Catalogue Note

An important contemporary source for French Louisiana, "as showing the French claims to the Southern territory now occupied by several states, but claimed also by the English under the name of "Carolana". The author resided in Louisiana fifteen years, and it is from his relation that most of details of the life of the Natchez and other Mississippi tribes of Indians have been derived. Later historians have availed themselves of his materials" (Sabin).
