proof of the most Christian devotedness, as well as the most patriotic sentiments, form the religious establishment of these islands. For a long time past, English missionaries have settled in the Society Islands; and it is principally owing to their efforts, which preceded those of our own missionaries, that a more advanced state of civilization exists in this archipelago, when compared with the other parts of Polynesia. The good they have already done, and which they may yet do, entitles them to the protection of the French Government; they shall fully enjoy it. On our part, we are happy to believe that French influence will find in these foreign missionaries devoted auxiliaries in the work of civilization which is to be accomplished. Among the items which the grant is to provide for are two iron steam-vessels, which are indispensable to facilitate the intercourse between our settlements and the ports on the coasts of America. We have likewise included the expenses for the building and purchase of houses for the Governor, the building of hospitals, and for the furniture for the public offices; this last item, of a novel kind, is called for by the situation of our settlements, particularly the Marquesas, which are too little advanced in civilization, not to render it indispensable to take thither the most common articles of civilized life. The extraordinary credit which we demand of you amounts to the sum of 5,987,000 francs; but we should remark that this sum consists in great part of the expenses of a first establishment, which are not of a nature to recur. Taking into account the permanent expenses only, we estimate the annual appropriation will not exceed 2,800,000 francs. We have thought that these expenses will be taken into consideration with reference to the importance of the object we have in view, and to the difficulties which always exist in the execution of an enterprise of this nature. The object for which we claim your support, Gentlemen, interests in a high degree, the maritime influence of France. Bearing in mind these considerations, you will adopt the projet de loi which the King has directed us to lay before you, and which, we have no doubt, corresponds with the feelings of patriotism which you entertain for the interests of our country.
