1826 - 26th Child!

News
Quebec, March 25.
We understand that the wife of one Andre Ouellet dit Rochette, of the parish of Ste. Anne, (la Pocatiere) is on the point of giving her husband a twenty-sixth child; but the parish priest, always read to take his Dixme, claims, him, by right, as his own, and wishes to have him brought up under his paternal care. It is well known that the 26th of all farm produce is due to the Church. [Mercury]
