Geneva, Jug. iz. AVery odd Paflage has happen'd here to one of our antient Magiftraies. M. du Pan. His Sun, a little above iz Years- ot' Age, having plaid the Truant on the 26th of July laft, and dreading to be corrected fur it, went a League out of Town, to a Country Houfe of his Fatheis's in the Teriitoiys of Savoy, where he was ften by feme of his Father's Servants, but at lift hid himfelf, and after lpytering about for two Days, went to Tho « Jion, and was carry'd by nobody knows who, into the liarnabite Convent there, where the K of Sicily lodges. His Majefty order'd him to fee taken care ot, and the Priefts tampering with the Boy, made hiin change his Name. A Citizen of Geneva being there at the tim and bearing that M. du Pan had iolt his Son, he enqui- red after this Boy, and tho he was deny'd, he font word to his Father, who difpatch'd a Friend with Letters of Recommendation to fome of the Courtiers, that his Son njight be reftorecl. The Gentleman was allow'd to fee the Youth, in Prefence of the Marq. de Coudre, and the Kino of Sicily's Almoner. He advis'd the Boy to return to his Father, and they feem'd to join with him in. it,' but the Priefts had by great Promifes corrupted the Lad, and told him what he ihould fay, fo thai he refus'd to return. The Gentleman having acquainted his Father with it, he went to the King himfelf, but was infoim'd on his Way, that his Son was that Morning by 5 a- Clock, fent to Turin. He diilembl'd his knowledge of it, and pleaded with the King, that his Child might be reftored to him. His Maiefty anfwer'd, That be could not inCoufc\ ence grant it, fmce the Child had declared his Mind, That he would he a Catbolick, a id added, That he mould take cms of him. The poor Gsntiemm reply'd, That his Son fas not of Age to cvuf e his Rsligicn, and hegg'd of the K'vg, with Tears in his Eyes, That, as he was a Patent himfclr, he would conjiier what JjjliHion it muft he to a Father thus to loft his Child. But neither the Gentleman's Teirs nor his Reafons could prevail. This is fuch an Inftance of Prieftcraft and Tyranny, that ' tis hoped the Proteftant Powers will refenr it, and fee that the Gentlsmin have Juftice done him, efpecially fines out Migillrates whin the Children both of French and Savoyards have come hither and declared, that they did it to turn Protejlants, they always fent ' em back to their Parents.
