Scope and Contents This collection includes a June 8, 1839 letter written by Pastor Peter Chabert and sent from Vincennes, Indiana to Ferdinand Bernhard at St. Marie, Jasper County, Illinois. In the letter Chabert requests assistance in obtaining a new horse to travel to St. Marie and mentions that "our good Bishop" is rather worse. This is most likely in reference to Simon Bruté, the first bishop of the Diocese of Vincennes, Ind., who passed away on June 26, 1839.
