Je, François LeMercier, prêtre de la Compagnie de Jésus, agissant comme vicaire paroissien, ai baptisé avec cérémonies un enfant, fils de Jacques Menard et de Catherine Foretier, ses parents, né le 6 juin 1664. Les parrains furent Monsieur Maurice Paulin et Marie Boucher, épouse d'Etienne Lafond. Je l'ai appelé Maurice, le 7 du même mois et de la même année.

English:
I, François LeMercier, priest of the Society of Jesus, acting as parochial vicar, baptized with ceremonies an infant, son of Jacques Menard and Catherine Foretier, his parents, born on 6 June 1664. Sponsors were Monsieur Maurice Paulin and Marie Boucher, wife of Etienne Lafond. I named him Maurice, on the seventh day of the same month and year.

The above was translated by Fr. John L. Sullivan. He noted:" The text is a copy in modern handwriting of the original in the archives of la paroisse de l'Immaculée-Conception de Trois-Rivières. I will be so bold as to correct one or two Latin errors no doubt made by the transcriber, not by Father LeMercier!"
