tells the best story. Now, put up your hands if you agree.'
The pilgrims all held up their hands and cried out, ' Yes!'

IT was the age of chain armour and tournaments--of iron barons and barons' wars--of pilgrims and armed
pilgrimages--of forests and forest outlaws--when Henry III. reigned as King of England, and the feudal
system, though no longer rampant, was still full of life and energy; when Louis King of France, afterwards

is popularly supposed that a greater prosperity for individuals or nations can only come through a political
and social reconstruction. This cannot be true apart from the practice of the moral virtues in the individuals

the ruin of, a man or a nation that has become lax and decadent in the pursuit and practice of virtue.
The Pilgrims and Puritans, whose migration to the New World marks the beginning of permanent settlement
in New England, were children of the same age as the enterprising and adventurous pioneers of England in

spirit born of those times stirred within the English people.
This beautiful lake owes its name to Samuel de Champlain, the founder of Quebec. In 1609, long before the
Pilgrim Fathers landed at Plymouth, he joined a band of Huron and Algonquin warriors on an expedition
against their enemies, the Iroquois, since known as the Five Nations of New York. While gratifying his own
love of adventure, he expected to make important geographical discoveries.
After a grand war dance at the infant settlement of Quebec, the allies set out together.
