St. Sebastian, one of the first Christian martyrs in Spain, was seized by the Moors, fastened to a tree, and shot to death with arrows. The legend states that on the departure of the murderers, an angel descended from Heaven, extracted the arrows, and resuscitated the Saint. This capital work was sent from Paris by the Abbe du Jardin to his brother also an Abbot at Quebec, where the present possessor obtained it. [P. 8.]
