(10.)

And for that flaxe and hempe which wee haue fowed , it comes vp,
and wee hope will thriue exceedingly well; I end with the foile,
which is excellent, couered with ftore of large Strauberies, Rafpices,
Vines, Saffafras, Wall-nuts, Acornes and the like; and this in the
wildeft Woods too.

   The mould is blacke a foote deepe, and then comes after a red
Earth. All is high Wood , but in the Indian fields, which are fome
parcells of ground cleered for Corne. It abounds with good fprings,
which is our drinke: Of beafts; I haue feene Deere , Racounes, and
Squirills, befide which there are many others , which I haue not yet
feene. Of Birds diuerfly-feathered there are infinite; Eagles, Bit-
ternes, Herons, Swannes, Geese, Parteridge, Ducks, red, blew, partie
coloured Birds, and the like. By all which it appeareth , the Coun-
trie aboundeth , not onely with profit but with pleafure. And to fay
trueth , there wanteth nothing for the perfecting of this hopefull
plantation; but greater numbers of our countrey-men to enioy it.

                                            From St. Maries in
                                            Mary-land, 27. May,
                                                     1634.




                                                                       Wee
