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.
