Company Of The West Indies Compagnie Des Indes Occidentales
Chartered by Louis XIV, 1664, following the cancellation of the charter
of the Company of New France. Its field of operations was enormous,
covering the west coast of Africa, the east coast of South America from
the Amazon to the Orinoco, Canada, Acadia, and Newfoundland. The
Christianization of the native tribes was given as the principal object
of the Company, commerce being of only secondary importance. Despite its
many privileges, and the readiness with which its stock was subscribed,
it did not prosper, and by 1672 was hopelessly in debt. Three years
later its charter was revoked, so far as Canada was concerned. =Index=:
