I Propose to Explore for France
Haasita will benefit your lives in France
Bonjour your Majesty, I am from the country of France.
I come to France to ask for funding to go to the New World in order to keep our countries standing and to get resources that we might need.
Francis I is the leader of France during 1515 to 1547, the time period in which I selected to leave France to North America.
We are in the need for furs. When I reach the land I will make sure this will happen and I will bring back furs for all of us.
As for me, I would take what I brought back and maybe gold. I will think of both our countries and give back to you as much you funded me. I would also maybe learn their culture and live with my family there to how we want to with resources we need and religions we believe in.
The only reason I might get gold is for trading purposes. If I need something someone else has, then I can trade because gold is something everyone wants. The furs will also be very useful for my family. Especially for the young ones to be warm during the winter or colder weather of autumn.
I will travel to the coastal plains region. There are a couple of reasons why. First of all it is the only way we can get to the land. Going through the Gulf of Mexico or directly on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean will lead us to the region directly. Another reason is because this region has animals that we can hunt and eat. Then, living near the ocean makes it easier when more people from France come.
Your majesty we also have competition. Others from Spain, France, Portugal, and England have also been exploring North America. So if you fund me now we will gain at least part of the land. We will take what we need out of the land we conquer and take advantage. Perhaps we will even take more than we need so we can make it last.
Your Majesty, some of the resources that the other European explorers are looking for are gold, copper, or other resources for trade and also because they are very valuable. Other countries are also coming for religious reasons. When they come to the new world they are free to believe in any religion. Some people came for spices like cinnamon, pepper, and ginger.
I will try to be fair with them and try to communicate. I will trade if the land I achieve does not have the resource. I will also try to keep the wars and fighting to a minimum because we will have piece.
If you ask me about how I will overcome obstacles, my majesty then I have many reasons. I expect that I will have problems such as poor navigational tools, disease, enemies stalling us from conquering land, and at one point, a lack of supplies.
