THE PHOENIX
This mythical bird is the alchemical symbol of rebirth through fire. The phoenix, sometimes known as the fire bird, sets itself of fire every 100 years, dies in the flames, and then rises again from the ashes. In medieval legend, the phoenix lives in ARABIA but flies to EGYPT, the home of alchemy, to undergo it ritual death and regeneration. Here it cradles the all-powerful elements of fire and water under its wings.

La Tour d'Auvergne is the name of my FRENCH FAMILY, orginally from the village of LA TOUR in AUVERGNE, dating from the 10th century; it divided into several branches, including COUNTS OF AUVERGNE, DUKES OF BOUILLON and AL'BERT , and VISCOUNTS OF TURENNE, see BOUILLON and TURENNE. Madeleine de La Tour d'Auvergne(d. 1519) married Lorenzo de' Medici, DUKE OF URBINO; mother of QUEEN Catherine de Medicis, who married Henri II King of France.

There was one of these ACADIAN FAMILES, about whose PROTESTANT ANTECEDENTS there can be no question, and which was destined to take a prominent part in the history of the colony. Its founder was Claude de St. Etienne, sieur de La Tour. He is said to have been allied to the NOBLE HOUSE OF BOUILLON. About the year 1609 he came, a widower, with his son Charles de St. Etienne, sieur de La Tour, then a boy of 14, to PORT ROYAL, NOVA SCOTIA, CANADA, for purposes of trade, having lost the greater part of his estates in the CIVIL WARS.
