9781333507183: Louisiana and the Fair: An Exposition of the World, Its People and Their Achievements (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Louisiana and the Fair: An Exposition of the World, Its People and Their Achievements
Isolated and unprotected, the Jesuit missionaries were forced by circumstances to co-operate with the exploring expeditions, but it was to exert their religious in uence with the men, and in so doing they prevented, to a great extent at least, abandonment to vices which the free dom of a wild life encourages. It is, accordingly, no less interesting than instructive to observe how the two primary purposes, commercial and religious, came to atfil iate in the reclamation of America, and to note the results which attended the conjunction of these generally opposed forces. We must conclude that each was essential to the other, and that the credit which we give to the explorers for opening the country to settlement must be fairly divided with the missionaries, to whose devout services we are no less indebted for development of the country and the bless ings which have resulted therefrom.
