monopoly of fifteen years was granted, with full ownership of the entire
valley of the St. Lawrence, in return for which the Company was to take
out three hundred colonists every year up to 1643. No serious effort was
made to carry out this obligation, although the Company continued to
enjoy its monopoly until 1663. =Index=: (Bishop Laval era) Resigns its charter, 41;
