1600?9. Considerations on a "proposition of planting an English colony in the North West of America." That if the Prince would assist it in part, Her Majesty's merchants go liberally into it, the country be stirred to furnish men, some gentlemen moved to be adventurers, and a worthy general chosen, qualified to judge by sight of the strength of places, "it might be a glorious action for our Prince and country, honorable for the general and adventurers, and in time profitable."
