Excerpt from Instructive and Curious Epistles, From Catholic Clergymen of the Society of Jesus

Their intimacy with savage life exceeded that of all other travellers. Having had the very highest education -for they themselves, reader, need I tell you, were the mightiest masters of the science having had the very highest education, those bright intelligences, enriched with all the Greek and all the Roman gave - men to whom nothing was nu known, those gifted, elegant, and cultivated spirits, have spent 40 years among the savages. Oh, what a sacrifice was that they who might have shone in the courts of European kings, and eclipsed the lustre of the brightest, they have been content to accompany the red man in his dismal expeditions in pursuit of game; they have been content to light the calumet of ever-during peace in the councils of the savage red skin Yes, their Vir tues were sufficient to win her from the skies, her habitual refuge from the violence of man, and per suade her to inhabit in the Wigwam of savages!
