sont dessus a estre massacres, et que les bois sont continuelement remplis de 
Noirs, qui s'enfuyent de chez leurs maitres, car Je puis assurer, et c'est la verite, 
que depuis le temps, que Je suis gouuerneur de lad. Isle, il y en a toujours eu sept 
ou huit au moins de fugitifs, et des plus mutins, et quand ils sont vne fois dans 
les bois, et qu'ils viennent a s'attrouper, suppose que leur dessein ne fut que de 
fuir, quand ils sortent de chez leurs maitres, lorsqu'ils se rencontrent vn nombre, 
ils forment des conspirations contre les habitans de Tjsle, Cest pourquoy il a 
este apropos de faire vn Exemple capable de donner de la terreur a ces Negres, 
pour que la vie du Public fut plus en seurete, qu'elle n'a este jusqu'a present. 

Pierre Esclaue d* Emanuel de Matte a eu le pied coupe 

Le dernier jour dud. mois de Feurier, 1705 : Le Nomme lacques Naze habi- 
tant du quartier de Ste. Suzanne, prit vn nomme Pitre noir Esclaue d'Emanuel 
de Matte habitant du quartier de St. Denis, lequel estoit fugitif dans les bois, 
depuis six mois, et auoit fait des dommages considerables dans plusieurs habita- 
tions, led. Noir ayant este amene a St. Denis, et emprisonne les fers aux pieds, et 
aux mains, fut interroge le 3e. mars et ayant auoiile auoir fait quantite de dom- 
mages aux habitans, et n'auoir jamais eu aucun sujet d'aller Maron, comme il 
faisoit continuelement, ayant cy deuant este cinq fois chatie de Chabouq, pour le 
meme sujet, il fut condamne a auoir le pied droit coupe au ras de Methatarse, dont 
Texecution fut faite led. jour 3e. mars. 

Si ce chatiment e este fait, c'est que Ton a connu Terreur, qu'il y auoit a leur 
donner le foiiet et la fleur de lys, les Noirs ne receuant cela, que comme vne 
bruslure, et plusieurs, qui I'ont eu s'estant ventes qu'ils ne s'en soucioient pas; 
ainsy en leur coupant, ou le pied, ou la jambe, cela les empeche de s'en aller, et 
n'en rendent pas moins bon seruice a leurs maitres, au lieu qu' auec la fleur de lys, 
. ils s'en retournoient dans les bois. Aussytost TExecution faite, et Ton couroit 


risque de ne les attraper jamais, et en danger d'estre exposes a leur ressentiment 
par deS seditions qui leur pouroient reiissir si Dieu n'y mettoit la main, comme il a 
deja fait plusieurs fois, dont Nous luy rendons graces, et le remercions de bon

Prise de Mathieu, et sa mort 

Le 236. du mois de Mars, 1705: le Nomme Mathieu, Noir fugitif, duquel 
J'ay cy deuant parle, ayant este la nuit dans le quartier de Ste. Suzanne, dans le 
magasin du nomme Denis Turpin, habitant dud. quartier, pour y prendre du tabac 
a fumer, duquel, il ne se pouuoit passer, led. Turpin I'ayant apergu, le poursuiuit 
auec son fusil, et ne le pouuant joindre, il tira dessus, et le blessa a la main, et led. 
Mathieu s'estant alors trouue embarasse dans des Liannes, led. Turpin le joignit, 
et le prit, il Tamena a St. Denis, ou i! fut mis au cachot, les fers aux pieds, et aux 

L' Audience ayant este teniae a ce sujet, et toutes formalites de justice ayant 
€ste faites, la sentence donnee contre led. Mathieu le ige. Mars, fut confirmee, a 
I'exception que la memc grace que Ton auoit faite a Sebastien, luy fut aussy 
accordee, qui estoit de luy faire tirer aussy dix coups de fusils, au trauers du corps 
-et de la teste,, auant que de mettre le feu au bucher : Cette expedition fut f aitte 
le 2e. Auril, 1705: il fit vne fort belle mort, et vne exortation a ses camarades, 
d'estre plus sages, qu'il ne Tauoit este. 

Les susd. lean Loiiis, Pierre, et autres complices, qui etoient detenus dans les 
cachots, furent elargis, ayant este pleinement justifies par led. Mathieu, s'estant 
luy meme accuse d'estre le premier autheur, et chef de cette cabale, et declare que 
lesd. lean Loiiis, et Pierre n'estoient consentans que de s*enfuir a Madagascar, 
mais non pas de massacrer personne.

Vne pierre de Soulphre trouuee sur VIsle, 

Le loe. de May, 1705: le sieur Boucher fut auerty par Francois Causan^ 
habitant du quartier de St. Paul, que le jour precedent estant a garder ses beufs, 
proche Tvn des bras de la riuiere du Gallet, qui se vient terminer dans Tfitang de 
St. Paul, qu'il auoit apergu quelque chose de clair que le soleil faisoit luire, et que 
s'estant approche de ce lieu, il vit que c'estoit vne pierre enuiron grosse, comme la 
teste d'vn homme, fort poreuse, remplie de trous, tant dans son Centre, que 
superficielement, lesquels trous estoient remplis de choses qu'il ne connoissoit pas, 
et qui se detachoient fort aisement, dont il aporta vn morceau aud. sieur Boucher, 
qui connut que c'estoit de tres bon, et beau soulphre, et bien purifie par Tardeur du 
soleil, il se transporta jncontinent au lieu, ou estoit lad. pierre, et la fit enleuer 
de Tendroit, sans beaucoup de difficultes, car elle ne tenoit presque pas en terre ; 
il faut, sans doute que cette pierre ayt este roulee par le Courant de TEau, car a 
ses enuirons, il y auoit quantite de petits morceaux de soulphre, qui s'estoient 


detaches de cette pierre, ce qui ne pouuoit estre, que Torsque le Courant dc TEau 
passoit auec impetuosite dessus et autour de cette pierre, et en detachoit ces petits 
morceaux que Nous auons trouue autour, et que le torrent de TEau estant cesse, 
et le bras de riuiere reste a sec, cette pierre s'est ainsy trouuee par hazard, dans 
cet endroit, car led. sieur Boucher y a fait faire plusieurs recherches, sans auoir 
pu trouuer autres choses, il enuerra cette pierre a la Compagnie par les premiers 
vaisseaux, qui toucheront icy, pour faire leur retour en france, Cependant cela ne 
laisse aucun doute qu'il n'y ait sur Tjsle des mines de soulphre, et qu'il faut neces- 
sairement qu'elle s'en soit detachee dans les debordemens des Eaux. 


Recherche sur vne pretendue Mine de fer 

Le se. de luin, mil sept cens Cinq, le sieur Boucher estant en conuersation 
auec quelques habitans, et parlant sur les differens lieux de Tlsle, ou ils auoient 
este, le nomme franqois Natiuel luy dit qu'il se ressouuenoit, qu'il y auoit plus de 
dix ans, qu'estant a la chasse, il se trouua a vne rauine qui est audessus de St. 
Paul, ou il y auoit fort peu d*Eau, laquelle meme n'estoit que dans de certains 
petits reseruoirs qui se forment naturelement dans ces lieux, quoyque se fut peu de 
temps apres le debordement des Eaux et qu'ayant soif, il voulut boire a IVn de ces 
petits reseruoirs, mais que TEaiie estoit mouchetee pardessus, et luisante comme a 
peu pres des Ecailles de poisson, quoyque cependant asses claire, mais qu*elle 
sentoit si fort le fer, qu'il n'en put boire, ce qui Tobligea d'aller a Tvn des reseruoirs 
qui estoit audessus, ou il auoit trouue TEaiie qui estoit parfaitement bonne, Le 
sieur Le Preuost chirurgien de la Compagnie estoit present, lequel jugea, ainsy 
que le sieur Boucher, que se pouuoit estre vne mine de fer, et que cette Eaiis, qui 
le sentoit, estoit minerale, le sieur Boucher demanda aud. Natiuel, s'il se res- 
souuiendroit bien de cet endroit lequel luy ayant repondu qu'oiiy, lesd. sieurs 
Boucher, et Le Preuost s'y transporterent, quoyqu'asses difficilement, car les 
lieux, ou il faut passer, sont presqu' jnnaccessibles mais ils trouuerent que ce 
reseruoir estoit sec, ils virent veritablement, que les pierres de cet endroit, estoient 
de couleur de roiiille de fer, et le sentoient beaucoup, et en auoient tout le gout, ce 
qui leur fit juger qu'il se pouuoit bien qu'il y eut dans cet endroit vne mine de fer, 
mais que ce reseruoir ne se remplissoit que dans le temps des grands debordemens 
des Eaux, led. sieur Boucher ne manquera pas d'y enuoyer, ou d'y aller luy meme 
dans ce temps la, affin d'en pouuoir rendre vn fidele compte a la Compagnie. 


Deceds du Sieur St, Gilles 

Le 24e. Aoust, 1705 : Mourut le sieur Pierre Auquin de St. Gilles, chirurgien 
Major, sur le vaisseau du Roy la Mutine, lequel estoit debarque icy malade, le 


i6e. Auril, lequel ayant fait son testament es mains du sieur Boucher, le choisit 
aussy, pour son executeur testamentaire et luy donna ordre, apres sa Mort de 
faire vente de tout ce qui lui apartenoit, pour en rendre compte a ses heritiers, de 
quoy, il s'est fidelement acquitte, ses effets ayant este vendus au plus ofFrat, et 
dernier Encherisseur, laquelle vente a monte, a, 810: 11 non Compris, 174: Ecus 
en especes, 15: sequins Venitiens, et, 18: sequins Maures, et Arabes, ainsy 
qu'appert par Tjnuentaire de luy signe, et pour Euiter tous soubgons touchant lad. 
vente, enuers ses heritiers, led. sieur Boucher a obserue de faire signer tous ceux 
qui acheterent a TEncan. 

Le 29e. Aoust, 1705 : IVn des habitans du quartier St. Denis, nomme lacques 
Richard, reuenant de chercher de la tortiie voulut mettre a terre a St. Paul, apres 
auoir passe toute la nuit sur la Mer, et fait ses efforts pour doubler la pointe du 
Gallet affin de se rendre a St. Denis, de quoy il ne put venir a bout, a cause de 
Tagitation de la Mer, qui estoit Epouuantable, de sorte que fatigue d'estre si long 
temps sur Mer, et tie sgachant meme plus que deuenir, il se resolut enfin a 
pousser a terre a trauers de toute la grosse mer, mais les lames Tayant enuelope, 
son canot se renuersa, et luy se noya, quoyqu'il y eut plus de Cent personnes au 
bord de la mer, il fut impossible de luy donner secours. 

Pendant le mois d' Aoust, et celuy de Septembre, la Mer fut tou jours dans vne 
agitation continuelle du coste du Quest de Tlsle, et a L'Est fort tranquille, ce qui 
est fort extraordre. Car du coste de TOiiest, C'est, ou regnent ordinairement les 
belles mers, et meme dans toutes les saisons de Tannee.

Complot de Cinq Noirs pour s'enfuir dans un Canot 

Le 8e. Septembre, 1705: Le Nomme Pierre Esclaue de la Veuue Riuiere, 
vint auertir le sieur Boucher, que plusieurs Negres vouloient enleuer vn Canot 
pour aller a Madagascar, lesquels estoient henry, loseph, lacques, et frangois 
appartenant au Sr. lacques Beda, et Antoine appartenant a Pierre folio. 

Les plus Experimentez habitans, ayant este assemble a ce sujet, et ayant 
fait les formalites de justice, requises en pareil cas, il fut reconnu que c'estoit led. 
henry, qui estoit Tautheur de cette entreprise, lequel vouloit enleuer le Canot de 
son maitre, C'est pourquoy led. henry fut condamne a auoir le foiiet, et la fleur de 
lys en place publique, dans le quartier de St. Paul, et a porter la Chaine, et les fers 
aux pieds, pendant deux mois de temps, pendant lesquels, il seroit au Carcan festes 
et diraanches, expose a la veiie du Public pendant le Seruice diuin, et les nommes 
loseph, lacques, frangois, et Antoine a estre chatiez de Chabouq, par tous les Noirs 
du quartier de St. Paul, Ce qui fut Execute le onze dud. mois de Septembre. 


Vne fenestre forcee au Magasin de la Compagnie 

Le I3e. Septembre, 1705: le sieur Boucher estant entre dans le magasin de la 
Compagnie, accompagne des Sr. frangois Natiuel, frangois Cauzan, et Joseph de 
Guigne, pour leur deliurer des Clouds, ils aperqurent que la fenestre qui donne 
sur la riuiere auoit este force, et que le Chassis en auoit este totalement arrache, la 
muraille en ayant este cassee a coups de pinces de fer, sur cela led. Sieur Boucher 
m'en auertit, Je me transportay jncontinent au Magasin, accompagne du sieur Le 
PreuostjNous vimes la chose ainsy qu'elle est icy raportee, Nous auons cependant 
juge, selon les apparences, que Ton n'y auoit point entre, et que celuy ou ceux qui 
auoient fait ce coup la, auoient este surpris car il ne tenoit qu'a Eux d'y entrer, au 
cas que cela se puisse decouurir par la suite, le sieur Boucher en adresse proces 
verbal, qu'il m'a fait signer, et par les Susnommez.

Vn Vaisseau fourban. 

Le i8e. Septembre, 1705: il est arriue, et moiiille en rade de St. Paul vn 
vaisseau fourban Anglois de 30: pieces de Canons, et de 100: hommes d'£quipage, 
commande par Thomas Oiiet, du quel vaisseau vint a terre henry Tader quartier 
Maitre, qui me demanda de leur permettre de faire quelques rafraichissemens, et 
de leur traitter de voiles, des ancres, des cordages, et autres agrets et aparaux pour 
leur vaisseau, qu'ils auroient paye en Eaiie de vie, dont ils estoient charges, que 
pour de Targent, ils n'en auoient point, et que sans auoir de quoy agreer leur 
Vaisseau, ils ne pouuoient pas faire leur voyage ; Je luy repondis, que non seule- 
ment, Je n'auois pas de quoy leur donner pour agreer, que quand meme, j'en 
aurois, je ne leur en donnerois pas, mais que je ne permettrois seulement pas que 
les habitans leur foumissent aucuns rafraichissemens, n'y a Eux de faire ny bois 
ny Eau sur Tjsle, qu'ils n'auoient qu'a se retirer, sans esperer aucun seruice de ce 
lieu; Ce que Voyant led. quartier Maitre, il demanda que je leur permisse au 
moins de faire quelque peu d'Eau, et de bois, pour aller seulement jusqu'a Mada- 
gascar. Ce que je leur refusay aussy, de quoy led. quartier Maitre se trouua fort 
mecontent, et dit qu*il ne s'estoit jamais veu que Ton eut refuse de TEaue et du bois, 
qu'ils n'auoient encor jamais pris sur les frangois, et que Tlsle se pouroit bien 
repentir vn jour du peu d*humanite que Ton auoit a leur Egard, qu'au reste, ils 
auoient absolument besoin d'Eau, et qu'il estoient 100: bons hommes dans leur 
vaisseau. A quoy Je repartis que Nous ne les aprehendions point qu'ils n'auoient 
qu'a venir, que Nous les attendions de pied ferme, et qu'ils pouuoient s'assurer, 
qu'ils trouueroient a qui parler. 

Les habitans qui ne sont pas fort portes a soutenir ces sortes de demesles, me 
presenterent la requete suiuante quoyqu' assurement le sieur Boucher fit ses eflForts 
pour les en empecher, leur ayant fait connoitre, qu'il falloit estre plus Zeles qu'ils 
ne le paroissoient a suiure les volontes du Roy et les ordres de la Compagnie, et 
que de plus Cent hommes ne Nous deuoient pas faire craindre et qu'il falloit, dans 
cette occasion, donner des preuues que s'il en auoit este re^eu cydeuant, que c'estoit 


par le grand auantage, qu'ils auoient eu sur Nous par leur nombre, mais, que puis- 
qu'ils n'etoient que Cent hommes, et peutestre pas tant, ces sortes de gens se 
faisant toujours vn plus grand nombre, qu'ils ne sont effectiuement, pour intimider, 
ceux auec lesquels ils ont affaire, que ce seroit vne pure lachete de les aprehender, 
et les mettre en droit de Nous venir faire de pareilles auances, quand il leur plairoit, 
mais ce fut jnutilement qu'il se tourmenta la dessus, car cela n'empecha pas les 
habitans de presenter leur requete, elle estoit en ces termes. 

"A Monsieur de Villers, Gouuerneur pour le Roy et la Royalle Com- 

pagnie de france, en L'Isle de Bourbon. 
"Aujourd'huy, i8e. Septembre, 1705 : vn batiment philibustier de 30: pieces de 
Canons, et de 100 : hommes d'Equipage estant venu moiiiller en notre rade. Isle de 
Bourbon a St. Paul, estant venu a terre. Nous demander a faire de TEaiie et du 
bois, ce que Monsieur De Villers gouuerneur leur ayant refuse: Nous habitans 
ayant vne entiere connoissance de ces gens la, c'est a dire de leur mechancete, qui 
par plusieurs fois Nous ont deja voulu brusler, et piller nos maisons, au surplus 
que ces gens la estant vn si grand nombre, et Nous la plus part vieux, et caducs, 
les jeunes a'ayant jamais eu Texperience des armes, et que si Ton refusoit a ces 
gens la le peu de choses, qu'ils demandent, qui ne consistent qu'a du bois, et de 
TEaue, ils pouroient par leur force superieure a la notre, et meme dans la suite 
des temps, se rendre maitres de Tlsle et detruire entierement la Colonnie, que Nous 
sommes tous portez auec Zele a soutenir, autant qu'il Nous sera possible, apres 
toutes ces considerations, Nous vous supplions humblement, qu'il vous plaise Mon- 
sieur, leur accorder la liberte de faire du bois, et de TEau, pendant quatre jours 
seulement, dans lequel Espace de temps, Nous vous prions aussy de ne leur don- 
ner la liberte de descendre plus de quartre hommes a terre, dans Tapprehension que 
Nous auons d'estre surpris par des gens, qui toute leur vie, ont fait ce mestier, et 
desquels on doit toujours se meffier; C'est pourquoy. Monsieur, Nous requerons 
de votre bonte de Nous accorder la presente demande, que Nous vous faisons

Je me trouuay oblige, et assurement malgre moy, a accorder auxd. fourbans 
de TEau, et du bois, ce que leur ayant este accorde, ils me voulurent faire 
present de quelques bariques d'Eaiie de vie, que Je refusay, leur disant que Je ne 
pretendois pas qu'en leur accordant la permission de faire de TEaiie, qu'ils debar- 
quassent seulement vne bouteille d'Eaiie de vie a terre, et deffendis aux habitans 
sous peine d'estre enuoyez en france, d'en commercer, ny debarquer vne seul goute, 
sous quelque pretexte, et condition que se put estre, non plus, que de quelques 
Noirs de Madagascar, qu'ils auoient, et dont ils se vouloient defaire, et desquels 
ils m'oifrirent deux que Je refusay aussy ensuite de quoy estant conuencus qu'ils 


ne laisseroient debarquer que quatre hommes, ce qui fut par Eux exactement 
obserue, ils firent quelques Chaloupees d'Eau, et de bois, et remirent a la voile le 
23e. dud. mois de Septembre, pour aller a Madagascar, sans pouuoir faire leur 
voyage de cette aimee, n'ayant pas re^eu de cette Isle, les secours qu'ils en 

Cependant dans Tjnterualle de temps, qu'ils ont reste icy qui a este de quatre

philibustiers, et dont vn nomme Samoros, ou autrement Samuel herolt estoit le 
Capitaine, et qu'il auoit este enleue par Eux, auec vn simple Canot, mais la plus 
mauuaise nouuelle qu'ils Nous apprirent, et la plus dangereuse pour I'lsle C'est 
que tous les Canots, qui ont este enleues par des Negres, desquels, J'ay cy deuant 
fait mention, se sont rendus a Madagascar, a bon port, et cela est si vray que 
C'estoit I'vn de ces Canots, qui auoit seruy a ces Philibustiers, pour enleuer ce 

C'est vne chose qui est plus que surprenante, que dans vn morceau de bois 
creuze, car les Canots d'jcy ne sont autre chose, que Ton puisse faire vn trajet 
aussy considerable, que celuy qu'il y a d'jcy a Madagascar, et ce qui est de plus 
fort, C'est que deux Negres en ayant enleue vn s'y sont rendus en trois jours, qui 
est le mesme duquel se sont seruies lesd. fourbans. 

Nous les priames de ne point faire Ebruiter cette nouuelle et de faire vne 
deflFense entr'Eux d'en parler, les priant aussy de ne laisser parler leurs Negres 
a qui que ce fut de I'lsle ny de les laisser descendre a terre, comme aussy, il fut 
deffendu aux habitans de laisser aucun de leurs Negres a bord ; mais malhureuse- 
ment toutes ces precautions ont este jnutiles, par I'jndiscretion des habitans, qui 
n'ont pu se contenter de la sgauoir, sans en parler, car il n'y a point de Negres 
dans L'Isle, qui ne le sgachent a present, ce qui en rendra la garde plus difficile, du 
moins faudrat'il y prendre beaucoup plus de precautions, car les Negres estant a 
beaucoup pres vn bien plus grand nombre dans I'lsle que les habitans, il est a 
apprehender quelque facheuse entreprise, et au cas qu'ils ne se pussent rendre 
absolument Maitres de I'lsle, leur recours seroit tou jours de se sauuer a Mada-

Enleuement du Canot a Manuel de Matte 

Le i6e. de Nouemb. 1705 : le nomme Manuel de Matte habitant du quartier 
de St. Denis partit dans son canot pour aller au boucan de laleu chercher de la 
tortiie, ou estant arriues auec Cinq Noirs qui formoient TEquipage de son Canot, 
s^uoir trois a luy appartenant, et deux qu'il auoit empruntes, Luy Manuel fut a 


la grande pointe, ou il faisoit faire du sel, laquelle est a peu pres eloignes dud. 
lieu Boucan de laleu d'vne lieiie, et y mena ses Noirs, et ceux qu*il auoit em- 
prunte aussy a dessein d'y coucher, parce qu'il estoit deja fort tard, et que de lad. 
pointe, il y a plus pres, pour chercher la tortiie, car au boucan de laleu, il n'y en a 
du tout plus, de sorte qu' apres auoir soupe il se coucha, et s'endormit, Croyant que 
ses Noirs fatiguez d'auoir nage 14 : lieiies qu'il y a de St. Denis aud. lieu, alloient 
aussy s'endormir et se reposer, mais il fut bien surpris, lorsque se reueillant le 
matin, il ne trouua aucun de ses noirs, et le fut bien encor d'auantage, quand 
estant retoume de la pointe au boucan de laleu, il n'y trouua plus son Canot les 
Noirs Tayant enleue pendant la Nuit. Malheur jmpreueu, qui ruina led. Manuel 
de Matte, qui estoit auparauant vn des forts habitans de Tlsle. 

II sera difficile, tant qu'il y aura des Canots, et des Noirs dans Tlsle, d'em- 
pecher ces sortes d'Enleuemens de Canots, parce qu'ils ont sgeu comme Je Tay dit 
cy deuant, que ceux qui auoient partis, s'estoient heureusement rendus a Mada- 
gascar. Ce n'est pourtant pas assurement que Ton n'ait donne tous les ordres 
possibles, pour empecher ces sortes d'accidens; mais voyant que tout ce que Ton 
auoit fait jusques la se trouuoit jnutile, Je n'y pris autrement que J'en auois encor 
fait, apres auoir aussy pris Tauis du sieur Boucher a ce sujet, Je fis assembler tous 
les habitans, affin de me consulter auec Eux, pour trouuer les moyens les plus 
propres a obuier a ces Enleuemens de Canots, qui arriuoient si frequament, et 
voicy de la maniere, dont je leur parlay. 

"De Par le Roy et la Royale Compagnie de france. 
"Vous sgaurez. Messieurs, que la seule raison, pour laquelle Je vous fais 
assembler, n'est autre chose, que la veritable part, que je prens a tous les malheurs, 
qui vous arriuent, et pour vous faire connoitre les veritables chagrins que j*ay 
ressenty a Toccasion de plusieurs Canots, qui ont este enleues par des Negres, 
ce qui a cause des pertes considerables a plusieurs d'Entre vous parce qu*en 
vous enleuant vos Canots, cela vous empeche de joiiir du meme priuilege que les 
autres ont d'aller a la Tortiie, ce qui fait vne grande partie de votre nouriture, et 
que vos Noirs s'enfuyant de la fagon, qu'ils ont deja fait dans quatre Canots, 
qu'ils ont enleue sans espoir de les recouurer jamais, cela vous met dans Tentiere 
impuissance de cultiuer vos terres, de sorte que dans Tenleuement des Canots 
par les Negres, vous deues considerer ces deux choses, comme a vous tres preju- 
diciables, et ce qui peut causer votre ruine entiere, et peut estre pire, Vous 
sgaues tous. Messieurs, que si ce malheur est arriue plusieurs fois, que Ton ne m en 
peut attribuer la faute, y ayant mis des la premiere, autant d'ordre, qu'il m'a 
este possible, pour empecher, que cela n'arriuat d'auantage, mais tous les soins 
que Je me suis donne a ce sujet, se sont trouues jnutiles, et ce assurement par la 
faute, et negligence de ceux qui ont les Canots en leur disposition, et qui, 
Dependant, ne manquent jamais de trouuer de si bonnes Excuses, pour se dis- 
culper de leur peu de soin, que Ton ne peut trouuer occasion de les punir de leur 
faute ; C'est pourquoy Nous auons juge apropos de vous faire tous assembler, affin 
que Nous deliberions ensemble de ce que Ton peut faire de plus essentiel, pour 
euiter ces sortes d'accidens, qui Nous pouroient estre plus sensibles dans la suite, 
qu'ils ne Tont este jusqu'a present, car il est a craindre que les Negres ne se ren- 
fermant point dans les bornes de s'enfuir sans faire aucun mal, pouroient si bien 


prendre leur temps, qu'il Nous feroient mal passer le Notre, ayant le recours dc 
s'enfuir dans les Canots, C'est pourquoy Torsque chacun de vous aura donne son 
sentiment, et signe les articles qui seront faits par la presente deliberation, il ne 
sera plus en votre pouuoir de trouuer aucune Excuse, qui vous puisse exemptei* 
de subir les peines, qui y seront portees, puisque vous y aures donn6 Votre Con-

Le 28e. mars, 1706: le sieur Boucher se transporta, a I'endroit, ou est cette 
pretendiie Eaiie minerale, de laquelle il a este cy deuant parle, parce qu'il auoit 
plu tout ce mois la, et par consequent tous les bassins, et reseruoirs, des Rauines 
deuoient estre pleins, mais il s'est trouue que cette Eaii n'a pas plus de vertu que

Enleuetnent du Canot de la Compagnie 

Le ise. de may, 1706: le Canot de la Compagnie fut enleue par cinq de ses 
Negres, et vn sixieme, a moy appartenant, nommez Domingue, Alphonse, Philipes, 
Antoine Sil, Jean baptiste, ce dernier est vn jeune Negre, dont la Compagnie 
auoit herite de lean Botiin philibustier, et Antoine a moy appartenant, ce Canot 
fut enleue de la maniere du Monde la plus extraordre. et a laquelle on se seroit 
le moins attendu, car de ces six Negres, il n'y en auoit que quatre de complot, 
lesquels forcerent les deux autres a les suiure, et voicy de la maniere que la chose 
se passa. 

Je les fis partir de St. Denis a dessein d'aller chercher de la tortiie, le sieur 
Boucher, et moy primes cette occasion, pour aller a St. Paul, affin de terminer 
quelques differends, qui estoient entre Gilles Launay, et frauQois Bouchez habitans 
dud. quartier, au sujet de leurs emplacemens a St. Gilles, le sieur Le Preuost 
estoit aussy dans le Canot et comme il estoit feste ce jour la. Nous debarquames 
a la possession tous trois, affin de Nous rendre plus viste a St. Paul par la 
commodite des cheuaux, et y estre a temps, pour entendre la Ste. Messe, car Nous 
estions partis de St. Denis vne heure auant le jour a ce dessein; en debarquant, je 
commanday a Nicolas Cruo, matelot, reste icy malade du Vaisseau du Roy, La 
Mutine, qui gouuemoit le Canot, de faire ses diligences, pour se rendre a temps 
s'il se pouuoit a St. Paul, pour y entendre la Messe. Enuiron vn quart d'heure 
apres que Nous fumes debarques, I'vn des quatre, qui auoient fait le Complot^ 
nomme Alphonse, se leua du banc, ou il nageoit, et vint en arriere du canot sans 
faire paroitre aucun manuals dessein, et mit tout d'vn coup la main sur la barre 
du gouuemail, en disant a ce Nicolas d'aller nager a sa place, parceque, disoit il, 
les mains luy faisoient mal ; Nicolas luy demanda de quoy il s'auisoit, et qu'il ne 
vouloit point aller nager, il prit meme la chose, pour vne raillerie, mais il vit bientot 
apres qu'elle ne Testoit pas, car led. Alphonse plus port que luy, le poussa 
vigoureusement contre le Canot, et luy mit en meme temps vn grand couteau 
flamand siu- I'estomac, auec lequel il alloit le tuer, si Domingue ne luy eut dit, 
0c le tue pas, c'est vn bon gargon, et en meme temps se saisit d'vne sabre, que Ton 


portoit ordinairement dans le Canot, pour tenir les Noirs dans le respect, et dit aux 
autres, allons, il n'y a plus de gouuemeur icy, C'est moy qui suis le Capitaine, il 
y eut lean baptiste et Antoine Sil, qui comme n'estant point du complot, voulurent 
raisonner, ne pouuant faire autre chose, car ce n'estoit que deux jeunes Negres, 
qui n'auoient ny asses de forces, ny asses de Coeur, pour s'opposer autrement a 
quatre grands Coquins ; Mais led. Domingue les empecha bien viste de raisonner, 
en les frapant a grands coups du sabre duquel il s'estoit saisy, et Is fit bien nager 
a force malgre Eux : pendant tout ce demesle, Mon Noir Masta le Canot, et mit la 
voile au vent, et led. Alphonse ne discontiniiant point de serrer de pres led. 
Nicolas, dans le doute s'il le tueroit, ou Non ; mais Torsqu'il vit que la voile estoit 
au vent, il ne balanqa plus, sur ce qu'il auoit a faire, car il le jetta a la Mer, d'ou il 
eut beaucoup de peine a se sauver, ne sgachant presque point nager, apres quoy 
ils tirerent enfin au large, et on n.e les a pas veu depuis. 

Voila vn accident bien jmpretieu car on ne croyoit pas qu'il y eut des viures 
dans le Canot ; mais il est a presumer, que comme on s'est embarque la Nuit, qu'ils 
en auoient mis dans le Canot, et d'autant plus malheur encor, que Nicolas n'estoit 
seul de blanc dans le Canot que pour jusqu'a St. Paul seulement, car Frangois 
Grondin habitant de St. Denis estoit deja a St. Paul, qui y attendoit le Canot, 
pour faire le voyage a la torttie pour moy, car je n'y enuoyois jamais que je ne 
mis deux blancs dans le Canot ; on se doutoit d'autant moins de ces Noirs la, qu'il 
n'y en auoit qu'vn seul des six, qui fut de Madagascar. 

Desole de voir, que toutes les mesures, que j'auois prises pour empecher ces 
enleuemens, de Canots, se trouuoient jnutiles, Je fis assembler les habitans, et leur 
fis connoitre que les demiers articles qui auoient este faits n'estoient point ass^s 
forts, ny sufBsans, pour obuier aux Enleuemens de Canots par les Negres, Je leur 
proposay les Articles suiuans, qui furent acceptes par Eux. 


Qui doiuent estre obserues par les habitans de Tlsle de Bourbon, pour la 
conseruation des biens publics, Veu plusieurs Accidens, qui sont arriues 
par des Canots, qui ont este enleues par des Negres sgauoir. 


QUE tous les Canots, qui partiront pour aller a la Tortiie, les habitans seront 
obliges d'y aller trois blancs dedans, quand meme il y auroit plusieurs Canots, il 
f audra qu'il y ait trois blancs, dans chaque Canot. 


QUE des trois blancs, qui seront dans le Canot ils seront obliges de rester de 
chaque Canot deux blancs armes pour le garder, pendant que le troisieme blanc 
conduira les Noirs, pour charoyer la torttie, et cela pendant le jour seulement, et 
la Nuit, tous les blancs et Noirs se rangeront a leur Canots. 

QUE le blanc qui conduira les Noirs a la tortiie, gardera vn Couteau, qu'il 
ne donnera aux Noirs, que pour ouurir seulement la tortiie, et apreter leur manger. 


apres quoy il le reprendra, obseruant de Ne laisser aucuns couteaux aux Noirs, 
ny meme aucunes armes offensiues, ny deffensiues, non plus dans les Canots, qu'a 

QUE aucuns des blancs, qui iront dans les Canots n'jront a la Chasse ; leur 
estant permis d'y aller par terre, ou tout au plus de N'y aller qu'vn. 

QUE, tous Canots, qui partiront, soit pour aller a la tortiie, ou autre part, 
sans qu'il y ait trois blancs dedans, chacun des blancs, qui seront dedans payeront 
Cinquante Ecus d'amende, moitie apliquable aux Eglises de lisle, et Tautre moitie 
a la Compagnie et ceux qui n'auront pas de quoy satisfaire a lad. somme, seront 
vne annee entiere au Cachot. 


QUE, si les deux blancs, qui garderont le Canot, le quittent, et que Ton puisse 
le prouuer, que le Canot soit enleue, ou non, ils payeront Cinquante Ecus chacun 
pour punition d'auoir quitte leurs postes, le tout apliquable comme dessus, et vn 
an de cachot, pour ceux qui n'auront pas le moyen de payer lad. somme. 

QUE, si quelqu'vn a connoissance, que quelqu' autre aye quitte son Canot, il 
sera condamne a la meme amende, et punition, s'il n'en auertit. 


QUE Les families, qu n'auront pas suffisament de blancs, pour mettre dans 
leiu's Canots, et qui en emprunteront, remplaceront les joumees desd. Blancs, 
auec leurs Noirs, a s^uoir journee, pour joumee.

Coupe des beufs a la Compagnie 

Complot de deux Negres, pour tuer le Nomme frangois Bouchez habitant 

Le Samedy I4e, de luin, 1706: Loiiis, Negre Esclaue de frangois Bouchez 
resident a St. Gilles, estant a garder les beufs, il rencontra Marc Mare, et henry 
Negres Esclaues de Pierre Parny, fugitifs depuis plusieurs mois dans les Mon- 
tagnes, lesquels ayant approche dud. Loiiis, led. Marc Mare luy dit, que luy ny 
son Camarade n'auoient pas voulu se cacher de luy, parce qu'ils le connoissoient 
pour bon gargon, et qu'ils estoient seurs qu'il ne les denonceroit pas, led. Lotiii 
luy repondit, qu'ils pouuoient s'en assurer, sur cela led. Marc repartit si je s<jauois 
que tu fus fidele, comme tu le dis. Nous te declarerions quelque chose, a quoy led. 
Loiiis ayant repondu, qu'ils se pouuoient en toute surete fier a luy, C'est que, dit 
led. Marc Mare, Nous Voulons aller chez ton maitre le tuer, se saisir de ses 
Armes, et Nous enfuir dans vn petit canot, qui est a St. Gilles pour aller a 
Madagascar, il ne tiendra qu'a toy d'estre de Notre partie, et comme ton maitre 
a vne jambe de bois. Nous irons Nous niettre a genoux deuant luy, feignant de le 
prier de Nous remener chez notre Maitre, et d'obtenir de luy le pardon de Notre 
maronnage, et en meme temps. Nous le saisirons par sa jambe de bois, le terras- 
serons, et le tiierons a coups de couteau, et pour cet effet Nous prendrons notre 
temps le samedy au soir prochain, que ta maitresse sera allee a St. Paul, pour 
entendre dimanche la Messe parceque, dans le dessein, que Nous auons. Nous 
n'apprehendons qu'elle, et si tu veux estre des notres, tu n'as qu*a te trouuer led. 
jour samedy au soir, proche la palissade des Cannes et tu Nous diras, s'il fait bon 
pour Texecution de Notre entreprise, demande aussy a ton camarade Pierre 
Cadou s41 en veut estre, et pendant le temps d'jcy a samedy Nous allons faire 
des auirons, et des viures dans le bois a quoy led. Loiiis feignit de consentir, et 
leur promit d'en parler a son camarade, et de se trouuer ensemble au lieu assigne 
led. jour samedy au soir, et s'etant mutuelement promis fidelite, ils se quitterent, et 
led. Loiiis vint auertir son maitre de tout ce qui se passoit, lequel en enuoya aussy- 
tost donner auis au sieur Aubert, capne. du quartier de St. Paul, lequel eiuioya 
Nuitament quatre hommes a St. Gilles, auec ordre de ne se point montrer, et de se 
saisir desd. Noirs, au moment qu'ils voudroient faire leur coup. Led. jour samedy 
au soir, ige. de luin, 1706: lesd. Loiiis, et pierre Cadou, furent au lieu assigne 
par lesd. Marc Mare et henry, qui ne manquerent pas de s'y trouuer Munis de 
trois auirons qu'ils auoient fait dans le bois, et de quelques viures qu'ils auoient 
voles aux habitans, qui ont leurs bestiaux aux enuirons de St. Gilles, la premiere 
chose qu'ils demanderent, ce fut si Toccasion estoit fauorable, a quoy ils 
repondirent que Ton ne pouuoit pas choisir vn meilleur temps, que leur maitre 


•estoit seul a la maison, led. Marc Mare, repliqua, allons, il le faut aller tuer, et son 
<:amarade henry y consentit: mais lesd. Lotiis, et Cadou repondirent il ne fauf point 
tuer notre maitre; prenons seulement le Canot, et Nous en fuyons; mais led. 
Marc Mare n'y voulu point consentir, et persistant dans son manuals dessein^ 
dit qu'il falloit necessairement Taller tuer, pour se saisir de ses armes, affin de se 
deffendre dans le Canot, s'ils estoient poursuiuis, et que puisque la chose auoit 
este ainsy resoliie, il ne falloit point manquer de coeur pour Teffectuer ; mais son 
camarade henry, ayant donne dans le sentiment desd. Loiiis, et Cadou, il ne put 
seul aller tuer led. Bouchez, et se resolut enfin, mais malgre luy de se contenter 
dialler enleuer le Canot, et furent a cet effet, jusqu'au bord de la Mer, tous 
quatre ensemble, lesd. Loiiis, et Cadou agissans comme s'ils eussent este verita- 
blement dans leur complot la, ils roulerent le Canot, jusques dans la lame, mais 
les quatre hommes armes, qui estoient en Embuscade, coururent tout a coup 
dessus, et les saisirent, ils les amenerent a St. Paul, et les remirent entre les mains 
du sieur Aubert, qui les fit mettre aux fers, d'ou led. Marc Mare se sauua et 
retourna Maron, led. henry fut mene a St. Denis, ou il fut jnterroge le 22e. dud. 
mois de luin, lequel se dechargea de tous les faits cy dessus, sur son camarade 
pourquoy on le retint dans les prisons, jusqu'a la prise dud. Marc Mare. 


Revise de Marc Mare 

Le le. luilet, 1706: led. Marc Mare se rendit a St. Paul au nomme Antoine 
Payet habitant, qui le remit entre les mains du sieur Boucher, et il fut emprisonne 
a St. Denis, le I2e. il fut jnterroge, aussy bien que son camarade henry deuant 
Moy, et plusieurs habitans assembles a ce sujet, le 136. ils furent confrontes auec 
led. Loiiis, et Cadou, temoins deposans contr' Eux, et led. Marc Mare s'estant 
en tout trouue le plus coupable, ayant luy meme aupiie auoir entrepris le fait cy 
dessus, porte la parole, pour y solliciter les autres, et auoir fait plusieurs 
vols aux habitans, il fut condamne le I4e. a estre pendu, et Strangle, jusqu'a ce 
que Mort s'ensuiue dans le quartier de St. Paul, par les mains de Texecuteur des 
hautes oeuures, ce qui fut execute led. jour, et led. henry son Camarade, d'auoir

Cinq vaisseaux passes a la veiie de VIsle 
Ordonnance au supet des Vols faits dans la riuiere de St. Denis 


Vn vaisseau fourban arriue a VIsle de Bourbon 

Le I7e. decembre, 1706: parut sur les cinq heures du soir vn vaisseau a la 
veiie de Ste. Suzanne, et le lendemain, i8e. il mouilla en rade de St. Denis, a 9: 
heures du matin : le sieur Boucher estoit en ce temps la a St. Paul, auss)rtost que 
Je fus auerty de la veiie de ce vaisseau, je luy enuoyay vn Expres a St. Paul, et 
vn canot a la possession, affin qu'il se rendit incessament a St. Denis, ou il ne put 
se rendre par Mer, parcequ'elle estoit trop agitee, et que la bise qui venoit directe- 
ment de St. Denis estoit extremement forte, ce qui Tobligea a faire le chemin par 
terre, et fit qu'il ne put se rendre a St. Denis, qu'a 5. heures du soir dud. jour,. 
i8e. ou estant enfin arriue il aprit que led. vaisseau estoit vn fourban, de 30. 
pieces de Canons, et de 200; hommes portans les armes, que le quartier Maitre 
Anglois de Nation, Nomme Dauid estoit venu le matin a terre, auec vn jnterprete 
fran^ois pour demander des viures, et lafraichissemens, me disant qu'ils en 
estoient dans vne extreme necessite, et qu'il y auoit trois mois, qu'ils ne mangeoient 
que du ris a TEau, et encor fort peu; a quoy ne voulant point auoir egard, je lui 
fis r^ponse, que s'il leur manquoit quelque chose, que ce n'estoit point a cette jsle, 
qu'ils le deuoient venir chercher, et qu'enfin, ils pouuoient s'en aller sans pretendre 
aucun soulagement de cette jsle; led. quartier Maitre me repondit qu'il alloit 
informer la Compagnie, (C'est ainsy qu'ils se traittent entr'eux) de ma reponse ; ce 
qu'il, et estant reuenu peu de temps apres a terre, il me dit que le sentiment du 
Capitaine, qui se nommoit Thomas Oiiet et celuy de la Compagnie estoit d'auoir 
du moins de I'Eau, et quelq. Cabrits, que cela leur estoit absolument necessaire, 
et me prioient de ne le leur pas refuser, qu'en tout cas il leur en f alloit : ce qu'ayant 
entendu les habitans, ils s'ficrierent d'vne commune voix, et me dirent qu'il les 
falloit receuoir, que cela ne se pouuoit pas autrement, que pas vn d'Eux n'auoit le 
sol, pour acheter leurs necessites dans les magasins de la Compagnie et que les 
effets que lad. Compagnie pouuoit enuoyer, resteroient dans lesd. magasins, Eux 
estant dans I'jndigence de les pouuoir acheter, et qu'au surplus, ils ne se vouloient 
point exposer au desespoir de gens affames, qui en cet Etat, estoient capables de 
tout entreprendre, et pouuoient faire ce qui leur auroit plu ayant la force en main. 
M. De St. Germain, pretre desseruant les paroisses de St. Denis, et Ste. Suzanne, 
appuya fort les raisons des habitans, et ayant pris du papier, vne plume, et de 
I'ancre, il fit vne requete, qu'il signa le premier, et apres luy tons les habitans, et 
me la presenta ; Je me trouuay oblige quoyque contre ma volonte, de les receuoir,. 


€t de leur promettre qu'ils seroient soulages de leurs plus g^andes Necessites, qui 
consistoient en de TEaiie, du bois et quelques Cabrits ; telles f urent les nouuelles, 
que le sieur Boucher apprit, en arriuant a St. Denis, Je luy temoignay du chagrin 
de m'estre trouue oblige a receuoir ce vaisseau, et luy communiquay la requetc, 
qui m'auoit este presentee, elle estoit conqiie en ces termes. 

[La Requite:] 

"Le i8e. jour de decembre, 1706: sur les 8. heures du matin, ayant paru vn 
Tiauire a la coste de St. Denis, portant pauillon Anglois, et ayant enuoye sa chaloupe

dont ils manquoient, Monsieur De Villers gouuemeur pour le Roy, et la Royalle 
Compagnie de f ranee en cette jsle de Bourbon, les ayant refuse, les gens ont 
repondu, que veu leurs pressans besoins, ils se voyoient contraints de chercher 
des viures de force, si on leur en refusoit degre, a quoy les habitans ayant con- 
sidere leur peu de forces, qu'ils n'estoient point en estat de resister a vn nauire, 
dont TEquipage estoit de 200 : hommes, voyant d'ailleurs qu'ils ne pouuoient rien 
auoir, ny du Magasin, ny des Vaisseaux de france, sans argent, de quoy ils 
manquoient, et sans quoy, ils ne pouuoient faire subsister leur families, Ce Con-

obliges de receuoir led. Nauire, qui estoit le moyen d'Entretenir la Colonnie, 
conformement aux ordres de Sa Ma j este, et de Messieurs les directeurs de la 
Compagnie et qu'y contreuenant, ce seroit formellement s'y opposer: C'est pour-

midy, vis a vis de St. Denis, enuiron 3 : lieiies au large, mais, il passa tout droit, 
vis a vis de St. Paul, et fut jusqu'au boucan de Taleu, ou il enuoya sa Chaloupe 
a terre pleine de bariques, croyant que ce fut vn lieu propre a faire de TEaiie, ou 
lis trouuerent vn Noir appartenant a Pierre hibon, auquel vn Interprete frangois, 
qui estoit dans la Chaloupe, demanda, s'il n'y auoit pas moyen de faire de TEaiie, 
a quoy led. Noir repondit, qu'il falloit pour cela aller a St. Paul, et leur demanda 


qui Us estoient, ils luy dirent seulement qu'ils venoient de suede, et qu'ils auoient 
grand besoin d'Eaiie, qu'ils prioient led. Noir d'aller faire du feu dans I'endroit, 
ou Ton faisoit TEau. led. Noir estant venu a St. Paul en auertir, on fit faire du 
feu sur Tance, mais il n'y vint point, et on ne I'a pas veu depuis. 


Vn Vaisseau fourban arrive a VIsle commande par Ion laiiis 

Le ige. May, 1707: il parut vn vaisseau a la veiie du quartier de St. Paul 
sur les 6. heures du matin, lequel venant bout a terre, sur les 8. a 9: heures, il 
estoit enuiron a vne lieue, et demye, de terre, j'enuoya vn canot, et sept hommes 
armes auec ordre, si ce n'estoit point vn vaisseau de france, de ne point aller a 
bord ; le Canot estant done alle seulement a la portee de la voix, il demanda quel 
vaisseau c'estoit, et on leur repondit seulement, qu'ils estoient Anglois sortis depuis 
deux ans de la bourmonde, ils firent leur possible pour engager de Canot d'aller a 
bord, mais ceux qui estoient dedans leur ayant repondu que cela leur estoit 
deffendu par Moy gouuemeur, ils reuinrent a terre, sans que la vaisseau fit aucune 
violence pour les obliger d'aller a bord. pendant toute la joumee du ipe. ils ne 
moiiillerent point, et se tinrent tou jours a la meme distance de terre, ce qui Nous 
inquietoit vn peu, se s<;achant quel dessein pouuoit auoir ce vaisseau, le lendemain 
2oe. il moiiilla, sur les deux heures apres midy, la chaloupe vint a terre, et le 
quartier Maitre, qui estoit descendu, me dit, qu'ils estoient des Anglois de la bour-

qu'il me prioit, aussy bien que tout I'Equipage de leur vouloir faire foumir de 
I'Eau, du bois, et quelques rafraichissemens, de quoy aller jusqu'a Ste. Marie; 
qu'ils auoient fort peu d'argent; Mais que si Je voulois, ils auoient des mar- 
chandises, desquelles ils acommoderoient Tjsle a fort bon compte; Je leur fis 
reponse, qu'ils estoient fourbans, que cela suffisoit, pour ne receuoir aucun soulage- 
ment de cette jsle, que quand meme Je leur accorderois des rafraichissemens, Je ne 
leur permettrois jamais de faire commerce seulement d'vne piece de marchandise ; 
mais enfin, pour toute conclusion, Je ne leur pouuois accorder ny Tvn ny Tautre, 
et qu'ils pouuoient aller a Ste. Marie ainsy qu'ils I'auoient projette, les habitans 
estant presens a Tout ce que dessus, me presenterent la requete suiuante. 

"A Monsieur De Villers, Gouuemeur pour le Roy et la Royale Compagnie 
des Indes Orientales de france, dans Tlsle de Bourbon. 
"Supplient humblement Nous habitans du quartier de St. Paul, jsle de Bourbon, 
Remontrans, que le 2oe. de May, 1707: Vn Nauire corsaire de 30: canons, et de 
100 : hommes d'Equipage estant venu moiiiller a notre rade de St. Paul, et demand- 
ant a faire de I'Eaiie du bois, et quelques rafraichissemens ; Voyant que Nous ne 
sommes point en estat de Nous opposer a Eux, et qu'ils pouuoient en faire malgre 
Nous, et de plus, se voyant refuses pouroient se porter a quelque violence, en 
faisant descente a terre. Nous Vous prions, Monsieur, de Vouloir bien, qu'il leur 
soit permis de faire de TEau, du bois, et a Nous de leur foumir quelques rafraich- 
issemens, affin de Nous mettre a couuert des jnsultes, qu'ils pouroient faire a 
rjsle: fait a St. Paul, le 2oe. may, 1707 : Isle de bourbon, sous nos signes. 


Considerans de plus, que s'ils rencontroient quelques vaisseaux de la Com- 
pagnie en Mer, ils le pouroient prendre en vengeance du refus, qui leur auroit este 
fait icy, ce qui seroit la plus grande de Nos peines, estant tous zeles aux jnterets 
de lad. Compagnie. Ainsy signe a Toriginal Pierre Marquer cure, comme present,

Je me trouuay ainsy oblige de permettre aud. fourbans de faire de TEau, du 
bois, et de prendre quelque peu de rafraichissems. mais Je leur deffendis de 
descendre aucunes marchandises a terre, et deffendis pareillement a tous les 
habitans, sous de grosses peines, d'en prendre aucune piece, sous quelque pretexte 
que se put estre: led. vaisseau ne tarda icy, que le 21 : et le 22e. : le 23e. il remit

Vne chaloupe mise a terre a la basse ValUe 

Le 22e. dud. mois de May, 1707: il arriua a cette Isle vne chaloupe auec 
trois Anglois dedans, lesquels auoient deserte d'vn vaisseau Anglois a Maurice, 
d'ou ils vinrent sans Eau, et sans Viures ; ils jetterent leur Chaloupe, au premier 
endroit de Tjsle, ou ils purent aborder, ne pouuant plus endurer la faim; Ce fut a 
la basse Vallee, qu'ils mirent a terre, et furent quatre jours a se rendre, jusqu'au 
boucan de laleu, ou ils trouuerent des canots, qui estoient a la tortiie, qui les 
menerent a St. Paul, et de la, a St. Denis a Moy, et me conterent leur desertion de 
Maurice, et me demanderent azile dans Tlsle, ce que Je leur accorday en con- 
sideration de ce qu'ils se retireroient sous le pauillon frangois, et que meme, ils 
etoient catholiques romains. J'enuoyay douze hommes pour chercher lad. chaloupe ; 
mais ils la trouuerent toute brisee, et hors d'£tat de rendre aucun seruice.

qu'il faisoit de TEau de tous les costes, il estoit meme abandonne, estant hors d'£tat 
de rendre aucun seruice. ils prirent led. canot sur Tance de St. Paul, et il ne 
peut estre que tres certain que lesd. Noirs ont infailHblement pery a la Mer.

mal nourris, et de plus meme, qu'ils estoient Catholiquess romains, ce qui auoient 
fait, qu'ils n'auoient pu rester dans vn lieu, ou ils ne pouuoient faire Texercice de 
leur religion, ils Nous apprirent pour toutes nouuelles, qu'il y auoit a Maurice vn 
Nauire hollandois qui deuoit partir dans huit jours, pour aller au Cap. la Chaloupe

Arriuee de la fregate la St, Louis a cette jsle, venant de Pondichery 

Le I7e. dud. mois de Nouemb. 1707: la fregate de la royale Compagnie le 
St. Loiiis, mouilla a cette Isle en rade de St. Denis, laquelle y auoit este enuoyee 
par M. Du Liuier gouuerneur de Pondichery, auec vn petit chargement de 
Marchandises, pour estre icy vendues, mais le veritable motif de ce voyage, comme 
Nous Ta fait sgauoir monsieur le gouuerneur Du Liuier, a este pour tacher de 
tirer d'jcy quelques Emprunts, vne seconde fois, affin de se soutenir a Pondichery, 
jusqu'a Tarriuee des Vaisseaux, qui auoient passe par la Mer du sud, qu41 n'atten- 
doit qu'au mois d'aoust, en 1708: Nous assurant que le premier secours, que 
Nous luy anions fait tenir par le meme Vaisseau, leur auoit este d'vn grand secour 
pour Tentretien de la forteresse, qui estoit sur le point d'estre perdiie de fond en 
comble, Ce qui Nous a engage tres fortement a faire tout notre possible pour pro- 
curer a la Compagnie de Nouueaux Emprunts, y ayant aussy contribue de Notre 
part autant que nos forces Tont pu permettre, puisque le sieur Boucher en son 
particulier ayant encor prete mil Ecus, il ne luy est reste vn sol, les emprunts 
en general, que Nous auons fait sur cette jsle, dans cette seconde occasion, et que 
Nous auons enuoye sur led. vaisseau a Pondichery se montent a 32700: 11 ayant 
deliure des contrats a chaque particulier, pareils aux premiers [c'est a dire, a dix 
pour cent d'jnterest] lesquels, M. Le Gouuerneur Duliuier Nous a marque 
approuuer en leur entier ; a TEgard des marchandises et Esclaues charges sur led. 
batiment, on en fit la vente d'vne partie a St. Denis, au plus grand auantage, que 
Ton put de la Compagnie, et le 26e. du meme mois, M. Bou)aiot Capne. de lad. 
fregate, auec lequel tout a este conjointement fait, mit a la voile, pour aller a St. 
Paul, apres auoir fait faire a St. Denis des mas et Vergues, ou estant arriue le 
meme jour, on fit debarquer la plus grande partie des marchandises, en ayant fort 
peu este Vendues, a St Denis, ou la vente de partie d'jcelle ayant este faite, le 


tout ensemble de lad. vente, tant a St. Denis, qu'a St. Paul se monte a 20588 : 11 et 
n'ayant que vendre la tout, le sieur Boucher s'est charge du reste, pour en rendre 
compte a la Compagnie. enfin lad. vente finie, les emprunts faits, et les rafrai- 
chissems. ayant este deliures, aud. Nauire, dont M. Boiiynot preta Targent a la 
Compagnie pour payer les habitans ne voulant pas toucher aux deniers de la Com- 
pagnie, il remit a la voile la Nuit du loe. au lie. de decembre, pour retourner a 
Pondichery, ou Je prie Dieu, de tout mon coeiu*, qu'il le conduise.

Cheualier hebert, enuoye du Roy dans les Indes, et Directeur general de la Royale 
Compagnie et en cette qualite, vn des seigneurs de cette jsle, auquel le sieur 
Boucher a rendu ses Comptes, qui ont este par luy arretes ; Nous luy apprimes, a 
son arriuee la mort de Monsieur Le Cheualier Martin, gouuerneur de Pondichery, 
et Tetablissement de Mr. Pierre Du Liui^r en sa place, et les emprunts, qu'il auoit 
este oblige de faire a cette Isle, pour la conseruation de Pondichery lequel auroit 
este entierement perdu sans ce secours, il a ratifie, et aprouue les contrats que. 
Nous en auons faits au Nom de la Compagnie, et Nous a marque qu'elle auroit de 
la reconnoissance du secours, qu'elle auoit tire de cette Isle, dans ses pressans 
besoins, et auroit soin d'en faire exactement acquitter les contrats. 

Le sieur Boucher a aussy remis a M. Le Cheualier hebert cette pierre de 
Soulphre, de laquelle il est cy deuant parle, s'estant charge de la faire rendre a 
Mrs Les Directeurs generaux, il a aussy fait plusieurs recherches, pour decouurir 
quelque chose, qui fut vtile a la Compagnie, et qui put luy estre profitable, et a 
pour ce sujet fait vn marche auec le nomme Victor Riuerain habitant, pour la 
culture du tabacq, qui est que Ton fourniroit six Noirs de la Compagnie et la, 
terre aud. Riuerain, et qu'il retireroit vn cinquieme pour sa part des soins qu'il se 
donneroit pour la culture du tabac, et a donne ordre aud. sieur Boucher de vendre 
la quantite, qui en viendroit a la Compagnie, ou de I'enuoyer en france, Torsqu'il 
ne poura estre vendu, il luy a aussy deliure des ordres, pour le remboursement, 
tant des emprunts, que des Interets, qui seront echus, si possible est de vendre, 
les eflFets restans aux magazins, et m'a aussy deliure diuers ordres, portans a ce 
qui peut estre profitable a la Compagnie ; led. vaisseau estant fort jncommode, M. 
De La Mare fit faire des Courbes et autres pieces de bois, pour le racommoder 
aux Indes, ou il seroit decide a Pondichery de TEnuoyer. 

II mit a la voile de St. Denis le 7e. may, pour aller a St. Paul, ou il arriua 
le 8e. au matin, ou ayant donne la bande au vaisseau, et pris les rafraichissemens 
necessaires, il repartit d'jcy le i8e. May, a 6: heures du matin pour aller a Pon- 
dichery, ou Je prie le Seigneur qu'il le conduise a bon port

Suzanne par le Noir a Grondin qui surpris de le voir, luy demanda, s'il n'auoit 
pas deserte dans ce petit canot, qui auoit este enleue a quoy il repondit qu'oiiy, 
mais qu'a vn lieiie de terre le Canot auoit renuerse et les deux autres s'estoient

son maitre, il se rendoit maron; de quoy ayant este auerty, Je fis courir apres,

multiplians de jour a autre, et plus aujourd'huy, que jamais, il ne se pent faire 
autrement que Nous ne demandions, quand Nous en aurons besoin les lieux qui

Arriiiee du vaisseau Le St, Louis a son retour des Indes 

Le I7e. d'Auril, 1709 : parut vn vaisseau, sur les dix heures du matin, vis a 
vis la riuiere des pliiyes, deux lieiies au vent de St. Denis, auec pauillon blanc, 
lequel estant en rade, sans y auoir moiiille, enuoya sa chaloupe a terre me donner 
auis que le vaisseau etoit le St Louis, non plus Commande par M. De Lamarre, 
ny M. Dubocq qui auoient este demontes a Pondichery par M. Le Cheualier 
hebert, mais par M. de Boissieux Lieutenant de vaisseau, qui estoit cy deuant 
commandant des troupes a Pondichery et que M. De Charanuille sous brigadier 
de se rendre a St. Paul estoit pour tacher a raccommoder le deuant du vaisseau, 
ayant este nomme par M. Le Cheualier hebert au gouuemement de cette jsle, 
comme aussy le sieur Dharambourq secretaire pour la Cbmpe. a la place du sieur 

Le Vaisseau n'ayant point moiiille a St. Denis, fut droit a St. Paul, ou il 
motiilla le i8e. a 4 : heures du matin, I'empressement que M. De Boissieux auoit 
de se rendre a St. Paul estoit pour tacher a raccommoder le deuant du vaisseau, 
par ou il faisoit beaucoup d'Eaiie, et que la rade de St. Paul est beaucoup plus 
propre a cela, que celle de St. Denis, aussytost, qu'il y fut arriue, C'est a quoy il 
commenga a trauailler, pour cet effet, il fit charger le vaisseau sur le derriere, le 
plus qu'il luy fut possible, affin d'Eleuer le deuant hors de TEaiie et y aporter le 
remede necessaire, ou trouua quelques bordages fort piques devers, on crut que ce 
pouroit bien estre vne partie de la cause de TEaiie, que faisoit le vaisseau. C'est 
pourquoy on Tfileua, et on y en mit de tous neufs, on repara aussy quelques 
autres endroits, que Ton trouua en auoir besoin le 2ie. M. De Boissieux fit 
receuoir, et reconnoitre M. de Charanuille, pour gouuemeur et le sr. D'harambourq, 
pour Secretaire, et garde Magazin, le sieur Boucher, et moy leur donnames les 
Auis que Nous crumes les plus conformes, pour la maniere auec laquelle, lis 
deuoient agir, autant que Notre connoissance, et Notre long sejour a Mascarin 
Nous Tont pu acquerir, quant aux effets de la Compe. le sieur Boucher suiuit les 
ordres qui luy auoient este enuoyes par M. le Cheualier hebert. Nous fimes vn 
Inuentaire general de tout ce qui restoit en nature dans les magazins de la Com- 
pagnie, dont le sieur harambourcq se chargea, il en fut signe trois copies Tvne des 
quelles led. sieur Boucher emporte en france, ou il rendra Compte a la Compagnie. 

Les viures, et rafraichissemens, qui estoient necessaires au Vaisseau luy 
ayant este deliures, Nous mimes a la Voile le 24e. a huit heures du soir, dans le 
dessein de faire notre route droit en france, mais le Seigneur ne Tauoit pas ainsy 
ordonne, car on ne fut pas plustost a la voile, qu'ayant fait sonder les pompes, 
pour voir si le trauail que Ton auoit fait au vaisseau auoit este utile, que Ton 
trouua 15: pouces d'Eaue, Cela ne fit pas, d'abord grande jmpression, et Ton 
s'jmagina que se pouuoit estre des futailles, qui pouuoient auoir defonce, et Ton 
crut si bien que c'estoit cela, que TEquipage fut regie a 3. demy chopines d'Eaii 
par jour; mais on fut port surpris que tout le jour 25e. bien loin que TEau 
diminiiai,elle augmentoit toujours,a tel point qu'il ne falloit point quitter la pompe; 
ce qui obligea a tenir conseil, le 26e. au matin ou apparemment, il fut juge, que 
le vaisseau estoit hors d'Etat de faire le voyage, car Ton reuira de bord, et Nous 
retirames a Mascarin, ou Nous Moiiillames en la rade de St. Paul. Le 2y^, M. 


De Boissieux fit decharger ks marchandises, qui estoient depuis le grand Mast 
jusqu'en auant, qui furent au nombre de 250: ballots, que furent loges dans TEglise 
nouuellement construite a St. Paul, il fit aussy debarquer toute TEaiie, et tout le 
bois, et enfin allegea le vaisseau, autant qu'il estoit necessaire, pour decouurir 
seurement cette grande quantite d'Eaiie, a quoy on a, Dieu mercy, heureusement 
reiissy, Car on trouua, que c'estoit par deux gros troux de cheuilles, lesquels 
ayant este rebouchez, et quelques autres endroits du deuant raccommodes, le 
vaisseau a tou jours reste en rade, sans que Ton ait este oblige de pomper vne 
seule fois. 

L'on prit les precautions necessaires, pour entretenir TEquipage, et le nourir 
sans alterer les viures, que Ton reseruoit pour le retour en f ranee, et sans pourtant, 
que cela cauza beaucoup de frais a la Compe. pour cet effet on fit marche auec 
les habitans, pour auoir des bleds et ris, dont les prix furent regies, sgauoir le 
bled, a 4 : Ecus, et le ris a 2 : Ecus le quintal, qui est le plus modique prix que Ton 
le puisse payer a Mascarin quant aux autres viures, Ton a enuoye tous les ven- 
dredis la Chaloupe a St. Denis, dans laquelle il est toujours venue 3 : beufs de la 
Compe. et vne fois le mois, la Chaloupe a la tortiie, cet ordre a este obserue,, 
pendant tout le temps, que le vaisseau a reste a Tlsle. 


Le i8e. de luin, sur les 11 : heures du soir Ton tira a bord du St. Louis, vn 
coup de canon, pour appeller une partie de I'Equipage qui estoit a terre a I'occasion 
d'vn vaisseau, que Ton apergeut a la faueur du clair de la lune a distance d'en- 
uiron 3. quarts de lietie du Moiiillage du coste de la pointe de St. Gilles, sans auoir 
este apergu le jour, auquel coup de canon, ce vaisseau repondu dVn autre; tout 
TEquipage, et les passagers se rendirent en diligence a bord, on continiia a voir ce 
vaisseau, jusqu'au point du jour du ige. qu'il se cacha derriere la pointe du gallet 
et fut jusqu'a vne lieiie du Moiiillage de St. Denis, ou il fut aper^eu a 9 : heures du 
matin; mais n'ayant point juge apropos d'y mouiller, il reuira de bord, et sur le 
midy, il reparut a la pointe du Gallet, ou s'estant trouue en calme, les Courans le 
rejetterent de Tautre coste, et se trouuant vis a vis de la possession du Roy, il 
mit pauillon blanc, y ayant apergu des cazes, et voulant sgauoir quel estoit le 
vaisseau, qu'il auoit veu moiiille a St. Paul, il enuoya sa Chaloupe a terre, pour 
s'en informer, et en meme temps, dire qu'il estoit vn vaisseau frangois de St. Malo, 
de quoy fut informe M. De Boissieux par ceux de la possession a 10 : heures du soir, 
a 2: heures du matin du 2oe. il vint vne Chaloupe dud. vaisseau au St. Lotiis 
prier de faire mettre les feux plus haut, affin qu'ils puissent venir au moiiillage, 
ce que Ton fit, et sur les 8 : heures du matin il moiiilla a coste du St. Louis, sans 
salikr ny le vaisseau, ny la terre, et sans auoir enuoye visiter M. De Boissieux ny 
M. de Charanuille le gouuemeur de L'Isle, ils enuoyerent a terre faire leurs 
Tentes, et y loger leurs malades.

FRANCE IN 1816. 

Paris August 6th 1816. 

Dear Sir 

To my public despatch of this day I will add that the dissensions amongst 
those who are attached to the Royal cause contribute to increase the embarrass- 
ments under which this Government labours, Whatever disaffection may exist it 
cannot at present give any serious cause of alarm, Whilst the foreign powers 
remain united together and their armies in possession of the strong places arc 
within a few days march from Paris none but the most ignorant or desperate 
could think of undertaking any thing against Government. This is so obvious 
that the degree of importance lately given to the undigested plots of a few obscure 
individuals is by some persons, ascribed to the wish of the Ultra Royalists to 
impress the necessity of pursuing the course of severe & unconstitutional measures 
which they have constantly pressed. on the King. It is at all events certain thai 
the present Ministry whose views are more liberal are & will continue to be 
obnoxious to the majority of the House of Deputies who consist chiefly of high 
toned emigrants & their adherents. The King is considered as inclining to the 
moderate party; but that of the Princes occasionally obtains some ascendency 
and produces measures not consistent with the general policy of the ministers. 
These are now generally united together. Vaublanc who was in opposition to 
them having been replaced by Laire. But at the same time Marbois was by a 
kind of compromise also displaced: and his place has not yet been filled. It is 
the general opinion that it is impossible for the present Ministry and the House 
of Deputies to stand together, and a dissolution of the last, or a renewal of our 
fifth have been spoken of. I do not believe, if the Ministry falls, that the change 
will be favorable to us. I am so far personally pleased with the Duke de Riche- 


lieu. It is said that Mr. Hyde de Neuville, who is personally, attached to the 
King, but whose politics are very high toned, would have preferred a place in the 
Ministry, if a change had taken place, to his mission. 

Be pleased to consider all this rather as prevailing reports than as facts within 
my own knowledge. As my means of information improve, my communications 
will I hope become more correct and interesting. But, my dear Sir, in order to 
obtain correct information, you most associate with those from whom alone it 
can be acquired; and here our scanty compensation stands in the way. I have 
however taken a fine hotel, and will live at a much higher rate than my salary 
affords. That will last as long as I can, and if no increase of pay takes place, I 
will ask leave to return. I will only add that owing to the great number of 
strangers residing here the general rate of expenditure is much increased, and 
that the expenses to which a minister is necessarily subject have also been aug- 
mented with the number of ambassadors & Ministers We are now 24 foreign 
ministers here. They live in much apparent harmony nor do I think that there 
is any prospect of actual rupture between any of the sovereigns. From all quar- 
ters, Spain only perhaps excepted, expressions or symptoms of friendly disposition 
and respect for the United States have been manifested. Besides the ministers 
of Portugal Denmark & Saxony, I may mention those of England, Russia and 
also Austria as more particularly showing that disposition 

with sincere respect 
I remain Dear Sir 
your obedt Servt & friend

For the Ybai Ending December 31, 1908. 

January 2, 1909. 

Hon. John Bigelow^ 

President of The New York Public Library. 


I have the honor to submit the following report of the work of this 
Library for the year 1908. 

Since the date of my last report two members of the Board of Trustees 
have died. The Right Rev. Henry Codman Potter, bishop of the Protestant 
Episcopal diocese of New York, and first vice-president of the Board, died 
at his summer home in Cooperstown on July 21, 1908, in the seventy-fifth 
year of his age. He was elected a trustee of the Astor Library on December 
7, 1 88 1, and served as such imtil the formation of The New York Public 
Library, when he was chosen first vice-president of the new corporation, the 
office he held at the time of his death. 

Edward King, president of the Union Trust Company of New York, and 
treasurer of The New York Public Library from the time of consolidation, 
died at his home in this city on November 18, 1908, in the seventy-fifth year 
of his age. He was chosen a trustee of the Astor Library May 14, 1890, and 
from that time served continuously as treasurer of the Astor Library and its 

The death of Edmund S. Whitman at his home in this city on January 
12, 1908, should also be noted. Mr. Whitman had been a trustee of the 
Washington Heights Free Library from 1869 until its consolidation with 
The New York Public Library in 1901, its president since 1881, and after 
consolidation he served as a member of the Committee on Circulation until 
his death. 

Henry W. Taft was chosen a trustee on February 13, 1908, to succeed 
the late Alexander Maitland. 

On April 8, Edwin H. Anderson, director of the New York State 
Library, was elected assistant director of this Library. Mr. Anderson had 
been librarian at Braddock, Pennsylvania, from 1892 to 1895, and had 
organized and administered the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh from 1895 
to 1905 before he went to Albany in 1906. He began his work with us on 


V N 


June I, giving his attention principally to the circulation department and to 
the equipment and finishing of the new central building at Fifth Avenue and 
Forty-second Street 

General Summary. 

The current activity of the Library is shown in the following summary : 

In *{he reference branches during 1908 readers and visitors numbered 
289,546; 212,701 desk applicants consulted 905,030 volumes (corresponding 
figures for 1907 being 199,826 desk applicants and 941,155 volumes). 29,377 
volumes and 65,679 pamphlets were received. 34,024 volumes and 9,870 
pamphlets were accessioned, making the total number available for readers 
758,918 volumes and 283,075 pamphlets, a total of 1,041,993 pieces in the 
reference department, which with the 680,244 volumes in the circulation 
department give an aggregate of 1,722,237 pieces in the whole library. The 
print department now contains 68,285 prints; there has been little increase 
in the music, map, or manuscript departments. There were catalogued 
48,283 volumes and 43^08 pamphlets ; the public catalogues in the Astor and 
L^nox readiqg rooms contain now 1,497,086 cards; the official author cata- 
Ic^ues'at these two buildings contain 1,062,883 cards. 1,766 periodicals 
h^ve been indexed number by number, for which 13,575 cards or printer's 
slips were written. Periodicals currently received amount to 6,457 ; readers 
of current periodicals at the Astor branch numbered 44,506 and these readers 
called for 291,891 single numbers or pieces. 

In the circulation department, the number of branches has increased 
from 37 to 39, volumes, in the department from 621,390 to 680,244, circula- 
tion for home use from 5,490,244 to 6,504,402; 4 Carnegie branches have 
been opened during the y^ar (a total of 28) ; building operations are under 
way on 4 sites ; making a total of 32 sites available for or occupied by Carne- 
gie Buildings. 

The total expenditures for the calendar year 1908 were $832,756.32, of 
which $195^)88.48 was spent for the reference department and $637,667.84 
for the circulation department. 

Of the reference department expenditures $48,999.48 or 25 per cent, went 
for books, binding and periodicals, $111,864.76 or 57 per cent, for salaries; 
$34,224.24 or 17 per cent, for all other purposes. 

Of the circulation department expenditures $203,652.98 or 32 per cent, 
went for books, binding and periodicals; $296,311.78 or 46 per cent, for 
salaries ; $137,703.08 or 22 per cent, for all other purposes. 

Of the circulation department expenditure $577,880.64 came from city 

Below is given in tabular form a comparison of some of the activities of 


this Library and three others. The figures for the Library of Congress and 
the Royal Library at Berlin are taken from the annual reports for 1907/8, 
those for the British Museum from the report for 1906/7 (the British 
Museum reading room having been dosed for about three months in 1907/8). 
The statement here g^ven is probably as accurate and fair a comparison as 
can be expressed by figures, but there are many sides of library activities that 
can not thus be expressed, at least in a condensed table. For instance, this 
record omits all notice of the extensive exchange activities between the Berlin 
Royal Library and other German and European libraries; it fails to note 
the service rendered by the Library of Congress to Washington departments 
and to other libraries throughout the country ; it does not show that admis- 
sion to the reading rooms of the British Museum and Berlin Royal Library is 
limited to card holders; it takes no account of collections of manuscripts, 
maps, sheet music, prints, etc.; and it does not state that each of the four 
libraries probably has a different definition of what is a volume or a periodi- 
cal or what constitutes consultation of a volume or periodical. The New 
York Public Library figures are for the reference department (Astor and 
Lenox branches) alone, except that the figures indicating total volumes 
available and amount of money spent include both reference and circulation 
departments, and the last item is of course for the circulation department 
alone. The British Museum expenditures are from the national general 
budget statement for 1906/7. 

The Bibliotheque nationale at Paris reports for the year 1908, in the 
Salle de travail," 162,084 readers and 552,049 volumes consulted; in the 
Salle de lecture," 37,719 readers and 58,630 volumes consulted; receipts of 
39,306 volumes, 506,260 periodicals. The budget of 1907 gives its total 
allowance as 823,150 fr., of which 449,000 fr. were for salaries, 182,000 fr. 
for purchases of books, etc., and 100,000 fr. for the catalogues.

N«w Building. 

Progress on the new central reference building at Fifth Avenue and 
Forty-second Street has been more satisfactory this year than last. One 
new contract has been let, that for the approaches work. Labor troubles 
between sub-contractors and their workmen have been fewer than usual, and 
what strikes occurred fortunately caused no serious delays. 

The state of the work now in progress is as follows : 

Contract No. 4: Book Stacks, Iron work in main stack room is com- 
pleted, except the lift enclosures. It has received two coats of white paint, 
and when the marble floors, now being laid, are finished it will be given the 
two remaining coats. 

Stack work in all second and third floor rooms is in place ; shop drawings 
are nearly finished for first floor and basement stacks. 

Contract No. 5: Heating and V^entilating. The duct work and steam 
piping are now practically complete, and all steam boilers are in place. The 
heating plant has been in operation since October, 1907. Radiators are in- 
stalled in their permanent positions in rooms where the interior finish is com- 
pleted, elsewhere they have temporary connections. 

Piping and machinery for the vacuum cleaning system are in place. 

Contract No. 6: Plumbing. Rough plumbing is completed. Fixtures 
are installed in nearly all toilet rooms, leaving little more to be done under 
this contract. 

Contract No. 7: Interior Finish, Progress here has been rapid. 

The structural iron work for ceiling support is finished for all third floor 
rooms and for the lending delivery room; roofing is now being put on the 
latter. Stack work is nearly finished except in the art and architectural 
room, where it is about half done. 


The three bronze grilles at the main entrance are erected and glazed; 
windows and frames for about i6o openings have been delivered. 

Furring, lathing, plastering are now practically complete on all floors but 
the basement. In the main stack room the walls are furred, and walls and 
ceilings plastered. 

Marble walls in all corridors are finished. Marble floor borders, base, 
and trim are set in twenty-one third floor rooms, and floors laid in all third 
floor corridors, two second floor corridors, and in the portico, entrance lobby, 
and exhibition room. Floors are now going down in second floor corridors 
and floor borders in second floor rooms. Marble work is complete in all 
toilet rooms. 

Cabinet work, except the doors, is finished in about twenty of the second 
and third floor rooms and material for about as many more is in the building 
awaiting setting. 

Cork floors have been laid in five rooms on the third floor. 

Painting and decorating of the main reading room and public catalogue 
room is well under way. 

Contract No. 8 : Electric Equipment All conduits are in place except in 
part of the first floor and basement. 

Guides and sheaves for book lifts, freight lifts, and passenger elevators 
have been installed. 

The exhausters and part of the tubes for the pneumatic delivery equip- 
ment are in place. 

Contract No. 9: Approaches. This was awarded to Norcross Brothers 
at the meeting of the Board of estimate and apportionment held October g, 
1908, their bid being $523,000. Working drawings and plaster models are 
being prepared in the shops and work is also progressing at the marble 

For the sculptures on the Fifth Avenue front Frederick MacMonniesi 
has been selected to do the two statues for the niches on each side of the 
main entrance, the subjects suggested being "Wisdom" and "Knowledge." 
The groups for the two pediments have been assigned to George Grey Bar- 
nard, the subjects here being "Science" and "Art." The six figures over 
the attic are to represent "History," "Philosophy," "Religion," "Romance," 
"Poetry," "Drama," and are to be done by Paul W. Bartlett. Execution of 
the two lions on the north and south ends of the main entrance steps has 
been given to E. C. Potter. 

Contract No. 10: Electric Power Plant. No change has been made in 
this contract since my last report ; it is still in the hands of the chief engineer 
of the Finance department of the city, being referred to him by the Board of 
estimate and apportionment in 1907. 


Contract No. — : Furniture and Equipment. Preparatory work on this 
contract has taken most of the spare time of the Assistant Director and 
Reference Librarian and of two members of the architects' staif for the last 
three months. At present the preliminary schedules of furniture and equip- 
ment have been worked out for each room and cumulated for each floor. 
The architects are now at work on preparation of the drawings, specifica- 
tions, etc. This contract will include readers' tables, desks, chairs, lighting 
fixtures, and all other objects not included in previous contracts and neces- 
sary for equipment of the building. 

Readers' Department. 

During the calendar year 1908 the number of readers and visitors enter- 
ing the two reference branches was 289,546, of which 232,246 were recorded 
at AsTOR and 57,300 at Lenox. The daily average was 747 at Astor and 
184 at Lenox. In 1907 the figures were 183,166 at Astor and 52445 at 
Lenox, a total of 235,611, a daily average of 590 at Astor and 169 at Lenox. 

The number of desk applicants during the period was 212,701, of which 
197,385 were recorded at Astor and 15,316 at Lenox. This is an increase 
of 12,875 (Astor 11,391, Lenox 1,484) over 1907, or 6 per cent. The 
daily average was 684 desk applicants (634 at Astor, 50 at Lenox). 

The number of volumes consulted by these 212,701 desk applicants was 
905>030> of which 819,151 were called for at Astor and 85,879 at Lenox. 
The daily average was 2,910 volumes (2,634 at Astor, 276 at Lenox). 

The above figures take no account of the volumes consulted by readers 
using the open reference shelves; these readers number about 5,000 per 
month at Astor and 1,000 at Lenox, and the count of volumes thus con- 
sulted would probably be at the rate of five or more per reader if making 
such a count were practicable. 

The increase of 12,875 ^^sk applicants (6 per cent.) represents a gain of 
7,223 at Astor during the day (9 a. m. to 6 p. m.) or 4 per cent. ; a gain of 
4,168 at Astor during the evening (6 to 9 p. m.) or 16 per cent.; a total 
gain at Astor of 11,391, or 6 per cent.; a gain of 1,484 at Lenox (9 a. m. 
to 6 p. m.) or 10 per cent. 

The totals, monthly and daily averages, and average number of volumes 
called for per reader are shown in the following table :

history, 35,967 or 4.39 per cent, to Literature other than English or Ameri- 
can, 33,511, or 4.09 per cent, to Science, etc.

cent, belonged to the group of American genealogies and local histories, 
9,889, or 1. 1 5 per cent, to American history, 4,983 or 4.5 per cent, to music, 
3>707» or 4-4 pcr cent, to English and American literature. 

Of the total number of desk applicants, Astor day service amounted to 
79 per cent., Astor evening service to 14 per cent., Lenox to 7 per cent. 
(In 1907 Astor day service amounted to 79 per cent., evening service to 12 
per cent., Lenox to 8 per cent.) 

Of the total number of desk applicants at Astor the day represented 85 
per cent., and the evening service 15 per cent. 

Of the total number of volumes consulted, Astor day service amounted to 
79.6 per cent., Astor evening service to 10.5 per cent., Lenox to 9.5 per cent. 


Of the total number of volumes consulted at Astor the day service repre- 
sented 88 per cent, and the evening service 12 per cent. 

At Lenox the largest number of readers and visitors recorded in any on^ 
month was 6,496 in March; the smallest in any one month was 3,301 in July; 
the largest in any one day was 488 on February 22 ; and the smallest was 70 
on May 7. 

The largest number of desk applicants in any one month at Lenox was 
1,644 ^^ April, when 8,569 voltunes were consulted; in March 1,554 desk 
applicants consulted 10,153 volumes; the smallest in any one month was 
1,018 in July, 5,762 volumes being called for; in August 1,022 desk applicants

Table I appended records the number and classes of volumes consulted at 
Astor and Lenox, the number of readers, visitors, etc., for the calendar year 

Shelf Department. 

The nimiber of volumes received at the library during 1908 was 29,377, of 
which 17,528 were purchases, 10,899 gifts, and 950 exchanges. 

The number of pamphlets received during the same period was 65,679, 
of which 8,145 were purchases, 30,110 gifts and 27,424 exchanges. 

The number of volumes accessioned during the calendar year 1908 was 
34,024, of pamphlets 9,870. Of this number 18,029 volumes and 1,593 
pamphlets were purchased or were received on exchange account, 15,995 
volumes and 8,277 pamphlets were gifts. 

The total number of volumes recorded as available for readers on Decem- 
ber 31, 1908, was 758,918, and of pamphlets 283,075, a total of 1,041,993 
pieces in the Reference Department. (From this figure should be deducted 
temporarily the 83,651 volumes and pamphlets stored away in boxes.) 


Reclassification during the year 1908 amounted to 1,203 volumes and 148 
pampHets. In this work the largest single group was that of African 
languages. The only large group now unclassified is. that of Law, shelved at 
Lenox and numbering about 15,000 volumes. 

The time of one man for the last nine months has been given to the prepa- 
ration of a subject index to our scheme of classification. This work has now 
progressed so far as the letter G ; when it is finished it will serve in a way as 
an index to our subject headings in the index catalogue as well as to the 
groups and classes included in our scheme of classification. 

During 1908 outside binders bound 6,148 volumes and pamphlets; of this 
number 4,358 pieces were newly bound and 1,790 were repaired. This 
record does not include about 1,200 volumes bound abroad before importation. 

At the AsTOR branch 913 volumes and pamphlets were rebound or re- 
paired in the bindery in the building, and 1,520 volumes and pamphlets need- 
ing slight patching or repairing were cared for without sending to the bindery. 

The number of volumes done up in manila paper at Astor was 7,988 and 
the number of volumes lettered after being done up in manila paper. was 


Storage of Books. 

At the end of 1907 we had packed away in boxes stored in the Astor 
cellar 69,289 volumes and pamphlets. This had been done for the double 
purpose of providing relief for our overcrowded shelves and providing space 
for Lenox material in case we should have to close that building. During 
1908 we stored away 14,362 volumes and pamphlets, making a total of 83,651 
pieces so treated. 


Receipts on duplicate exchange account during 1908 were 950 volumes 
and 27424 pamphlets ; volumes sent out amounted to 2,400 and pamphlets to 

Catalogue Department. 

During the calendar year 1908 the number of volumes newly catalogued 
was 22,074 and of pamphlets 18,789 ; in addition 23,779 volumes of serials, 
journals, etc., were catalogued and 23,071 pamphlets. Individual works re- 
catalogued during the year amounted to 840 volumes and 296 pamphlets; 
of serials 2,590 volumes and 1,652 pamphlets were recatalogued. 

The total number of volumes handled by the department was thus 49,283 
and of pamphlets 43,808, making an aggregate of 93,091 pieces. 

Entries for 289 maps were written for the map catalogue. 


For the pieces mentioned above were written 60,775 white cards for the 
various catalogues and 36,644 slips for the copying machine. These latter 
were multiplied to 164,745 of which about 136,745 were filed and about 
28,000 were forwarded to the Library of Congress. 

In addition entries were changed on 25,820 cards representing works 
already in the library, for which continuations or additions were received 
during the year. 

At the Lenox branch little cataloguing was done besides keeping abreast 
of the current accessions. The uncatalogued material here amounts to a few 
hundred miscellaneous pieces and the Bunyan and Bible collections ; for both 
these last-named collections we have printed catalogues or check lists. 

The public index catalogue at Astor contains 1,119,166 cards. The 
official author catalogues contain 925,070 cards (general catalogue 551,400, 
serials 84,500, railways 5,915, documents 140,173, reports 30,800, Hebrew 
56,000, Oriental 33,870, Russian 22,412). 

For material stored away in boxes 30,000 cards have been withdrawn 
from the public catalogue at Astor. 

The public catalogues at Lenox contain 377,920 cards (south hall 248,- 
160, genealogies and local history 54,880, music 74,880). The official author 
catalogues contain 137,813 cards (incunabula 3,400, Americana 42,760, manu- 
scripts 28,120, maps 25,360, prints 38,173). 

The two public catalogues thus contain 1,497,086 cards, the official author 
catalogues in the two buildings contain 1,062,883 cards. 

1,766 current periodicals are indexed (1,682 at Astor, 84 at Lenox) ; in 
addition 30 periodicals are indexed for the American Library Association 
co-operative work. 12,577 subject cards were written for the public cata- 
logues and 998 printer's slips for the A. L. A. co-operative work. 

From the publishing section of the A. L. A. we received 5,964 printed 
cards representing the indexing of 218 periodicals done jointly by this library 
and Boston Public Library, John Crerar Library, and Harvard and Columbia 
university libraries. From the Library of Congress we received 265 printed 
cards as continuation of indexing formerly done by the A. L. A. and now 
done by the Library of Congress. 

Periodicals Department. 

For the calendar year 1908 the number of readers filling out application 
blanks for current periodicals at Astor was 44,506, of periodicals consulted 
by them 291,891 ; this was an increase of 9,329 readers and of 43,069 

The daily average was 143 readers (114 day, 28 evening) and 938 


periodicals (765 day, 172 evening) ; last year the average number of readers 
was 113 and of periodicals consulted 802. 

The number of individual titles of current periodicals called for during 
1908 was 76,045 (61,392 day, 14,653 evening), as compared with 60,516 
during 1907 (48,116 day, 12,400 evening), this count disregarding the num- 
ber of individual issues called for or given out. 

The distribution of these 76,045 titles called for in 1908 is as follows: 

General, 11,484; American history, 1,098; foreign history, 815; geo- 
graphy, 211 ; art, archaeology, architecture, etc., 8,765 ; English and American 
literature, 8,991 ; foreign literature, 4,272; science, 2457; useful arts, 21,756; 
law, economics, sociology, education, etc., 10,963; religion and philosophy, 
2,567 ; orientalia, 89 ; Judaica, 95 ; newspapers, 2,400 ; natural history, 82. 

The Library receives at this date 6,457 current periodicals, of which 3,937 
are purchases, 2,252 are gifts, and 268 exchanges for the Bulletin. 133 of 
this total are daily papers, 887 weeklies, 209 semi-monthlies, 1,866 monthlies, 
213 bi-monthlies, 735 quarterlies, 89 semi-annuals, 729 annuals received by 
purchase, 1,383 of irregular periods of publication. 

These 6,457 current periodicals represent a gross increase of 376 new 
titles, less a loss of 301 titles discontinued for various reasons, making a net 
increase of 75 over the 6,382 reported in 1907. 

In further addition should be noted 9,531 annual publications received by 
gift, and 430 in exchange for the Bulletin. 

The average of separate numbers of periodicals (excluding all annuals) 
received daily is 528, amounting to 163,604 in the course of the year. 

In exchange for the Bulletin the Library received a total of 698 periodi- 
cals, 285 of these are American annual publications, 145 are foreign annuals, 
and 268 American and foreign periodicals of greater frequency of publication 
than annual. 

331 volumes of old periodicals were added during the year, completing 
important files. 

Table II appended gives in detail a record of our current periodicals. 

Documents Department. 

During 1908 the documents department received 9,726 volumes, 4,732 
pamphlets, and 489 maps. It catalogued 10,109 volumes, 8,348 pamphlets 
and 37 maps. For this cataloguing 6,113 cards were written and 6,646 slips 
for the copying machine, these latter being multiplied on the machine to 
21,806 cards. 

Oriental Department. 

The catalogue of the department now contains 33,870 cards. For current 
catalogue work were written 4,992 cards and additions were made to 524 


cards already written. Accessions amounted to 806 pieces, giving a total of 
11,506 pieces in the department. 

Some of the more important additions are a large collection of Arabic 
books on law, history and philosophy purchased directly from Cairo; the 
'*Futawa alemgiri; a collection of opinions and precepts of Muhammedan 
law," compiled by Sheikh Nizam and others, Calcutta, 1828-1835, in 6 vol- 
umes, quarto; "Kusejr Amra," the report of excavations and explorations 
in Arabia Petraea by Alois Musil and others, published by the Kaiserliche 
Akademie der Wissenschaften (Wien, 1907), in 2 volumes, folio; Musil's 
elaborate account of his explorations and expeditions in the last ten or a 
dozen years, entitled "Arabia Petraea," and published by the K. Akademie in 
3 parts (Wien, 1907-1908), in quarto; and an Armenian periodical, the 
"Banaser," volumes 1-8, Paris, 1899-1906. 

Three Arabic daily newspapers published in Cairo, "al-Garidah," "al- 
Moayad" and "Cairo Punch" are now received regularly. 

A list of works in the Library relating to Arabic poetry was published in 
the January Bulletin and lists on the Arabs and on Muhammad and Muham- 
madanism have been prepared. 

Hebrew Department. 

The number of volumes and pamphlets credited to the department is 
now about 16,000. Readers number about 50 per day and call for about 125 
volimies. The special catalogue of the collection contains about 56,000 cards. 

Slavonic Department. 

For the year 1908 additions to the Slavonic department amounted to 950 
volumes and 290 pamphlets, bringing the total record in the department to 
10,987 pieces. 

Volumes catalogued amounted to 652, pamphlets to 288 ; articles indexed 
to 476. For this work were written 4,258 white cards, and 644 slips for the 
copying machine ; additions were made to the entries on 360 cards already 

The number of cards in the catalogue on December 31, 1908, was 22,412. 

The number of readers recorded was 25438 by day and 5,535 at night 
making a total of 30,973 (against 21,376 in 1907). The average per month 
was 2,581 (against 1,781 in 1907) 2,119 day and 461 night readers. 

These 30,973 readers called for 45498 volumes. 

The most important of our additions in Russian literature were the works 
of Chirikov, Kuprin, Nemirovich-Danchenko, Stanyukovich, Druzhinin, 
Albov, Minski, latest works of Gorki, Andreyev, Amfiteatrov, Doroshevich, 


Dai's dictionary (new edition), Kornblit's German-Russian technical diction- 
ary, and works on the Revolutionary movement and on literature. 

For the Polish section the important accessions were 105 new dramas 
bound in 25 volumes ; the works of Moyers, Orkan, Rykaczewski's diction- 
ary, Linde's dictionary, J. A. Swiecicki's works on Oriental and Jewish 

In Bohemian literature the most important addition consisted of current 
issues of the monthly magazine "Slovan" and of 200 recent dramas; in 
Bulgarian, the weekly "Makedoniya" and the semi-weekly "Naroden Glas" ; 
in Servo-Croatian, Filipovic's German-Croatian and Croatian-German 

Print Department. 

During 1908 accessions amounted to 2,462 pieces. The total number of 
prints thus recorded is now 68,285 (49,592 in the general collection, 18,693 
in the Avery collection). In addition, there are also 105,180 pieces in shape 
of duplicates, cuttings from magazines, etc., uncatalogued and unaccessioned 
but arranged by subjects for consultation. 

The print room was visited by 1,790 persons for consultation of prints. 
82 volumes and 51 prints were sent to the general reading room for the use 
of readers. 

The catalogue of the department contains 38,173 cards. 

The most important accessions were the lithographs given by Joseph 
Pennell and the Daumier prints given by Mrs. CyruS J. Lawrence. These 
and the material given by Ozias Dodge, Richard H. Lawrence, Harry C. 
Dickins, Th. Molkenboer, Warren Sheppard, and Knoedler & Co., are noted 
in detail below among the other gifts. 

Among the books newly received the lives of St. Gaudens, Rembrandt, 
Romney, Michael Angelo, Carpaccio, Scopas, Whistler, Holbein, George 
Baxter may be mentioned as indication of the many movements and person- 
alities covered and tastes met. There is a continuous demand for works on 
various topics connected with applied art, such as material on modern stained 
glass that is not for church purposes, books on shop-window decoration, etc., 
and much of this demand we are able to meet. 


The exhibition of etchings by Jacquemart opened at the Lenox branch 
in November, 1907, was continued until February 14, 1908. It was suc- 
ceeded by a selection of etchings and lithographs by modem Dutch artists 
(Israels, Jongkind, Storm van 'sGravesande, Witsen, Bauer, Veth, Zilcken, 
and others). It showed much diversity of style, and in an interesting 


manner reflected various phases of the spirit animating Dutch art. In the 
middle of May these Dutch prints gave way to a number of French line en- 
gravings chosen from the set of one hundred issued by the Societe Frangaise 
de Gravure, interesting as an attempt to revive the old art of line engraving 
in a modern aspect. In these plates by Gaillard, Bellay, Didier, Danquin, 
and others, there is shown much interesting effort to produce the effect of 
tone and color and to interpret the artistic individuality, the various styles, 
of the painters whose works are reproduced. This exhibition was replaced 
in December by an historical review of painter-lithography. With about 
five or six thousand lithographs (mainly from the Avery, Pennell, and C)rrus 
J. Lawrence collections) to choose from, about 125 were selected. This collec- 
tion offered the concisest possible record of the art and strikingly emphasized 
both the possibilities of lithography as a means of expression for the artist 
and the various methods used by individual artists and by national groups. 
As in nearly every case each artist was represented by but one print, care 
was taken to call attention to the fact that collections — in certain cases, such 
as Daumier, Raffet, Fantin-Latour, and others, exceptionally large collec- 
tions—of the work of individuals could be seen in the Print Room. 

In the lower hall at Lenox the wood engravings by Prunaire, placed on 
exhibition in November, 1907, remained on view until March 7, 1908. 
They were then replaced by etchings produced by Ozias Dodge by a new 
process. This latter is based on the use of a gelatine film with a grained 
surface to receive a drawing which is transferred by contact printing to a 
copper plate coated with a bichromate, and the plate then treated by an 
application of the "wash-out" process and etching. The artist described 
the process fully in a pamphlet he had printed for distribution to those 
interested. From May i to June 16, plates from W. Bode's work on the 
Kann collection were on view. These were succeeded by a selection of 
prints from the Colonna collection of Japanese albums. The entire collec- 
tion, comprising 208 albums and including rare series such as Harunobu's 
marriage set, Shigemasa and Shunsho's Celebrated beauties, Kiyonaga's 
"Mitsuma Asa," Korin's "Guashiki," Hokusai's "Shashin," and Mamaro's 
insect, bird, and shell books, has been placed by the owner, Mr. E. Colonna, 
as a loan in the print room for the use of the public. During July and 
August, lithographs by Joseph Pennell were shown. Besides illustrating 
the art of Mr. Pennell, these served also to call attention to the large collec- 
tion of lithographs, particularly by French and English artists, presented to 
the Library by Mr. Pennell. The next exhibition, August 20-October 17, 
was one of Danish etchings loaned by Mr. Axel Hellrung. It offered an 
unusual opportunity to study work by artists of a nation of whose art not 
much is seen in this country. The Colonna prints were again displayed on 


October 17-November 15. In memory of the three hundredth anniversary 
of the birth of Milton an exhibition of printed books, manuscripts, portraits, 
etc., relating to the poet and owned by the Library was given on November 
16; the selection of printed books comprised first editions of all his works, 
several volumes from his library and bearing his signattu'e or manuscript 
annotations, as well as a representative selection of old and new books about 
him ; the portraits numbered over one hundred and fifty. 

The exhibit of methods and processes of engraving furnished by the 
Century Company remained on view throughout the year, a selection of 
albums from the Charles Stewart Smith collection of Japanese prints until 
June 16, a selection of Japanese prints from the Colonna collection, June 16- 
December 31 ; the four Doolittle prints of the Battles of Concord and Lexing- 
ton, July-December, as well as the manuscript of Washington's farewell 
address, a selection of Shakespeare folios and quartos, the Gutenberg Bible 
and other material of like interest. 

At the AsTOR branch the exhibitions in the wing frames were as follows : 
American etchings, engravings, and lithographs, January-February 16; 
plates from "Das Schaufenster" relating to shop-window decoration, 
January-March; a selection of modem German etchings and lithographs, 
February- April ; plates from "Ausgefiihrte Bauomamente von Prager Bild- 
hauem" (Wien: Anton SchroU & Co., 1908), April- June; plates from 
"Broderies des paysannes de Smolensk executees sous la direction de la prin- 
cesse Tenichey," May- July; reproductions of paintings by J. L. Gerome, 
June- July; etchings and lithographs by modem Dutch artists, July- August; 
plates from Schaefer and Rossteucher's "Omamentale Glasmalereien des 
Mittelalters fur die Praxis," August-October ; from Hirth's "Formenschatz," 
September-December, and from "Der Decor," November-December; and in 
December were put on view some eighty bookplates engraved by the late 
J. Wilfred Spenceley. 

The Bulletin 

Volume 12 of the Bulletin for 1908 contained 740 pages, an increase of 
108 over the preceding volume. 

Besides the usual monthly reports the Bulletin contained the following 
administrative documents : The report of the Director for 1907 in Febru- 
ary ; Mr. Bigelow's letter presenting his pastel portrait of Duplessis in June ; 
resolutions of the Board of Trustees in memory of Bishop Potter and Ed- 
ward King in November and December respectively; and in December the 
resolutions of the Board protesting against the proposed duty on books for 
libraries suggested at the recent tariff hearings in Washington. 

Selections from letters to James Monroe, 1812-1816, were printed in the 


September number, and in October we reprinted an interesting broadside 
proposal for a public library in Albany, the original broadside having been 
printed in New York by Hugh Gaine, about 1758, evidently an attempt to 
start in Albany a library similar to the one then newly formed in this city 
and now known as the "Society Library/* 

Purchases and Gifts. 

Our purchases for the reference department have been somewhat more 
varied than usual. We have kept up the practice of spending about one- 
half the book money for subscriptions to current periodicals. Justification of 
this practice is indicated by the observation that of the 819,151 volumes called 
for at the Astor branch 291,891 were volumes of current periodicals; if to 
this 37 per cent, were added the figures for bound volumes delivered to 
readers at the general delivery desk the proportion would undoubtedly rise 
to over 50 per cent. So far as individual books are concerned, American 
history, the economic and social sciences, and useful arts have received their 
usual attention. Through the gift of Mr. Jacob H. SchifF we have added 
to our Arabic, Hebrew, and other Semitic collections in ways that assure 
the gratitude of students. Our collection of contemporary drama has been 
increased by some 500 Portuguese plays, 2,500 Spanish, and several hundred 
each of Italian, Bohemian, Hungarian, Flemish, Dutch, and Swedish. At 
the Crispi sale in Rome we bought a number of Italian statistical documents. 
Italian municipal ordinances of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, a 
file of the Nederlandsche Staatscourant, covering the years 1813-1847, 1862- 
1880, and of the Parliamentary papers of Saxony, 1845-185 1, are important 
additions to our collections of public documents. From Spain we bought 
several thousand volumes, mainly of documentary, historical, or statistical 
interest, relating to Spain, the Philippines, and South America. During the 
summer we secured some 1,200 volumes relating to the history and literature 
of Cuba. 

From the private library of Mr. Wilberforce Eames we bought aboul 
1,400 volumes relating to China, 342 to Africa, and 234 to Oceanica; Mr. 
Eames' gift of books relating to African linguistics is noted below. 

For many of the works referred to above and for practically all our pur- 
chases of the expensive works on art and applied art we are indebted to the 
special fund of several thousand dollars subscribed by a few friends of the 
Library ; without the aid of this fund our allowance for books would permit 
us to do little more than keep abreast of the demands upon us for new books 
in the general departments of literature and art. 

In the record of gifts during 1908 come many names that have appeared 
here from year to year. The President of the Board of Trustees, Mr. 


Cadwalader, Mr. Dodge, Mr. Morgan, Mr. Kennedy, Mr. Rives, and Mr. 
Sheldon have remembered us from time to time. Mr. Bigelow's gift of his 
pastel portrait of Franklin by Duplessis was noted in the Bulletin for 
June, accompanied by the text of his letter of transmittal. Mr. Cadwalader 
gave an interesting set of photographs and autograph signatures of the 
original twenty-one trustees of the Library, mounted on a single board, and 
framed. From Mr. Morgan we have received his privately printed cata- 
logues of special collections in his library, such as the printed books and 
manuscripts in the Ashbumham-Morris collection, the catalogue of minia- 
tures, etc., all of which have been elaborately illustrated by facsimiles. 

Mrs. Henry Draper has given much material of interest and value this 
year as heretofore; besides her gift of over one hundred volumes to the 
Courtlandt Palmer memorial collection, mainly art works and similar ex- 
pensive material, she has given nearly two hundred volumes of a miscel- 
laneous nature. 

Mr. Wilberforce Fames gave us nearly 300 volumes in African languages, 
an important addition to our already large collection on this subject. By 
bequest from the late Miss Matilda Bruce we received her library of printed 
books, over 1,000 volumes in number. F^-om Rufus E. Moore came the 
beautiful illuminated vellum manuscript done by him in 1873 ^^^ the city of 
Chicago as a memorial of gratitude to Alexander T. Stewart for his gift of 
$50,000 for the relief fund after the fire of 1871. 

The print room has been fortunate both in quality and quantity of gifts 
received during 1908. Joseph Pennell gave 1,006 lithographs covering work 
from Senef elder's day to the present; this collection formed the backbone 
of the centenary exhibition of the South Kensington Museum and it served 
also as the basis of descriptions and illustrations in the Pennells' "Litho- 
graphy and Lithographers." From Mrs. Cyrus J. Lawrence came some six 
hundred prints, mainly lithographs by Daumier; and Richard H. Lawrence 
gave over one hundred photographs of pieces in the American collection of 
Godefroy Meyer. Ozias Dodge gave thirty-three prints done by himself in 
his newly devised method of etching. From Harry C. Dickins came six 
mezzotints in color by F. G. Stevenson ; from M. Knoedler & Co. over 150 
pieces representative of the best in modern French reproductive etching; 
from Th. Molkenboer some sixty lithographs by himself and photographs of 
his drawings; and from Warren Sheppard an interesting collection of his 
pencil sketches of steam and sailing vessels. 

Mr. William K. Bixby has continued to send his privately printed vol- 
umes, those received this year being the facsimile of Eugene Field's "My 
Book" presented by the poet to William C. Buskett, the Dickens-Maria 
Beadnell letters, and Zachary Taylor's letters from the battle fields of the 


Mexican war. Doctor S. T. Armstrong, Mrs. Cadwalader Jones, Mr. and 
Mrs. Eliot Norton, Mrs. L. G. Meyer, Doctor A. Nardecchia, Hon. Elihu 
Root, Professor Leo S. Rowe, and Mrs. Howard Townsend have also sent 
in much of value as in other years. 

Through the efforts of Mr. Richard Helbig of the Lenox branch the 
German-American collection shelved there has received 544 volumes and 
pamphlets from 97 individuals. Rev. John Rothensteiner, of St. Louis, and 
Hon. Christian Roth, of Dayton, Ohio, were the two largest donors. Over 
fifty German-American newspapers and twelve periodicals are currently 
given to the collection. 

From the Century Association, the Harvard Club, the Churchman, Chris- 
tian Herald, Literary Digest, Engineering and Mining Journal, Publishers', 
Weekly, Railroad Age Gazette, Scientific American, and the Western Electric 
Company we have also received continuations of their former gifts of cur- 
rent periodicals. 


New Buildings. 

Seven years and a half have passed since the execution of the contract 
with the city relative to the gift of Mr. Carnegie, and during that time the 
city has acquired twenty-three sites in the Borough of Manhattan, five sites 
in The Bronx, and four sites in Richmond, making a total of thirty-two sites. 

Table III hereto appended shows the present condition of the work, 
details of acquisition, etc. In addition, the city has approved of seven 
general localities in which additional sites are to be procured, five of which 
are in Manhattan, one in The Bronx, and one in Richmond. In four of 
these general localities definite sites are now under negotiation for purchase. 

At this date building operations are under way on the three following 
buildings : 

Site No. 24. 192-194 East Broadway. 

No. 30. 388-392 East Houston Street. 
No. 31. 742-744 Tenth Avenue. 

On site No. 37, No. 9-1 1 West 124th Street, the building is finished; 
it will be occupied by the Harlem Library branch early in January, 1909. 

Floor plans and front elevations of the following new buildings accom- 
pany this report : 


No. 15. 228 East 23d Street. (Epiphany) 

No. 29. 303 East 36th Street. (St. Gabriel's Pakk) 

No. 33. 610 East 169th Street. (Morrisania) 

The department now includes thirty-nine branches, of which thirty are 
in the Borough of Manhattan, five in The Bronx, and four in Richmond. 

Of these, thirty-five occupy their own buildings (twenty-eight erected 
from the Carnegie fund, including all those in the boroughs of The Bronx 
and Richmond) ; two. East Broadway and St. Raphael^ are in rented 
quarters ; two have quarters rent free. 

Besides these thirty-nine two distributing agencies, the Travelling Library 
department and the Library for the Blind, which have the organization of 
separate branches and in some ways are counted as such, occupy temporary 
quarters in the Riverside and St. Agnes branches respectively. 

Better artificial lighting for the branches has received much attention this 
year, being the subject of special study by Mr. L. B. Marks, illuminating 
engineer, and by various members of the Library staff. The result as seen 
at St. Gabriel's Park^ 115TH Street, and Morrisania branches is a decided 
improvement both in general and local illumination. In several of the older 
branches a revision of the lighting arrangements is in progress. 

Four Carnegie buildings have been opened, two in Manhattan and two in 
The Bronx. 

In the former borough, the St. Gabriel's Park building is occupied by 
the former Thirty-fourth Street branch, and the 115TH Street branch 
is newly organized. In the Borough of The Bronx, both the new buildings 
(High Bridge and Morrisania) are occupied by new branch organizations. 
The usual preliminary work was begun in all cases several months • before 
opening, and the work of the Thirty-fourth Street branch was discon- 
tinued on April 25, the books being moved on April 27 to the new building 
on St. Gabriel's Park, where circulation was resumed gradually after the 
preparation and shelving of large additions to the stock. By June 23 the 
library was in complete operation except for the open-air reading room, 
which did not open until July i. In this case no formal opening exercises 
were held, but in the others there was a public gathering at which the build- 
ing was turned over to the city by a representative of the Trustees, accepted 
by an official designated for the purpose by the Mayor, and then re-delivered 
to the Library for administration. These representatives were as follows: 


High Bridge (July 22, 1908) Dr. Arthur E. Bostwick. Hon. Reginald S. Doull. 

II5TH Street (Nov. 6, 1908) Hon. Oorge L. Rives. Hon. Reginald S. DoulL 

Morrisania (Dec. i, 1908) Hon. Henry W. Taft. Hon. Arthur Woods. 


In addition addresses were made by residents of the neighborhood, in- 
cluding Principal Wight of the Wadleigh High School, at 115TH Street, 
and James L. Wells, Esq., at Morrisania. Music was furnished at High 
Bridge by Miss Mabel Ballou; at 115TH Street by Mme. Lutie Humbert, 
Miss Henrietta Wakefield and Mr. David McKinley Williams ; and at Mor- 
risania by the orchestra of the Morris High School, under the direction of 
Mr. C. P. Tracy. 


The circulation for the year 1908 is 6,504,402, an increase of 1,014,158 
over the calendar year 1907. Of this, 80,026 is the circulation, of three 
branches established during 1908, and the remainder, 934,132, is the net 
increase of annual circulation at thirty-eight branches, including the Travel- 
ling Library Office, which alone is responsible for 142,116. 

Tables IV- VII appended give statistics of the circulation for home 
use by months and by classes. In the table (No. VI) of percentages of 
home use, the books in foreign languages have been distributed among the 
classes. In the corresponding table of the last report the circulation of 
books in languages not English was given separately (5 per cent.). This has 
led to an apparent raising of fiction ratio from 58 to 60 per cent. English 
translations of foreign texts are counted as English books and foreign trans- 
lations of English books are counted as foreign. 

The number of persons entitled to draw books (Table XIV) is stated 
somewhat differently from heretofore. The registration books bear the 
names of many persons who have not made use of the library for consider- 
able periods. Re-registration, which is in progress in many of the older 
branches, removes a large number of these names, but in all cases, a special 
computation- has been made of persons actually taking books for home use 
during the calendar year 1908, and the results of this are given in the last 
column of Table XIV, instead of the whole number of names on the regis- 
tration books, as formerly. 

The new rule granting permission to withdraw eight books at a time, for 
vacation use outside the city during the summer months, has proved very 
popular, and the increased circulation over 1908 is satisfactory. The dis- 
tribution of this vacation reading by branches and classes is shown in Table 
VII. The percentage of fiction used is larger than the average, but it is not 
as great as might have been expected. 

Sunday and Evening Opening. 

No changes were made during the year in the branch reading-rooms 
selected for Sunday opening (2 to 6 p.m.) as a result of the experimental 


openings described in the last report. The attendance at the branches so 
opened was as follows : 


RiviNGTON Street 52 10,606 10,334 11,291 

Ottendorfer 52 3,339 2,89s 3»493

• ^ 

24,681 24,616 26,400 

To the RiviNGiON Street branch, which, until December 31, 1907, was 
the only one open for reading purposes after 9 p. m.^ the Tompkins Square 
branch was added on January 4, 1903, and the attendance there has war- 
ranted the addition. In both cases the hour of closing was ten p. m. The 
attendance is shown in the following table : 



RiviNGTON Street 24,926 8,865 33»79i 

Tompkins Square 6,716 1,371 8,c*7 

31,642 10,236 41,878 


The staff of the department now (December 31, 1908) includes 473 
persons (counting 25 vacant positions temporarily filled by persons on trial 
or by substitutes), classified as follows: 

General Staff: 

Administration 14

This represents an increase of 57 over the number reported in 1907. The 
increase is accounted for as follows : for new branches, 46 ; for old branches 
moving into new buildings, 8 ; added to 67TH Street, Aguilar, Tottenville 
I each. 

Of the vacancies now existing 2 are in Class B, 14 in Qass C, 3 in Class 
D, 3 reading-room custodians and 3 messengers. 

The number of separate appointments made during 1908 was 112; 47 
transfers were effected ; 42 members of the staff resigned ; indefinite leave 
of absence was granted to 26, and there were two deaths. 

During the year 1908 there were employed substitutes and extra assist- 
ants approximately 1,500 times in the several branches and in the general 
offices for periods varying from a few hours to the full month. Many of 
these temporary appointments were made necessary by the work incident to 
the opening of new branches, the removal of established branches into new 
and larger buildings, and in the reorganization of other branches. The 
greater part, however, of these assignments was necessitated by one or more 
of the following reasons: (a) as vacation substitutes, (b) to replace regular 
assistants on leave of absence without pay, (c) to fill vacancies caused by 
resignations and indefinite leaves of absence, (d) to meet deficiencies in the 
staff caused by illness or temporary leaves (one week or less), (e) to supple- 
ment the regular forces at many branches owing to the continued increase in 
the circulation of books, and (f) for holidays, Sundays, and extra evening 
service in many instances. In a large number of cases these substitutes were, 
in fact, persons on trial who afterward received permanent appointments.

Of those who failed to secure a mark of 75% but passed in English, 7 
qualified in a final average of examination, work and personal qualities. 

Staff News. 

The "Staff News" as a medium for conveying to the several branches 
official notices, changes in rules, and information of general interest has been 
continued, the issue for the year containing eighty-five mimeographed pages, 
averaging each about 10 x 7 inches of typewritten matter. 

Instruction Office. 

During the year one training class, pursuing the regular nine-months' 
course, completed the term on July i, and another was enrolled on October i. 
Of thirty students entering the final examinations in May, twenty-four be- 
came eligible to Class D and six of these also passed the examinations for C. 
Of the twenty-four, however, only nineteen received certificates, the re- 
mainder failing to qualify in other respects. 

Of 100 applicants for the Class of 1909, sixty-four took the entrance 
examination, which included for the first time a personal interview as well 
as a written test. Of these thirty-two were admitted, and the class now 
ntmibers twenty-seven. A pamphlet circular of information printed early 
in the year g^ves fuller details about the requirements and course of study 
than have heretofore been available. The course there outlined is followed 
with practically little change. 


One feature of class work, experimental for the last two years, has 
proved so successful that it has been continued as a permanent element. The 
class organizes about November i, chooses a president and secretary, and 
conducts a meeting during one hour a week, at which topics of general inter- 
est are presented in five-minute papers and are discussed. The programmes 
are in charge of a committee of the class appointed by the president for each 
month. • 

The librarians of branches selected for the training of students have been 
invited to meet the Instructor for general consultation over details and have, 
in most cases, shown gratifying interest in the problems of instruction and 

In addition to the usual lectures from members of the staff and outside 
librarians. Miss Moore gave the last class four lectures on children's work, 
including children's reading, and Miss Van Pelt gave the present class four 
two-hour lessons in mending books. Miss Murray has also addressed the 
class on bookbinding. 

During the year 628 copies of a one-page circular of information, in some, 
but not all, cases accompanied by an application blank, have been supplied to 
applicants for the class ; 347 of these were given in personal interviews ; and 
126 since October ist. Eight applications have already been filed for the 
class beginning October, 1909. Besides the above, 388 copies of the pamphlet 
of information have been furnished to applicants and others asking further 
information, 588 letters have gone out from the department, and 261 visitors 
other than applicants have called at the oflice. 

105 volumes and 478 pamphlets or leaflets have been added to the techni- 
cal collection of books in the class room, making a total of 1,520 volumes and 
pamphlets, of which 418 are accessioned. Circulation from this collection 
for the year has been 301, so far as recorded. 

The Thursday morning lectures to branch assistants were resumed this 
year in February and covered the following subjects : alphabetical arrange- 
ment, technical library literature, statistics, cataloguing, schedule making, 
administrative problems, and recent reference books. 

In the autumn two lines of study for Thursday mornings were announced 
and sessions have been held weekly since November i. One is in library 
economy and covers the usual ground, for the benefit of those who have had 
no training or wish advanced study. The other is a course in general read- 
ing for individual culture. 

Cataloguing Work. 

The cataloguing in the circulation department has been carried on as 
usual, partly at headquarters, where the general planning is attended to, and 


partly at the individual branches, where the execution of details is effected. 
The work done by the department is indicated in the following table : 

4,605 books classified. 
20,333 cards written for union catalogue. 

1,104 cards written for duplicate union catalogue. 
62,657 books entered in union catalogue and shelf list. 
81,053 cards and slips filed. 
13,930 entries discarded from union catalogue and shelf list. 

6,884 Library of Congress cards placed in union catalogue. 

2,395 Library of Congress cards placed in duplicate union catalc^e. 
89,285 Library of Congress cards sent to branches.

Preparation of copy and the proof-reading for the "Monthly List of Addi- 
tions" to the Department was done also by the cataloguing force. In addi- 


tion to the usual classified lists of new books the following lists on special 
topics were also printed : "Music added to the Library for the Blind since 
May, 1906" (January) ; "Recently added books for children" (February) ; 
"Books for mothers' clubs" (March) ; "Current pedagogical periodicals in 
the circulating department" (April) ; "List of books added to the Library for 
the Blind since September, 1907" (May); "Fruit culture" (June); "The 
church and social problems" (July) ; "Books for the Blind added since May" 
(September) ; "Aerial navigation" (October) ; "As others see us — ^books 
about America, by foreigners" (November) ; "Milton" (December). 

Interbranch Loans. 

The number of books sent from branches on request of readers in other 
parts of the city continues to increase. The work done in 1908, compared 
with that of the previous year, is as follows : 

1908 £907 

Requests 46,075 33,888 

Books received 32,696 23,197 

Calls by messenger 137,031 9^,579 

Of the books asked for, 4,965 were not in the library, and such of these 
as are suitable for our purposes have since been purchased. Of the other 
books asked for but not furnished, 5,653 were at the bindery, worn-out, or 
too popular to lend. 

The percentage of books furnished, to those asked for, has risen slightly, 
being 68 in 1907 and 71 in 1908. 

For the first time during an entire year a record has been kept by classes, 
showing the kinds of books requested through the interbranch loan system. 
This is shown in the following table :

During the year the assistant in charge of the work has written 9,124 
notes of explanation and has filed 67,419 cards. The operation of the loan 
system has been under the direction of the chief cataloguer. The books have 
been taken to the branch where they were needed by our regular express 
messengers, and, where possible, the service at each branch has been placed 
continuously in the charge of the same assistant. 

The use of the union catalogue by the public has increased and it has 
been found necessary to place a special assistant in charge of it in the 
evenings and on holidays, when the cataloguing room has previously been 
closed. Since June record has been kept of the use of this catalogue, which 
is as follows:

School Work. 

In the work with schools, under the immediate supervision of Mr. Edwin 
White Gaillard, eighteen educational institutions have been added to the 


visiting lists of the branches, making a total of 411. Bulletin boards have 
been erected in the schools of the Children's Aid Society, in parochial schools, 
in the Hebrew Technical Institute for Girls, in some corporate schools, and 
in recently completed public elementary and high schools, to the number of 
thirty-two, making a total of 254 in schools, colleges, and universities. On 
these over 7,000 library notices have been posted. To those public schools 
too far from any branch for regular visits, in Staten Island and The Bronx, 
817 notices have been sent by mail, consisting of lists of new books of interest 
to teachers and the announcement of various library privileges for teachers 

and pupils. 

The practice of sending the "Monthly List of Additions" to teachers has 
been continued. In this way, 92,255 copies have been distributed by hand, 
and 367 copies by mail. 

Members of the staff have paid 4,173 visits to schools. These visits have 
been of many kinds, some simply to post notices on bulletin boards, some to 
consult teachers and principals ; some were visits of inspection that the staff 
might better understand conditions, and some were to meet teachers at their 
school conferences. Upon such occasions members of the staff have de- 
livered eighty-six addresses, usually at teachers' conferences, on the privi- 
leges offered to teachers by the Library, to individual classes in elementary 
school rooms, and to high and normal schools at morning assemblies. 
Teachers in the public schools now know to what extent they may expect aid 
from the branches, and these addresses will not be continued to any con- 
siderable degree. 

Talks to children in the elementary schools have led in many cases to 
over-stimulation of circulation, and these will be fewer until the supply of 
books has been largely increased in the children's rooms. 

Special study cards have been issued to readers to the number of 3,355 
(279 more than in 1907). Of these 2,738 were in actual use on December 
22nd. About 4,000 teachers are using the branches for purposes of syste- 
matic study. Teachers have endorsed during the year 25,260 application 
blanks for their pupils. This is 630 less than in 1907, but the practice of 
requiring parents instead of teachers to sign these blanks for children has 
been instituted at nine branches. That the interest of the teachers in the use 
of the branches by children has been developed during the year seems indi- 
cated by the reference use, which has grown from 106,875 i" ^9^7 to iZ7,S77 
in 1908, including elementary and high-school reference use in branches. It 
is estimated that there are in the elementary and high schools, in Manhattan, 
The Bronx, and Richmond, 65,700 children who are old enough, or far 
enough advanced in their studies, to be able to make use of reference books. 



307 books have been lost by children who had their teachers' endorse- 
ments, an increase of 45 over the preceding year. This may possibly be 
explained by the increase in the number of branches and by removals of card 
holders to other boroughs. 

The losses on account of books issued to teachers without guarantors 
have decreased, only two volumes having been lost in this way in the year. 
These were taken by a substitute and not by a regular teacher. 

As teachers have come to realize that they may obtain from the branches 
books needed for professional advancement the demands upon branches 
have been very largely increased. In attempting to meet these the Library 
has been obliged to purchase a large number of books. The following tables 
show the reason for the purchases and the classification of the books so pur- 
chased :

Special effort has been made to equip the branches with books that would 
be useful in connection with the reference work of the elementai:y and high 
schools. In addition to the usual works of reference, dictionaries, encyclo-. 
paedias, almanacs, atlases, and so on, a list of books has been compiled that 
includes all of the required reading of these schools, with books related to the 
courses of the various grades and departments, including almost every sub- 
ject in which the average boy or girl may be interested. The collection has 
been placed as a whole in the Tompkins Square branch, and in part, in 
nearly all other branches in Manhattan and The Bronx. The following 
table shows the distribution by volumes :

These books were purchased mainly in the latter part of the year, and it 
is not yet possible to determine the extent of their use, but a marked increase 
in the use of reference books by children is indicated. When these collec- 
tions are complete a teacher may send any pupil to the nearest branch with 
the assurance that the desired books will be immediately at hand, and the 
boys and girls will acquire the habit of a very free use of the Library. It is 
desirable that teachers should be able to bring or send their pupils to the 
Library for instruction in the use of a library as a tool, in the use of the card 
catalogue, reference books, and so on, and at times to hold the "literature 
period" in a branch. During the past year some attempt has been made 
along these lines, fifty-three teachers having brought their classes, or parts 
of classes, to the branches ; six of these teachers held their class periods in 
the branch. The library staff instructed forty-seven groups of pupils in the 
use of the catalogues, dictionaries, and other library tools. 

It has been arranged that ten lectures on the use of a library be given by 
a member of the staff to the students at the New York Training School for 
Teachers. The syllabus for this course is based in part on like courses in 
normal schools in various parts of this country. Library privileges enjoyed 
by regular teachers have now been extended to students at the normal and 
training schools of the city. 

Reading lists in connection with the work with schools, to the number of 
564, have been made at branches for individual teachers, for class purposes, 
for reading clubs, and for the evening lectures of the Board of Education. 

Work with Children. 

The work with children has been extended and strengthened along the 
lines indicated in the last annual report. Four new children's libraries have 
been opened and the work with children at five branches has been fully or 
partially reorganized. There are now forty points of administration, includ- 
ing the office of the Supervisor. 

The circulation of books from children's rooms in 1908 was 2,175,347, In 
1907 it was 1,871,800. (These figures do not include the circulation to 
children through travelling libraries.) The increase in volume of circulation 
is marked by a far more gratifying increase in the quality of the books circu- 
lated and the amount of actual reading reported by the children on returning 
their books or at the story hours. 

65,381 books have been added to the shelves. In 1907 the number was 
38,094. Of this nimiber about 3,500 volumes have been acquired through 
the office of the Supervisor of School Work for the use of boys and girls who 
come to read and to study in the children's rooms in connection with their 
lessons. Owing to the difficulty of keeping attendance records in a room in 


which circulation, reference-work, and reading-room work must be carried 
on simultaneously by a limited number of assistants, it is not possible to give 
accurate statistical records of this feature of the work, but at many branches 
lines of children wait daily for admission to a room already crowded to its 
full capacity. At certain branches it has been necessary to limit the use of 
the children's reference- and reading-room to the hours between six and 
eight o'clock and at times to limit each child's use of the rooms to one hour 
in order to g^ve the waiting children an opportimity to use the books required 
by their home work. 

The care of books in reference- and reading-rooms has been exceptionally 
good; very few losses have been reported and the presence of attractive 
books is a constant incentive to cleaner hands and more orderly ways on the 
part of the children and a higher standard of routine work on the part of the 
assistants. The increased and more intelligent use of books in the reference- 
and reading-rooms has had a very marked effect on the circulating collec- 
tions. It has been observed at several libraries that boys and girls who have 
formed the habit of reading and referring to books in the children's rooms 
make a more careful selection from the circulating shelves, keep the books 
longer, are more likely to read them through, and take better care of books 
than do those whose use of the library is limited merely to circulation 

Picture books in paper covers were again provided for holiday use at all 
branches. Duplicates of these books have been re-enforced at slight expense 
and circulated from several branches to the great delight of the younger 
children and of those who are mentally defective or backward in learning to. 

A complete inventory of the books shelved in children's rooms was taken 
in May and a preliminary report was rendered on June ist with a •final 
report at the end of the year. As this is the first separate shelf reading of 
books in children's rooms, it is impossible to make comparison with any class 
except juvenile fiction. 

In that class, the losses are greatly reduced from those of previous years. 
The issue of reading-room cards to children who do not hold membership 
cards and the requirement of passing the charging desk on entering and leav- 
ing the room have proved effective measures of control. 

A re-registration of children, with the parent or guardian as reference, 
has been made at nine branches. At two of these, which are among the 
oldest libraries, the circulation has been doubled. At certain branches in 
foreign neighborhoods assistants have visited the homes of the children to 
secure the parent's consent and, in many instances, have been able to induce 
them to visit the library or to send by their children for books in their native 


language. In this manner an entire force of new assistants has gained such 
a knowledge of their district within the space of a month that it has been 
possible to maintain a very large circulation with comparative ease. 

Story telling has been given a more definite place in the general scheme 
of work, keeping three main objects in view: (i) To give the rural com- 
munities a wider range of interests in books. (2) To preserve to children of 
foreign parentage the traditions and folk-tales of their native land. (3) To 
add life and interest to the exhibits sent by the American Museum of Natural 
History and to such exhibitions of books and pictures as may be placed in 
children's rooms. 

In addition to her duties in connection with the office, the Supervisor's 
assistant has acted as visiting story-teller to twenty-five branches and two 
Home Library circles. In response to the interest aroused by the exhibit of 
books suggested as Christmas gifts, now a permanent collection at the St. 
George branch, she has told stories at six parents' meetings and at the 
assemblies of three public schools on Staten Island. One school is seven 
miles from a library. Her selection of stories has been made chiefly from 
the old folk-tales alternated with legendary, historical, and humorous stories, 
and she has given preference to groups of younger children. 

She reports a very interesting contrast between the effect of the story 
hour upon the rural branch, where it is regarded as an event in the week to 
which the children look forward with great eagerness and by means of which 
many of them acquire the library habit, and its effect upon a branch already 
so crowded as to need no attraction to bring the children to the library other 
than the books afford. In the case of the crowded branch the story hour is 
valuable for the training given the children in habits of reading and listening. 

On the first of October a children's librarian, who has been notably suc- 
cessful in adapting stories from a wide range of literary sources, was 
appointed to the staff to carry on story-telling among the older children, to 
arrange the exhibits lent by the American Museum of Natural History, and 
to give such direction as might be needed to assistants in charge of children's 
rooms who were already holding regular story hour^ and reading clubs or 
who wished to organize such groups. 

With a view to gaining more definite impressions of racial characteristics 
and differences in temperament, the new assistant began her work by giving 
a series of stories from Norse m)rthology at four t3rpical branches. The 
series extended over a period of two months and was given once a week at 
two East Side and at two West Side branches. The stories were most 
successful at the West side branches and the books containing them are still 
in constant circulation. At one branch, in the heart of the theatrical district, 
the group was made up entirely of boys who became so enthusiastic as to 


suggest telling stories themselves, which they have been allowed to do after 
the regular story hour. Story hours for older boys have also been held at 
other branches at which Poe's "Gold Bug" and "The Purloined Letter" and 
Stevenson's "Bottle Imp" have been received with absorbing interest and 
many boys hitherto unacquainted with real literature have been introduced 
into an entirely new field. Twenty assistants are now conducting regular 
story hours or clubs and the work at a number of branches is of a very high 

In connection with the Museum exhibits very interesting story hours 
have been held at Hudson Park and at Tremont. The decided increase 
in the percentage of books circulated in non-fiction classes at Hudson Park 
is attributed to the direct effect of the exhibits and the story hours on 
children who have required much training in reading habits. 

At Tremont, in connection with the Arctic exhibit, special story hours 
were given for the pupils of a school for deaf mutes who visited the exhibit 
accompanied by their teachers. They were allowed to handle all the objects 
in use before the story began and afterward were given an opportunity to 
ask questions through their interpreter. After the story hour the boys and 
girls were conducted through the library and thirty of the number have be- 
come members of the Tremont branch. They as well as their teachers 
constantly ask for more story hours as an incentive to more varied interests 
in their reading. 

A Chinese exhibit at the St. Agnes branch, a Scandinavian exhibit, and 
a small exhibit of Iroquois Indian objects have been added to the exhibits 
reported in use last year. It is the intention to place other exhibits in con- 
nection with the folk tales to be given in the foreign neighborhoods. 

A story hour for Bohemian children was held on the second anniversary 
of the opening of the Webster branch and a Bohemian lady has volun- 
teered to tell stories to the children in their native language during the 
winter, thus acquainting them with the books for children in the Bohemian 
department of the library. 

The monthly meeting for assistants in charge of children's rooms and the 
meetings for the informal discussion of children's books attended by the 
librarians-in-charge and by assistants have helped very greatly in establishing 
and developing the work. 

In June a new grade, that of children's librarian, was created in the staff 
of the department. Four assistants in children's rooms were promoted to 
this grade, two were appointed to it during the summer, and three are now 
qualifying for it by a special test. By the end of another year it is expected 
that the number of qualified children's librarians will be very considerably 



In addition to the increasing volume of work connected with the selection 
and duplication of books and the engagement and training of assistants the 
Supervisor is constantly consulted with reference to lists of books for insti- 
tutions and individuals and is frequently asked to speak upon children's 
books or on some phase of the work, outside of library circles. Almost daily 
visitors are received from other cities who wish to observe the work at 
typical branches.

Work with the Blind. 

The collection of books for the blind has almost outgrown its quarters in 
the St. Agnes branch building. It now numbers 3,394 volumes and 2,975 
pieces of music, distributed as follows among the various types : 



New York Point 264 1,137 1408 2,255

During the year 126 volumes have worn out and have been discarded. 
The circulation, classified according to types, has been as follows :

Effort is constantly made to meet the demand for literature in all systems 
of typography, but the fact that no one of these is yet regarded as standard' 
is a drawback to the usefulness of the library, as it must be in any collection 
of books for the blind. 

There has been a noteworthy increase in the circulation of books in 
European Braille type, due to the circulation of magazines published abroad. 
The number of volumes taken out is larger by 1,647 *3Ui the total of last 
year. Of the volumes circulated, 8,558 were sent out by mail, under the 
free-postage law, and 270 by express to points not easily accessible by post. 
The ntmiber of persons actually using the collection during the year was 
443. Altogether 751 names are on the registration book, classified by their 
use of types as follows :

The work of the teacher attached to this office has been greatly affected 
by the establishment of the Ziegler magazine for the blind. Many blind 
persons whose attempts to read a point system had hitherto resulted in fail- 
ure, have now mastered one in order to be able to use this publication, which 
is distributed free of charge. The teacher has visited 694 blind persons in 
their homes. 

Requests for reading matter have been received daily from all parts of 
the country. These are granted at once whenever the request comes from 
New York, New Jersey, or Connecticut, and in other cases by special permis- 
sion of the Chairman of the Circulation Committee. Readers outside of 
Greater New York have been distributed as follows :

NG Libraries. 

Through travelling libraries, under the supervision of Miss A. E. Brown^ 
989,845 books were circulated in 1908, an increase of 142,576, or 17 per cent, 
over the year 1907. The number of travelling library stations to which 
books were sent during the year was 717. The number operated at the 
end of 1908 was 578 (Manhattan and The Bronx, 511 ; Richmond, 67). 

Circulation through public schools and colleges has amounted to 432,543 
vol tunes; through industrial schools, 208,661; private schools, 100,426; the 
fire department, 18,334 ; other public departments, 47,345 ; churches, Sunday 
schools, etc., 46,292; settlements, clubs, and mercantile establishments, 33,- 
021 ; home libraries, 21,803. 

The branch office for Staten Island which was opened last year in the 
St. George branch has been largely used, and its establishment has greatly 
increased the circulation through travelling libraries on the island. Books 
have been sent to 81 stations here during the year and the circulation 
through those has amounted to 31,148. Where the books sent are for the 
benefit of an entire community, and not merely for a school, club, or some 
other organization, effort has been made to place them where they will be 
equally accessible to all classes. In many localities the collections have been 
housed in stores, with excellent results. Such are the libraries at Great 
Kills, where a club formed for the purpose has rented space for the books 
and pays an assistant to care for them ; at Westerleigh, at Linoleumville, at 
Rossville, at Kreischerville, and at Mariner's Harbor. The number of these 
community libraries in places too small to have branches of their own and 
too remote from established branches to use them freely will be increased in 
the near future. 

In connection with the supply of literature to the schools, developments in 
their recreation departments have been of interest. The Library supplied 
the playgrounds during the summer and is now supplying the recreation 
centres with all of the books used therein. The recreation centres have set 
apart a room in each centre for purposes of study, and these are helpful in 
neighborhoods where the homes are cramped and insufficiently lighted. In 
these rooms we supply text-books and, as far as possible, other books help- 
ful to the general student. 


Work with study-clubs has been extended during the year and numerous 
collections have also been sent to vacation camps conducted by organiza- 
tions belonging to this city. About half of these were sent through the 
Y. M. C. A. 

Work with commercial institutions has been broadened through the In- 
dustrial department of the Y. M. C. A. which has arranged for sets of books 
in eight large factories that could probably have been reached in no other 
way. In like manner the Presbyterian Board of Home Missions has assisted 
us in placing collections in a number of foreign churches throughout the city. 

In May the branches began to send discarded books in fair but not in 
perfect condition to the Travelling Library Office for distribution. These are 
sent to places where it would not be advisable to send books from the regular 
stock, or from which books can not be returned, such as certain homes and 
hospitals, penal institutions, etc. Some of these have been placed on revenue 
cutters leaving New York. This plan enables the library to remove some- 
what soiled books from branch shelves with the assurance that use will still 
be made of them, and it enables us to furnish collections to many institu- 
tions to which it would be impossible to send volumes in perfectly good 

During the past year there has been a new opening for Home Libraries, 
among people of one of the recently built up parts of New York, the extreme 
northern district, sparsely settled and remote. Several Home Libraries 
have been given out on the lower E^st Side, through the Public Playground 
at 17th Street and Avenue C. 

Table XV gives a detailed statement of the entire work carried on 
through the Travelling Library Office. 

Book-order Office. 

During the year this office has ordered and distributed to branches, in 
round numbers, 175,000 volumes ; has sorted 100,000 magazines for numbers 
to complete volumes for binding, and has superintended the binding and dis- 
tribution of 4,000 such volumes. 

In many cases books costing $5.00 or more have been purchased at 
lower prices than are obtainable from the publishers or from regular whole- 
sale dealers, and a card record has been made of the price, binding, and 
source. Volumes published at less than $5.00 have been examined to the 
number of 75,000, in order to determine that the edition ordered has been 
supplied and that the right discount has been given. When books are 
strongly bound from the sheets each copy has been examined after checking, 
to verify the published price, discount, and binding charge. Prices have thus 
been reduced on about 3,500 books billed at incorrect amounts. 


During the year, 5,000 books have been received on approval and 25,000 
triplicate order slips have been written for such books. 

Invoices, showing the author and title of each book sent out to the 
branches, have been prepared daily for delivery with the packages. Signed 
book slips, invoices, and package receipts returned from the branches have 
been sorted, checked with duplicate records, and filed to the number of 

A card catalogue of fiction, poetry, and essays in general demand, compris- 
ing 4,000 titles and 12,000 editions now in print, has been prepared in the 
office. The editions best suited in type, paper, and price for library use 
have been noted, in many cases from actual comparison. This information 
has been used in ordering, and a large saving has been, effected on about 
50,000 volumes purchased. 

New titles to the number of 4,605 were purchased for circulation in 1908. 
Of these perhaps one-third were selected in response to demands at branches. 
Several thousand titles were examined on approval, of which all but about 
1,000 were selected. The advice of experts was asked regarding such books 
as came within their provinces. 

From the Spiegelberg fund for the purchase of biography twenty-seven 
volumes have been added to the collection at the East Broadway branch 
at a cost of $41.34; the total number of volumes in the alcove is 1,976. For 
the Weil alcove at Aguilar twenty-nine volumes have been bought at a 
cost of $39.04 ; the collection now numbers 258 volumes. From the Otten- 
dorfer fund books have been bought to the amount of $400 and supplies to 
the amount of $300; from the Bruce fund, books, $1,557.02; supplies, $400; 
Schiff fund, books, $267.64; Women's fund, books, $100; Library for the 
Blind fund, books, $58.44. 


The Supervisor of Binding, whose appointment was noted in the last 
report, has been on duty during the year and by her efforts has contributed 
greatly to the systematization of the rebinding and discarding of worn-out 
or soiled books at the various branches. The selection of books for these 
purposes is reviewed by the supervisor in each case and in some cases is 
made by her directly from the shelves. The result is a uniformity of action 
that could have been obtained in no other way. The work done at our 
bindery has amounted to only about one-eighth of the total. 

The policy of binding strongly, directly from the sheets, and before plac- 
ing them on the shelves, such books as would otherwise require early re- 
binding, has been continued and extended. Of the 175,000 volumes pur- 
chased during the year, about 40,000 were thus bound. 

At the beginning of the year, about 20,000 volumes were waiting to be 


bound owing to lack of funds. At the end, about 8,000 volumes are wait- 
ing. There has thus been much progress toward the time when we shall be 
able to rebind every book as soon as necessary, but that desirable condition 
has not yet been reached. The number of books sent to be rebound during 
the year, excluding volumes of periodicals, was 70,700, of which 61,518 had 
been returned by December 31. Of these, 8408 were done at our own 
bindery, and about 3,000 of them were selected by the supervisor from per- 
sonal inspection at thirteen branches. 

The number of periodicals bound has been considerably reduced by the 
use of pamphlet cases when the periodical is for reference and not for 
circulation. Five hundred such cases were in use experimentally during the 
year, and the plan will be continued. 

The number of volumes discarded during the year is 93,666, of which 
about 15,000 were sent to the Travelling Library Office for use in stations 
where conditions are such that the furnishing of new copies is undesirable. 
The remainder was sold for waste paper, for which the sum of $72.40 was 
received. Of the books discarded, 6,136 were selected on personal inspec- 
tion by the supervisor at thirteen branches. About 75 per cent, of these 
were adult fiction, many of them cheap editions and in cheap bindings, such 
as are no longer purchased. It is \o be expected that the annual ntunber 
of books discarded will be large for two or three years to come and then drop 
to a tmiform figure of about i per cent, of the circulation, which would be 
about 65,000 for the current year. 

Ordinary mending of books has been done at the branches, the work 
being placed always in charge of the same assistant, who sorts each day the 
books not in condition to circulate into three classes, those to be discarded, 
those to be bound, and those to be mended. With few exceptions the only 
kinds of mending done are as follows: (i) inserting occasional loose pages, 
(2) mending torn pages, replacing comers, mending maps, etc., (3) adding 
fresh fly-leaves, (4) covering, (5) putting on new sides. Very little washing 
of pages is now done and only when the greater part of the book is in good 
condition, except with expensive juvenile books, which have usually few 
pages and are of such paper that they may be washed to advantage. 

An expert binder is assigned regularly to the work of instructing assist- 
ants how to mend books and of inspecting the mending-work from time to 
time to see that it is properly done. 

Books Missing from Shelves.

year, together with those recovered after a previous report of loss, appears

Inventories, as before, have been taken monthly during the year, one 
adult class being examined at a time, so that the whole collection is gone 
over annually. All books in children's rooms, of whatever class, are ex- 
amined at the same time. The net loss is 4,687, as against 3,859 for the 
year ending June 31, 1907. The fact that the nimibers reported missing 
and recovered both show large decrease (3,920 in one casetand 2,916 in 
the other) indicates greater care in taking the inventories. 

Owing to the fact that travelling libraries are in charge of outsiders it is 
very difficult to ascertain whether books missing from these were lost 
through circulation or taken from the shelves. Of 959 volumes reported 
lost and not paid for during the year, possibly one-half were lost in other 
ways than through the circulation. 


In addition to the displays of prints and other objects of interest men- 
tioned in the report for 1907, many of which have been continued, those

sisting of members of the staff, decided that the following, in the order 
named, were the best: "Uncle Remus" (made at Yorkville), "Sleepy

of circulation amounting to 78,721. 


Each branch library receives daily the printed list of contagious diseases, 
with names and localities, prepared by the Board of Health for the public 
schools. During the past year, a change has been made, at the request of 
the Board, in the procedure incident to the disinfection of exposed books. 
Instead of notifying the holder to deliver such a book to a Board of Health 
messenger for return to the library after treatment, he is now notified to re- 
tain the book until after the general disinfection of the premises and then 
to return it to the library, where it is placed in a receptacle furnished for 
the purpose by the Board. A messenger from the Board calls for these 
books every few days and they receive a second and special disinfection 
before being placed on the shelves. In cases where it seems desirable to 
do so the books are destroyed.

At the Lenox branch the historical exhibition of painter-lithography remained 
on view. To it was added the noted portrait of Washington by Rembrandt Peale, 
an early specimen of American lithography, loaned by Mr. S. P. Avery. The 
Bohemian prints and the Poe exhibit gave way on February 8 to a Lincoln exhibi- 
tion. This included books, autographs, and medals, but consisted mainly of 
portraits and other prints relating to Abraham Lincoln. The portraits showed 
Lincoln at various ages, being practically all reproductions of, or based on, origi- 
nals made in 1848, 1853, 1857, 1858, i860, 1863, 1864, and 1865. They ranged 
from such noteworthy ones as those signed by W. E. Marshall and Thomas 
Johnson to the inferior engravings and lithographs once plentifully issued and 
included a pastel study of "The Boy Lincoln" by the late Eastman Johnson, loaned 
by Mrs. Johnson. An interesting group consisted of memorial cards and badges 
issued at the time of Lincoln's death. The other prints were scenes in the Presi- 
dent's life, pictures of the assassination, death, funeral, and caricatures. 

At the AsTOR branch the exhibition of reproductions of contemporary German 
and Austrian sculpture was continued, in addition to which were shown plates 
from the catalogue of objects of art in the Hoentschel collection presented to the 
Metropolitan Museum of Art by Mr. J. Pierpont Morgan.

Independence. At the Hamilton Fish Park branch was shown an exhibit of 
cotton in its various phases from plant to fabric, contributed by the Proximity 
Manufacturing Co., of Greensboro, N. C., and at the Port Richmond branch an 
exhibit of pictures in colors of birds. 

Two new buildings for circulation branches have recently been opened, one a 
new home for the Harlem Library branch, the other a building for the newly 
established Hamilton Fish Park branch. The formal opening of the new 
Harlem Library branch, 9 West 124th Street, Mount Morris Park, took place on 
Monday, January 11, at five p. m. Alderman Reginald S. Doull as the representa- 
tive of the Mayor received the building from Charles Howland Russell, Esq., 
Secretary of the Board of Trustees of the New York Public Library, and then 
returned it to the library for administration. Brief addresses were also made by 
D. Phoenix Ingraham, Esq., former President of the Board of Trustees of the 
Harlem Library, Ronald K. Brown, Esq., former Chairman of its Library Com- 
mittee, Dr. John S. Billings, Director of the New York Public Library, and Dr. 
Arthur E. Bostwick, chief of the Circulation Department. Music was furnished 
through the courtesy of Miss Florence McMillan and Miss E. Eleanor Patterson. 

The Hamilton Fish Park branch at 388 East Houston Street was opened 
on February 26. The Board of Trustees was represented by Cleveland H. Dodge, 
Esq., and the City by President P. F. McGowan of the Board of Aldermen. 
Addresses were also made by the Hon. Hamilton Fish and by Dr. J. S. Billings, 
Director of the library; and music was furnished by Miss Elizabeth Mandelkem 
on the piano and Mr. Samuel UUman on the violin. 

The library opens with about twelve thousand volumes on its shelves, about one 
thousand of which are in the Hungarian language, including a notable gift of eight 
hundred volumes presented by the Government of Hungary, through Count 
Apponyi, Minister of Public Instruction. It forms the fortieth branch of the 
library and is the thirtieth branch erected from Carnegie funds. 

At the regular meeting of the Board of Trustees on February 10, 1909, John 
Henry Hammond, Esq., was elected to fill the vacancy caused by the death of 
Edward King.

Mr. Legler, in his letter of Dec. 8. 1904, transmitting the 
missing pages, lays: ** I find, upon referring to my copy, 
that these preliminary pages are printed upon paper different 
in texture from the paper beginning with page 17. I judge, 
therefore, that this material must have been printed subse- 
quently to the main body of the work and bound in by some 
one who had the original sheets. I have had the typewritten 
copy made upon sheets approximately the same size as the 
original and in a way to indicate the material upon each pa^e. 
The last page of printed matter in this preliminary material 
is numbered 7. The recto of this page is blank and then 
there is a skip to page 17."

At the Lenox branch the historical exhibition of painter-lithography remained 
on view in the print galleries. On the lower floor the etchings, lithographs, and 
woodcuts by contemporary Bohemian artists were again displayed. The charac- 
teristic portraits by Max Svabinsky, the interesting color-etchings by Frantisek 
Simon (which well illustrate possibilities of getting effects out of the copper-plate 
by other means than the pure etched line), the dry-points of Kupka (which, 
though delightful impromptu affairs, do not fully represent the resourcefulness of 
this artist), the effective snow-scenes in Prague by Stretti and Hofbauer, the 
sympathetic presentations of Slovak life by Uprka and Jiranek, the effective work 
of Preissig and Hnatek, all illustrate many forms of individual expression in an 
interesting national phase of graphic art practically unknown here before. 

At the AsTOR branch the reproductions of objects in the Hoentschel collection, 
and the pictures of interiors and woodwork, style of Louis XV, in the Chateau de 
Rambouillet, were on view.

At the regular meeting of the Board of Trustees held on April 14, 1909, a 
number of members of the Board offered to the Library a portrait of the Director, 
Dr. John S. Billings, recently painted by Miss Ellen Emmet, and a resolution 
accepting the portrait was adopted by the Trustees. 


At the regular meeting of the Board of Trustees on April 14, 1909, the 
Director laid before them the following letter: 

New York, March 17th, 1909. 
My Dear Dr. Billings: 

Referring to the correspondence and personal conference we 
have had on the subject, I hereby formally offer to present to the 
New York Public Library the Tissot Collection of 371 original 
Water Color Illustrations of the Old Testament, which I have 
recently acquired. 

The conditions under which this presentation is to be made, 
are as follows: 

Arrangements are to be made by the New York Public Library 
to first have a general exhibition of the whole collection in the new 
building of the Library after its opening for several months, after 
which the collection is to be divided into a number of sections, 
sent to and exhibited in the reading rooms of the branches of the 
New York Public Library, in a manner that these collections or 
groups can be carefully examined by the public. Then these 
groups or collections should pass in rotation through the different 
branches, so that ultimately the entire collection will have been 
viewed at each branch. 

In this way, as you have suggested, in the course of four or five 
years, the larger part of the present population of New York would 
have had an opportunity to see the entire collection^ of these illus- 

The collection is then at the discretion of the Library authori- 
ties, to be removed and taken into careful custody, to be again 
exhibited in like manner after a lapse of not more than twenty 
years, and this modus of exhibition is to continue in like periods 
of twenty years, it being understood and agreed, that if for any 
reason the Trustees of the New York Public Library should deem 
it well to discontinue the exhibition of the collection at least once 
every twenty years, my heirs shall have the right to demand the 
return to them of the entire collection. Should any dispute between 
the authorities of the library and my heirs arise, such dispute is to 
be settled by arbitration. 

The New York Public Library, while the collection is in custody 
and not on public exhibition, shall have the right to loan all or any 



part of the illustrations for exhibition in other cities, if the authori- 
ties of the Library deem it well in their own judgment to do this. 

If the above is in accord with the understanding which we have 
arrived at in our correspondence and conference, I suggest that it 
may be well to embody this into a formal agreement, but meantime 
upon confirmation of the above by you, I shall be prepared to turn 
over the collection to the Library, and will have it delivered to the 
Library, if you will inform me where to send the collection. 

Thanking you for your interest, I am 

Yours faithfully, 

Jacob H. Schiff. 

The gift was accepted on the conditions above set forth. At present the 
paintings are stored in the Lenox branch of the Library. 


RiviDgton Street Branch, New York Public Library. 

Arthur Guiterman in the New York Times. 

G>me, ye that despair of the land 

Which the Future shall know — 
Who doubt what the years that expand 

In their fullness must show — 
Who grasp not the thing which shall be 

When deliverance comes 
To millions in bondage — ^and see, 

At the verge of the slums, 
These foreign-born children that march 

In their hundreds and more 
In sunshine and storm, through the arch 

Of the library door ! 

Their race? Ah, what matters their race 

To our generous Mold 
Of Nations ! Yet, if ye would trace 

All the record unrolled. 
Take heart from the days that are dead: 

For the fathers of these 
With Leif or with Eric the Red 

Braved mysterious seas, 
Or followed Yermak through the snows 

Of a boreal dome. 
Or gave to the eagles the foes 

Of Imperial Rome; 
Or tented with David, or ranked 

In the Balkans those swords 
That bulwarked all Europe, unthanked, 

From the Ottoman hordes. 
Aye, old at the time of the Flood, 

Still the law is the same ; 
The Builder shall spring from the blood 

Whence the Warrior came. 

They trail through the alley and mart 

To this Palace of Tomes — 
Wee urchins, red-hatted and swart 

As their underworld gnomes, 
And hundreds of quaint little maids 

Wearing ribands of green 



Or scarlet on duplicate braids, 

Quick-eyed, orderly, clean. 
And silent. Some take from the shelves 

Of the volumes a-row 
Those legends of goblins and elves 

That we loved long ago ; 
Yet more choose the stories of men 

Whom a nation reveres — 
Of Lincoln and Washington, then 

Of the bold pioneers 
Who ploughed in a blood-sprinkled sod. 

Whose strong hands caused to rise 
That Temple which these, under God, 

Yet shall rear to the skies !
