The extracts relating to Henry Hudson are reprinted from a very valuable book, containing many original documents in regard to him, and entitled ‘Henry Hudson the Navigator. The original documents in which his career is recorded . . . with an Introduction by G. M. Asher, Ll.D.London, Hakluyt Society, 1859, pp. 77-93, 174-179, 117-123. The same narratives may be found in Purchas's Pilgrims, vol. III.

There is a Life of Henry Hudson by Henry R. Cleveland in Sparks's ‘American Biography,’ vol. x. Brodhead's ‘History of New York’ and O'Callaghan's ‘History of New Netherlands’ also contain much information concerning him.

To show the result of Hudson's discoveries, I give also a series of extracts from early Dutch chronicles, describing in quaint language the first founding of the New Netherlands. It is translated from Wassenaer's ‘Historie van Europa’ (Amsterdam, 1621-1632), and is taken from O'Callaghan's ‘Documentary History of the State of New York,’ vol. III. pp. 27-28, 42-44.
