1705  

The existence of the Coureurs des Bois is a perpetual state of idleness that leads them to all manner of disorderliness.  They sleep, smoke and drink alcohol- regardless of the cost- and they often corrupt the woman and daughters of the Natives.  They are totally independent and accountable to no one; they recognize no superior, judge, law or police, and they refuse to subordinate.

Denis Riverin this year wrote that the coureurs de boise were mostly young men, some from noble families, others the sons of habitants and a few of no discernible background at all.  It is estimated they number some five hundred in the interior.  They traveled usually in threes, carried a tarpaulin that served as a sail and as a tent.  Riverin said they reveled in dissolute living, sleeping, smoking, drinking brandy, gambling, and seducing the wives and daughters of the Indians.  Practically the whole New France colony conspired to protect the Coureurs de Bois from the law, and when they were haled before a judge, he refused to sentence them to prison or the gallows, but fined them and turned them loose to continue the trade that kept New France alive.
