Août Bibliophile et collectionneur depuis de nombreuses années, Beaugrand publie le Catalogue de sa bibliothèque. Cette année-là, Beaugrand fait un voyage aux ÉtatsUnis et au Mexique, où il s'intéresse notamment à l'archéologie pré-colombienne. -L. Morin. 1885 Mars A 36 ans, Beaugrand est élu maire de Montréal ; réélu l'année suivante, il occupe ce poste jusqu'en février 1887. Il pratique une politique plutôt progressiste, parfois mal vue des conservateurs, notamment lors de l'épidémie de petite vérole de l'automne 1885, alors qu'il impose la vaccination obligatoire.

Le 5, longue lettre amicale à Fréchette, à qui Beaugrand confie que la perspective « de rentrer en France pour y reposer après mon départ pour l'Inconnu et le séjour du Grand Repos me cause plus qu'une vive satisfaction, presque un bonheur ». Il ajoute : « N'allez pas croire, n'est-ce pas, que c'est une lettre de morphinomane que vous recevez. ] J'use de la morphine pour ne pas étrangler, mais je n'en abuse jamais. » Le 6, dans son « Au revoir ! » 8.

Les versions du « Fantôme de l'avare » et du « Legs du missionnaire » données dans la présente édition jettent donc un nouvel éclairage sur la genèse de Jeanne la fileuse, tout comme « Liowata », où se trouve probablement la toute première mouture des pages inaugurales du futur roman. Comme texte de base pour ce dernier récit, je n'avais pas le choix, le texte de « Liowata » paru dans l'Echo du Canada de 1873 étant le seul connu. Il en va de même pour « Une légende du Nord Pacifique », dont la version française n'a paru qu'une fois, dans la Patrie de 1893, et pour « Les feux-follets », dont l'unique leçon disponible est le fascicule inédit que j'ai retrouvé.
