The following little work pretends to no higher character than that of an eye-witness's narrative, and boasts of nothing more valuable than its collection of facts. Whatever reflections the author may have suffered to escape him can be thrown aside by the mind that relishes them not-the history will remain the same.
It is needless to detail to our readers the spirit of a system so well known as that of the Jesuits, or to remind them that, such as it has been, its success in bringing Heathen nations within the pale of Christianity and of civilization has been equal to that which has been effected by any other. The reductions of Paraguay are well known to all, as one of the most extraordinary instances of success in the conversion of heathens to Christianity ever obtained since the early ages of the Church. The early missions undertaken in the country of which the following pages treat, have been likewise considered to prove what may be effected by perseverance and self-denial, even against almost insur-mountable obstacles.
