Excerpt

; mangée par un ours: j'ai puni l'ours, j'ai porté longtemps sa peau; mais cela ne m'a pas consolé.

Mademoiselle de Saint-Yves, à ce récit, sentait un plaisir secret d'apprendre que l'Ingénu n'avait eu qu'une maîtresse, et qu'Abacaba n'était plus; mais elle ne démêlait pas la cause de son plaisir. Tout le monde fixait les yeux sur l'Ingénu; on le louait beaucoup d'avoir empêché ses camarades de manger un Algonquin.

Je suis de ma religion, dit-il, comme vous de la vôtre. Hélas! s'écria la Kerkabon, je vois bien que ces malheureux Anglais n'ont pas seulement songé à le baptiser. Eh! mon Dieu, disait mademoiselle de Saint-Yve
