Excerpt from History of the Society of Jesus in North America, Vol. 1: Colonial and Federal
This was rather a wide undertaking for that brilliant writer; and his performance did not carry it into execution. He treated of the French, and left out the Spanish and English Jesuits in North America. We, for our part, could not pretend to adopt so compre hensive a term. We feel that our title, like our subject, must needs be circumscribed, to distinguish it and exclude from it Spanish and French North America. This we have attempted to do with the aid of two adjectives, Colonial and Federal, which imply a double stage of history, as before and after the American Revolution, and also include Canada from the time of its being ceded to England. The definition of our subject, by means of these two adjectives, connotes a line of history which was not common to New Spain or to New France.
