VIII. pp. 85-93. Waymouth's narrative is taken from ‘A True Relation of the most Prosperous Voyage made this Present Year, 1605, by Captain George Waymouth, in the discovery of the land of Virginia, where he discovered, sixty miles up, a most excellent river, together with a most fertile land. Written by James Rosier, a gentleman employed in the voyage.’ Reprinted in the same volume of the Massachusetts Historical Collections, pp. 135-156.
