Excerpt from Cartier Sails the St. Lawrence

By logbooks we mean the original narratives which were written from Cartier's own records of his voyages. It is believed that parts of the original narratives were written by Cartier, and other parts by a person, unknown to us today, who based his text on Cartier's logbooks. To simplify matters, these narratives are referred to in our story as the logbooks of Cartier.

Like real detectives, modern historians have searched the European libraries, the town records, and the old secret papers of the kings for scraps of information which have contributed greatly to our understanding of these voyages. We are especially indebted to the research work of Dr. H. P. Biggar, a Canadian historian, who has written two books which we have used as source material through the courtesy of his publishers, the Public Archives of Canada. The first of these books is The Voyages of jacques Cartier, published with translations and notes; the sec ond, A Collection of Documents Relating to j'acques Cartier and the S iear de Roberval, from which we have gathered many of the facts in our chapter on the Portuguese spy, the King of France, and the Emperor of Spain.
