Subsequently he resided in Paris, France, and contributed to the editorial columns of the "Journal." On his return to Canada he became editorially connected with "La Minerve," of Montreal, and also edited "l'Opinion Publique," a weekly, and was for a time one of the editors and directors of "La revue Canadienne." He became librarian to the department of public instruction of Quebec, and held the office of secretary of that department at the time of his death.
