FOR THE YEAR 1934
The Hon. C. H. Cahan, K.C., M.P.,
Secretary of State of Canada.
Sra,—I have the honour to present to you a report of the activities of the
I Public Archives for the year 1934. The outstanding event during the last twelve
months in this department was the reception held in the building for the Dele-
I gates attending the Cartier Celebration. The guests were received in your absence
by the Honourable the Speaker of the Senate and Madame Blondin. A special
display of the early French books and manuscripts was arranged, and explanations were given by members of the staff. A letter of Voltaire from the North-
cliffe Collection was freely copied by members of the French Press, who were
conducted through the building by the Honourable Senator Beaubien. The
Voltaire letter has since been published in France and in Canada, and the text is
reproduced for the benefit of those who have not seen the original.

aux délices 6 SEPTbre 1762.
A M. de Richelieu
Si je ne voulois que faire entendre ma voix monseigneur, je me tairais dans
la crise des affaires ou vous êtes, mais j entends les voix de beaucoup d'étrangers;
touttes disent qu'on doit vous bénir si vous faittes la paix a quelque prix que ce
soit, permettez moy donc monseigneur de vous en faire mon compliment. Je
suis comme le public, jaime beaucoup mieux la paix que le canada; et je crois
que la france peut être heureuse sans quebec. vous nous donnez précisément ce
dont nous avons besoin, nous vous devons des actions de grace recevez en attendant avec votre bonté ordinaire le profond respect de voltaire.
(Translation)
Aux Délices, Sept. 6, 1762.
M. de Richelieu,
If my only purpose was to express my opinion, monseigneur, I would remain
silent in the crisis besetting you. But I hear the voice of many strangers. They
all say that you will deserve thanks if you make peace, at whatever cost. Monseigneur will therefore allow me to congratulate him in this regard. I am like
the public, I much prefer peace to Canada; and I believe that France can be
happy without Quebec. You give us exactly what we need. We owe you many
thanks. In the meantime, please accept with your well known kindness the
profound respects of Voltaire.
Through the courtesy of the Huntington Library a copy of the Vallard
map from the Dieppe Atlas is reproduced in colours for this volume. The map
records the voyages of Jacques Cartier and Roberval, and according to tradition
it was once owned by Cartier. For many years it was in the possession of the
estate of Sir Thomas Phillips of Cheltenham, England. Several attempts were
made to purchase the map by this department, but the price was prohibitive. It
was sold some ten years ago to the Huntington Library at San Marino, California.

A page from the Register at St. Malo has been reproduced to meet the
requests for examples of the signature of the discoverer of Canada. The model
of Carrier's ship, the Grande Hermine, presented to Canada by the city of
St. Malo, is deposited in the Public Archives. A photographic reproduction is
here given.

Fletcher's Widow.
Many inquiries were made last year in Canada and in France concerning
the flags of the Marine in the reign of Francis I. Mr. Buron, of the Paris staff,
has sent a note of his research in the French Archives which is here given:
" It is impossible to know what flags the French men-of-war or merchant
ships carried before 1661.
M194-2 10 PUBLIC ARCHIVES
Formerly, the ships carried the standard of the admiral of the port of
register.   A few displayed the royal standard, that is to say, the white flag, and
also the old flag of the French nation which is the white cross on blue cloth,  i
But the royal colours, those of the admiral and of the captain, and sometimes
those of the ship-owner also, could be carried by the same ship.
The  flag   historians  most   frequently   cite   in  their  generalizations,  the <
information they find in portulans and contemporary sketches or pictures.
We have adopted this criterion to ascertain the flags carried by the ships
at the time of Francis 1st.
In the National Library (Map Division), there are many portulans of
the sixteenth century, which Bouille used for his history of the French Flags, 2nd
edition, Paris, 1875.
Of the sixteenth century, the author writes as follows:—
' In portulan C. 13611, written by Pierre Roselli in 1462, France is indicated
by a blue ensign with three golden fleurs-de-lis and, at the flowing part, a
white vertical band charged with a red torteau; the staff is surmounted with
a red ball.'
' The same arrangement is seen in Gaspar Viegas' portulan of 1534 (C.
18773) ; but in this one, the blue is strewn with the fleurs-de-lis.'
' Another portulan by Gaspar Viegas, dated the same year, 1534, indicajjpll
France by a blue ensign bearing a single golden fleur-de-lis  (C. 18772) which
is also seen in that of Palestrina, 1511 (C. 5627).'
We have photographed the flag of France from, portulan C. 18773. Léon
Vallée, assistant custodian, chief of the map division of the National Library,
described this portulan, in his Catalogue of Documents exhibited in the Map
Division in 1912 {Revue des Bibliothèques, Nos. 4-6, April-June 1912, Paris,
Champion 1912), as follows:
1 336 Viegas (?) (Old marine chart showing the western part of the
Mediterranean and the part of the Atlantic bordering Europe and the north-west
of Africa. Ms. on vellum, with ensigns in colour. A tag Ms., pasted on the
back of the chart long after the time it was drawn, ascribes it to Gaspar Viegas
and gives as the date the year 1534).   1 leaf 0, 62 x 0, 84.'
' This chart came into the Library in 1865 following an exchange with
the Archives of the Empire.   C-18773.'
This portulan today bears the mark Réserve Ge. C. 5096."
In the Journal of York Fort of 1714 there is a copy of Governor Knight's
letter describing how he and Kelsey took possession of Fort Nelson in the
summer of 1714. " One of the Indians came wn I hoisted ye Union fflag he
told me he did not love to see yt he loved to See the White one So there is
many of The Indians has Great Friendship for the french here." (See Kelsey
Papers, p. XXIX, Public Archives, 1929). There are further instances of the
use of the white flag in Canada during the French régime.
Sir Leicester Harmsworth has made additions to the Northcliffe Collection
during the present year. The first item is a portrait of Monckton by T. Beach, a
pupil of Reynolds, and the second an engraved Atlas of Nova Scotia with the
book plate of Cosby of Annapolis Royal. Other items of interest to Annapolis
are the gifts of the Earl of Galway (Monckton), an original map of Fort
William Henry by Robert Monckton, a manuscript plan of Fort Pitt and a
Journal of the place, and a plan not yet received of the land granted in Annapolis Royal.
At this time when titles have been restored in Canada it may be of interest
to learn that nobility was conferred on certain persons during Champlain's time.
The names are taken from the original register, Francs-fiefs, p. 62, acquired
recently by the Secretary of State. REPORT FOR THE YEAR 1984 11

An Appendix to this report of over 600 pages of Constitutional Documents
has been printed and will be issued later. There is an index to be made of considerable length. In the course of preparation, no official translation could be
found of certain lengthy documents published in the Quebec Gazette. It is now
discovered that an official translation was made and published eight years later.
No explanation has been found for the delay.
An example of the incalculable mischief wrought by faulty translation of
public documents is here published, in the hope that it may meet the eye of
students writing on the subject to which it relates.

a large number of unofficial but noteworthy representatives. In France the
Committee France-Amérique organized a large delegation from parliament, the
municipal councils, the clergy, the academies, the universities, the boards of
trade, the press, etc., and engaged the transatlantic steamer Champlain to convey the entire group to Canada. The Champlain sailed from France on the
18th of August and arrived off Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, on the
24th.
The official itinerary of the reception and celebration was as follows:
Charlottetown, 24 August; Gaspé, 25-26 August; Quebec, 27-30 August; Trois
Rivières, 30 August; Montreal, 31 August-2 September; Ottawa, 2-3 September; Toronto, 4 September; Niagara, 5-6 September; Rochester, 6 September.
On the 3rd of September, after official receptions by the City of Ottawa, the
Government of Canada and the University of Ottawa, the delegates visited the
Public Archives.   They were received, in the absence of the Hon. C. H. Cahan,
by the Hon. Senator Blondin and Mme Blondin, and conducted through the
building by the Dominion Archivist and the staff.   Mr. M. B. de La Bruère,
head of the Archives Branch in Montreal, had accompanied the visitors from
that city.   The Archives building was decorated for the occasion, and a special
historical exhibit was arranged on the main floor.   The fine model of Jacques
Carrier's ship La Grande Hermine, which had been presented that day   to
Canada by the Mayor of St. Malo, and which will be preserved permanently in
the Public Archives, was on exhibition.   Accompanying it was the following
official certificate:

JAMES F. KENNEY. REPORT FOR THE YEAR l
CLASSIFICATION, INDEX AND INFORMATION DIVISION
The classification of the Militia Records during the past year includes a
start on the early correspondence relating to the Engineers' Branch. Additional early records relative to the Permanent Force have been received from
the Department of National Defence and are in course of classification for
reference purposes. A great number of deceased officers' files, (World War of
1914-1918), received from the National Defence Headquarters, have been added
to our collection.   There is a steady reference to these files.
The Fenian pay-rolls and service records received last year have been
classified and made available for reference.
RESEARCH AND INFORMATION
for data regarding Canada's early Militia have increased notably
and in each instance the required information and records were fully supplied
to historians of militia units, individuals and families. A notable aspect is the
number of inquiries received from the United States.
Several militia units are compiling histories at the present time, a movement we have encouraged and, in each instance, have given every assistance,
fully appreciating the historical importance and interest in these most valuable works for future reference.
Since my last report in December, 1933, the requests for information and
the transcription of documents number 1,863, which shows an increase of three
hundred and six.
Students from many countries, historical associations, churches and religious associations, departments of the Canadian and Provincial governments,
members of Parliament and of several Legislatures, universities and individuals, continue to seek information from the Public Archives. We endeavour,
in all cases, to give satisfaction.
The different questions dealt with have been: genealogical information,
United Empire Loyalists, family crests and arms, material relating to the
growth and development of Canada and its Provinces, conferences leading to
Confederation, negotiations for settlement of national boundaries, histories of
banks, forts, hospitals, schools, King's posts, land grants, Indian rights, early
mills, post offices, newspapers, historic monuments, etc.
INDEX
The Quebec Gazette has been indexed for the whole year 1818 and, for
1819 as far as the month of September. The information contained in this
paper is of the utmost value. This index ought to be continued up to the Union
of 1841.
Cards typewritten, classified and placed in their respective drawers

The index of the Annual Reports of the Public Archives, English and French j
editions, is progressing favourably; the year 1886 is completed and part of 1887. i
Nearly 10,000 new slips are being arranged alphabetically. This index, when ;
completed, will be of great help to students of history, as it will greatly f acilitate j
their work.
An index of Masson's "Les Bourgeois de la Compagnie du Nord-Ouest"
lias been completed.
The inventory of the documents relating to the Maritime Provinces is being j
continued.
Sixty-one volumes of the S. Series have been prepared for the bindery and
forty-one have been bound and placed on the shelves.

MAP AND CHART DIVISION
RESEARCH
One hundred and fifty-five searches were made during the year in the
interests of departments of the Federal and Provincial Governments and of
individuals. Many of these searches were for information on the location of
roads, on the construction of bridges and dams and on the boundaries of water
lots and harbours. Students conducting private research at the Archives continue
to make extensive use of maps, and whenever possible, to obtain photostat
copies or tracings. Many requests from schools for copies of maps to aid in the
teaching of history and geography were received. Students from schools of
Ottawa and district and from points as far east as Quebec and as far west as
North Bay visited the map room in classes, and received instruction on the
-value and uses of maps.
ACCESSIONS
In addition to the accessions listed below, the Archives received as a gift
from Sir R. Leicester Harmsworth for the Northcliffe Collection, a copy of The
Atlantic Neptune bearing the following title:—
" The Sea Coast of Nova Scotia ; Exhibiting The Diversities of
the Coast and Face of the Country near it: The Banks, Rocks,
Shoals, Soundings, Ec. Together with Remarks and Directions
for the conveniency of Navigation and Pilotage. Survey'd by
Order of The Right Honourable The Lords Commissioners of
the Admiralty, By Joseph Frederick Wallet Des Barres Esqr."
This is a special copy made up of thirty-six charts and illustrations published between the years 1775 and 1779, and is thirty inches long by thirteen
inches wide, one-half the width of the regular edition of the Atlantic Neptune.
Lt bears the book plate of Phillips Cosby, Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia, who
was born in Annapolis Royal and who, as Lieutenant of the Orford, served as
Naval Aide-de-Camp to General Wolfe at Quebec.
