growth of the action oi me couum.c
"At this same conclave I was assign
ed to go to Illinois with a band of
French Canadian Catholics and to
found a colony or co.onies. Colonists
also came from France, and ear.y in
1852 I founded my colony at St. Anne,

church was built, and we had a con

"In 1858, after several years of
. .nd manv trials. I determined
to leave the Church of Rome, whose
trini T nn Intieer believed. It was
on Saturday evening that I reached
my final determination, and the next
morning I went into the pulpit and
told my congregation of the step I
as Bhnnt to take, and my reasons.
After talking to them for two hours
I put the matter to a vote, and all but
fifteen of my 300 parishioners ex
pressed their intention of following
me. Tnis action, when it became
known, created no little excitement all
over the country. About a year later
we joined the Chicago Presbytery, and
afterward the Canadian Presbytery
to which we still belong.
"Previous to this Abraham Lincoln

cuted by the church, and when, some
time after our withdrawal from the
church our colony was theatened with
destruction from famine, ne came iur

lecture, in which he denounced the or

boldness. This made our former
friendship all the stronger.
"In 1862 a Canadian Jesuit priest
was converted through my teaching,

of that order to assaainate . Mr. Lin-
coin. He told me that the plot was
i first laid in 1861. I went at once to

V Mr. Lincoln warned him of what I had
' learned. He told me that he was al

priests, told Chaplain Conwell that)
President Lincoln and Secretary Sew

Mr. Bennett returned from the barn to
the tavern the landlord reiterated the
atatement to both his guests.
