My Exploration Proposal
Dear King Louis XIV of France, I wish for you to finance my trip to the New World!
I am Flimtonce McKosher, the most qualified person to get the resources you want.
I am from Dublin, Ireland.
I plan to leave in the year of 1650, in the month of July.
The resources I will search for:
King Louis XIV, I will search for these resources in the New World as well as land for settlements.
- Fish for Cod, - Plant Sugar Plantations, - Coal, - Lead, - and Tin.
I will also search for gold in hope of becoming wealthy, but the majority will go to you and France.
Where Will I Go:
I plan to go to the Coastal Plain Region in order to fish and plant the sugar plantations. I will also go to the Appalachian Highlands in order to mine the coal, led, tin, and gold.
The other countries that are sending explorers are England, Spain, Portugal, and the Dutch Republic.
The other explorers are looking for these resources:
Juan Ponce de Leon- He is looking for gold and the Fountain of Youth, I will get the gold first though.
Christopher Columbus- He is looking for Places to settle and land to claim, though I am much more clever and will find the best places to settle first..
Jacques Cartier- He is looking for a route to India and the Spice Islands.
When I go to the New World I expect to encounter some obstacles:
- I expect that we could possibly have a dehydration issue in the New World. So, I will have us always settle and camp near a river or some type of water source. I will also make sure that we have plenty of wood to start a fire so we can boil the water.
- I also think that we could have a hunger issue. I will make sure that we have the proper hunting tools on this trip, and if we are already by a water source then some animals will be near because it could be their water source as well.
On the expedition I expect to encounter conflict with either the Native Americans or the other European Explorers:
- When I go to the New World I do not want to have war, so if I come upon Native Americans I will try to reason with them and if they do not cooperate, then I will resort to violence and maybe even take some of them to work on my Sugar Plantations.
- If I come across other Europeans then I will hold them captive and take their resources for the good of France, and if they have any land I will make the land property of France.
King Louis XIV of France,
Finance my trip to the New World and you will become the richest person in the world!
