What is now Block Island was named , after Louisa of Savoie, the king's mother.Here then, in connection with Verrazano and his discoveries we find the first two, of a long series of names, in different languages, applied to this noble river.The waters received the names of the clans hunting on their shores.The red people had no doubt names of their own for some of the streams in which they fished, but it is probable that these were applied to certain reaches only of the rivers most familiar to them.The recently-discovered ruins in Arizona and New Mexico, "whose memorial has perished with them," were not found at the mouth of the Colorado or the Gila, but clinging to the cliffs in gloomy caƱons.Thus much we seem to see dimly through the mists which hang over the unwritten past.Verrazano, in his letters to King Francis, had a great deal to say about the shores, the wild people, the forests, the fruits, the flowers; he declared that he had explored 700 leagues of coast, moving from a southern latitude northward, but strange to say, the "River of the Steep Hills" is the only stream he mentions.

Lawrence, the Hudson, the Delaware, the James, the Ashley and the Cooper.In the spring months of the year of grace, 1524, the good ship Dolphin, or more accurately, the Dauphine——under French colors, and commanded by John da Verrazano, the Florentine, came sailing northward along the mysterious coast of the new continent.After coasting the sandy shores, noting the wild people with their dark complexions, thin, scanty garments of dressed skins and feathers, the grand old forests, the vines, the flowers, Verrazano came at length to a hilly region: "A very pleasant situation among small, prominent hills——through which a very large river, deep at its mouth, forced its way to the sea; from the sea to the estuary of the river any ship, heavily laden, might pass with the help of the tide, which rises eight feet.Of these only one, the Hudson, recalls, the discoverer.Strictly speaking, however, Hendrick Hudson, as the reader will remember, could not claim the full honors of a discoverer.

In the spring months of the year of grace, 1524, the good ship Dolphin, or more accurately, the Dauphine——under French colors, and commanded by John da Verrazano, the Florentine, came sailing northward along the mysterious coast of the new continent.

After coasting the sandy shores, noting the wild people with their dark complexions, thin, scanty garments of dressed skins and feathers, the grand old forests, the vines, the flowers, Verrazano came at length to a hilly region: "A very pleasant situation among small, prominent hills——through which a very large river, deep at its mouth, forced its way to the sea; from the sea to the estuary of the river any ship, heavily laden, might pass with the help of the tide, which rises eight feet.

Of these only one, the Hudson, recalls, the discoverer.

Strictly speaking, however, Hendrick Hudson, as the reader will remember, could not claim the full honors of a discoverer.

THE vast streams of this Western Continent flowed over a nameless course during that mysterious past whose secrets we would so gladly unveil.
