Then said Leif to Thorvald, Thou shalt go with my ship, brother, if thou wilt, to Vinland. There has been much difference of opinion as to where Vinland was. Some think that it was Nantucket; others, the island of Conanicut in Narragansett Bay; and others, some place much farther north and east. See Costa's Pre-Columbian Discovery of North America, Anderson's Norsemen in America, Kohl's History of the Discovery of the East Coast of North America, published by the Maine Historical Society.

Book V: the French in Canada. (A. D. 1534-1536.) The extracts from Cartier's narratives are taken from an old translation, to be found in Hakluyt's Voyages (edition of 1810), vol. 3, pp. 250, 257, 259, 266-269, 271-274. A most interesting description of Cartier's adventures, including those here described, may be found in Parkman's Pioneers of France in the New World, p. 81. Another account of the same events, illustrated by the maps of the period, will also be found in Kohl's valuable History of the Discovery of the East Coast of North America (Maine Historical Society, 2d series, vol. I), p. 320. I.—Cartier's visit to Bay of Chaleur. [Jacques Cartier was born in 1494, at St. Malo, a principal port of Brittany, France.
