"The next morning Cartier, in a sumptuous attire, with twenty-five of his men, went in procession to see the Town of Hochelaga (now Montreal), when within a short distance of it they were met by a Sachem, who saluted Cartier with great courtesy, and shewed signs of hearty welcome. In return for this civility, he presented the Chief with two hatchets and some knives, and also hung round his neck a cross, which he desired him to kiss, &c."--Smith's History of Canada.
