Excerpt from book: the members of the colony prisoners, some of whom were taken to Jamestown, and the rest allowed to retire in a shallop, to look out for a vessel to take them to France. The Governor of Virginia approved of the conduct of Argal, and despatched three vessels,of which he took command,to destroy the French colonies in Acadia. At St. Crois and other places the buildings were demolished. Argal then sailed for Port Royal, where a similar scene was enacted, all compromise being refused to Biencourt, who fled to the forest, and lived with the Indians. In the following year, his father Poutrin- court arrived at Port Koyal, which he found a scene of desolation. He accordingly resolved to leave Acadia forever, which he did, returning to France, and fell fighting bravely in the service of his country at the seige of Mery-sur-Seine in the month of December, 1615. According to Champlain, Biencourt remained in Acadia till his death, which occurred in the year 1624. We cannot close this chapter without expressing admiration of the excellencies by which the work of Lescarbot is distinguished. The narrative is both interesting and truthful, and the modesty of the author is conspicuous in never introducing himself or his doings, giving credit for all that was accomplished to others in transactions in which, had he written the whole truth, he would have figured more prominently than any of his friends. There are also, throughout his work, evidences of scholarship, as well as flashes of quiet humour, and indications of unaffected piety, which leave, in i-lii.sini; liia book, a most favourable impression as to the author's harm-tor-and acquirements. chapter{Section 4CHAPTER III.
