Chronicles of Canada Volume 02 - Mariner of St. Malo: A Chronicle of the Voyages of Jacques Cartier

by Stephen Leacock

Jacques Cartier grew up as a sailor, married well and became an agent of exploration for King Francis I of France. In April, 1534, he sailed for the New World. Before sailing, his men took an oath that they would “behave themselves truly and faithfully in the service of the Most Christian King.” Jacques’ name was made immortal by the faithfulness with which he and his men carried out that oath.
