Excerpt from Old and New Canada, 1753-1844: Historic Scenes and Social Pictures, or the Life of Joseph-Franç:ois Perrault

The present is a hasty and, it is feared, an imperfect work, designed to carry out a cherished object of the author, although its production, in the first instance, was decided upon wholly for the gratification of the relatives and friends of the late Mr. Perrault. They had frequently expressed their high regard for his character and their admiration of his worthy life, and regretted that no literary memorial existed of a nature to make both better known to the present generation. In mitigation of any defects or shortcomings, may fairly be pleaded the writer's limited leisure, from the call of exacting daily and nightly professional duties, and the paucity of his materials, greatly lessened by the wear and tear and accidents of time. Despite these disadvantages, he has endeavored to throw all available light on the character, talents and philanthropic labors of the subject of this memoir, making use of such published and manuscript matter as could be procured for the purpose.
