Excerpt from New History of Texas for Schools: Also for General Reading and for Teachers Preparing Themselves for Examination

Robert, Cavalier de la Salle - This Robert, Cavalier de la Salle, was of a good French family, and had been carefully educated, as his parents intended him for the priesthood. However, being fond of adventure, and hear ing such wonderful stories of the New World, he aban doned the idea of becoming a priest, and went to Canada, where he engaged in fur-trading. He afterward decided to devote his energies to discovering a new route to China, and began by sailing down the Ohio River. He thought the Ohio emptied into the Pacific Ocean. But he discovered that the Mississippi, not the Ohio, was the great river of the continent. Continuing his journey, he arrived at the mouth of the Mississippi, April 19, 1682, one hundred and forty-one years after De Soto saw the great Father of Waters. La Salle took possession of all the lands on both sides of the river in the name of his king, Louis XIV., while his heart beat fast with the pure joy of patriotism as he looked upon all the beautiful country he was winning for his beloved France.
