Marais, Philippe
Faus(s)e Riviere, (Louisiana)

to (William) Duparc, Commandant
Pointe Coupee, (Louisiana)

Marais, a merchant, appeared before Duparc and stated that on the 24th, wishing to consult with the pastor Father (Paul) de Saint Pierre, went to the priest's home. He asked the negro servant girl if her master was home. He received only invectives in reply and when he went up on the gallery this woman pointed a gun at him. Mr. Beaudrau saw this from his house. Later when Marais met Saint Pierre on the street he wished to state his complaints but received annoying replies. Marais asks Duparc to have the slave appear and also his witness, Mr. Beaudrau.
