Plate III. Leaving the River of May, the French Discover Two Other Rivers

A little afterwards they went on board again, hoisted anchors, and sailed farther on along the coast, until they entered a beautiful river, which the commander himself chose to explore in company with the chief of that vicinity and some of the Indians, and which he named the Seine because it was very like the River Seine in France. It is about fourteen leagues from the River of May. Returning to the ships, they sailed still farther north; but before going far, they discovered another fine river, and sent two boats to explore it. In it they discovered and island, whose chief was no less friendly than the others. This river they named the Aine. It is six miles from the Seine.
