October 1616

October. This month five planters in Bermudas, fearing, as they say, to die with famine, built a boat of about two tons, little bigger than a double wherry, and, provided with victuals, committed themselves to the mercy of the ocean, and safely arrived in England. Great fears for the success of that plantation. Is hopeless of any profit from thence. [DOMESTIC Corresp. Jac. I., Vol. XC., No. 24, Cal, pp. 425–6.]
