Excerpt from The Voyages and Explorations of Samuel De Champlain, 1604-1616, Vol. 1 of 2
The translation of that part of the 1632 edition of Champlain's Voyages here given (laverdiere, Voyages, 1632, I, pp. 1-309) was undertaken by my wife, who devoted herself assiduously to the task. As editor, I have gone over the text, carefully com paring it with the original for verification and occasional revision. That it is entirely free from misconceptions or mistakes can not be expected, nor will such expectations be entertained by any who have had empori ence in preparing translations. We have, however, made especial efforts to reduce such slips to the minimum.
