A YANKEE IN CANADA.

 

 

"New England is by some affirmed to be an island, bounded on the north with the River Canada (so called from Monsieur Cane)."—Josselyn's Rareties.

And still older, in Thomas Morton's "New English Canaan," published in 1632, it is said, on page 97, "From this Lake [Erocoise] Northwards is derived the famous River of Canada, so named, of Monsier de Cane, a French Lord, who first planted a Colony of French in America."
