Sunday, July 14, 1776
The militia assembled at noon. The reading of our charges.
All officers commissioned by agent Carleton last summer, whom we discharged for the reasons that we will give below.
We have indicated that, although absent, the name Bazil Dubé, commissioned by rebels, aided and assisted them as much as he could, stirred for the people, enlisted them for the Congress’s service, ridiculed and threatened royalist s & c. He also inspected the signal fires in all the parishes up to Rimousky.
We have indicated that Bonenfant, the son, (very impertinent and insolent) served the rebels most willingly as an assistant-major, appointed by the said Bazil Dubé. However, a short time later, he returned his commission at the solicitation of his wife and father.
We cashiered the above-mentioned Capt. François Gagnon who, in his said rank, willingly had all the rebels’ orders carried out. Last winter, he wrote the rebels that he and his officers were able to serve and that there was no need to appoint new ones. He called assemblies to recruit people for the rebels’ service. He also personally disarmed Jean Boucher after the March 25 episode.
We have discharged his subordinate officers for having executed his orders in their respective rank. Nevertheless, from our information we recognize the assistant-major, Pierre Boucher, as a good and faithful subject of the government who gave proof of this on all occasions. He was one of the first men to march to Mr. Beaujeu’s party and, by his example and advice, enjoined his brother’s and a few others to join him. But after this good conduct, he had the weakness of commanding the execution of corvées and the maintenance of [signal] fires, by the orders of a rebel captain.
Names of those who enlisted with the rebels for pay this winter:
Furthermore, this spring Bazil Dubé enlisted 15 or 20 young men to help with navigation.
Last fall, Pierre Bérubé, Jean Levesque’s two children (the said Jean Levesque being present), and Pierre Plourdre struck the assistant-major, Pierre Boucher, as he left Mass. Boucher served in the role of bodyguard for le sieur St Aubin, the notary. [Boucher was assaulted] for publicly reading an order from General Carleton.
Last fall, some habitants of this parish stood guard on the Pointe for the same reasons that the neighboring parishes did.
As in other parishes, the signal fires were built and tended on Bazil Dubé’s orders.
Names of those who have marched under Mr. Beaujeau’s command this winter:
Left for Kamouraska at 5:00 PM.
