Exploration Proposal

By Rahul Ramesh

I am Rahul Ramesh and I am here asking  you, the ruler of the magnificent country of France, King Henry ii to fund my trip. I would like to go to the new world in the name of France as other explorers go from other countries.

I am from Geneva, Switzerland, but I am asking France to help me travel to the New World.  I will bring back many riches and wealth opportunities. I will claim land in the name of France.

For a successful trip, I am asking you to let me borrow ships, a crew (botanist, translator, soldiers, navigator, and a zoologist), food, and supplies (rope, weapons, etc.). If everything goes alright, then I will leave on November 1, 1537.

I n return, when I get back, I will give you gold and wealth opportunities. The wealth opportunities include various foreign plants that will suffice as a cash crop for France. I will use the botanist to check if the plant is edible of is of any use. Addition wealth would include native spices. I will trade certain resources found in France to the natives for spices and herbs. The spices will sell well in Europe due to the fact that many countries buy spices from India. Also, not many other countries are looking for spices.

I know that present day France is looking for land and gold. Knowing that previous French explorers traded French furs for gold and spices. I will help map out land as the other explorers have done.

Other countries that are exploring the New World are Spain and England. If I don't travel to the New World along with them, the other countries would claim more land than France. Spain is mainly going to the New World in search of wealth from gold, silver, and gemstones. England is going to in search of new resources like maize and timber.

On my journey, I will most likely face conflicts with either the natives or the other European explorers. I will try my best to make peace with the natives. If I can’t, I will try not to bother them again. If I meet other Europeans, I will try to compromise with the problem. If they want to fight for the material, I will let them have it without fighting. The only time I will fight back is when I am fully confident that I will win without losing much resources.

I will probably also face problems with the wilderness. As I survey the land, I will guarantee that all of the men are armed with a weapon. During the night, I will assign shifts for my men to keep watch. In case of a storm or a blizzard, my crew and I will prepare a routine for every storm we know of. By practicing the danger routines, I will do my best to keep my crew safe.
