Lescarbot's claims that the conversion of Native Americans to Christianity was underway belied the reality that very little missionary work seemed to occur in Acadia during the time when de Poutrincourt and the Calvinist or Calvinist sympathizer de Monts held the royal patent for Port Royal, the first settlement in New France. King Henri IV (a former Calvinist turned Catholic) became concerned, and put pressure on de Poutrincourt who, in 1610, asked a secular priest, Messire Fléché, to come help out in New France. Increasingly frustrated, the King sent two Jesuit priests, Pierre Biard and Ennemond Massé, to Port Royal on June 12, 1611. A letter written by Father Biard on January 31, 1612, to the Reverend Father Provincial in Paris is presented.
