ADMINISTRATIVE POWERS

GOVERNOR

A Commission as Governor and Lieutenant-General in Canada, Acadia and the Island of Newfoundland, and other countries in North America, for M. de Courcelles, March 23, 1665.

Louis, by the Grace of God, King of France and of Navarre, to all who see these present letters, greeting:

Having resolved to withdraw the Sieur de Mézy from the post of Governor and our Lieutenant-General in Canada, and to appoint in his place a person on whose competence and fidelity we can rely for the guidance of our peoples in the said country, for propagating Christianity, improving commerce and increasing the number of colonies, we have chosen to assume this charge our dear and well-beloved Sieur de Courcelles, our lieutenant in the government of Thionville, who has on several occasions given proof of his experience and valour, and whom we know to have all the qualities necessary to acquit himself worthily of the said charge.
