Here the seigniories of Longueuil, Boucherville, Yarennes, Verchres, and Contrecoeur were already begun. From the fort of Sorel one could visit the military seigniories along the Richelieu or descend towards Quebec, passing on the way those of Lussaudire, Becancour, Lobinire, and others still in a shapeless infancy.
