Transcript July 25, 1768, we, vicar-general of Illinois, in virtue of the powers vested in us by monseigneur Briand, Bishop of Quebec, dated Mary 15, of the present year, granted dispensation from the three publications of bans of marriage in favor of the persons hereinafter named, to wit: Gabriel Cote, trader, of the post, son of Nicolas Cote and of Marie le Vasteur, residing at camouraka; and agathe Desjardins of this post. And, knowing no other impediment to the said marriage, we received their mutual consent and gave them the mutual benediction, according to the form prescribed by our mother the holy church, to ratify and validate the consent the aforesaid parties had already given one another on August 17, 1765, in the presence of several persons and in the church, promising, as they could not do otherwise owing to there being no priest, to take advantage of the arrival of the first one, to have their marriage validated and thus legitimize a child born February 28, 1767, which they did this day in the presence of Mr. Catine sargt. And Pierre Chaboiller, friends of the husband; and of Sieur Jaques Giasson and Dme. Therese Campion wife of Pierre Ignace DuBois, friends of the wife, all of whom, except the wife, signed these presents first duly read.
GIBAULT, Vicar-general.
