District de Quebec.

JUSTICE DE LA PAIX.

GEORGE PLANTE,  .   .   .   . Dénonciateur.
c
PIERRE MARCOUX,  .   .   .   .  Accusé
L'accusé en soutenant son exception peremptoire ayant offert de produire dans un delai raisonnable la Chartre ou concession de la Compagnie de Hudson pour constater les limites entre ladite Compagnie et la Province de Québec, quoique le Dénonciateur doive prouver les d. limites et ne l'a pas fait, ou s'il veut lui même produire ladite Chartre ou Concession plus promptement, a supplié la cour de lui donner acte sur le registre de l'offre de produire ladite Chartre ou concession. Et comme l'accusé a offert ladite preuve avant Jugement sur l'exception, il conclud à ce qu'il lui en soit donné acte sur le registre et se reserve de se pourvoir à cet égard.

District of Quebec.
SESSIONS OF THE PEACE.

GEORGE PLANTE  .  .  .  .  .  .  . Informant
vs.
PIERRE MARCOUX  .  .  .  .  Accused.

The accused, in the support of his peremptory exception, having offered to produce, within a reasonable time the charter or deed of concession of the Hudson's Bay Company in order to ascertain the boundaries between the said company and the Province of Quebec, although the onus of proving the said boundaries rests with the Informant and the latter has failed to prove the same, or is free to produce the said charter himself at an earlier date, prays the Court that he be given act in the records of the offer to produce the said charter or concession. And, whereas the accused has offered to submit the said evidence prior to the ruling on the exception, moves that he be given act thereof in the records and reserves unto himself the right to enter an appeal to that end.
Quebec, 11 September, 1788.

A. PANET

Attorney for the accused.
