Comming nigh the East shoare they cast about,
and stood to the West and came to an Iland,

Michael Perse killed two Fowle,
and heere they found good store of that Weede,
which we called Cockle-grasse in our wintering place,
whereof they gathered store, and came aboard againe.

that it was the Companies will,
that I should come up into the Masters Cabbin,
and take charge thereof.

nor meddle with the Masters Card, or Journals.
So up I came, and Henrie Greene gave me the Key of the Masters Chest,
and told me then, that he had laid the Masters best things together,
which hee would use himselfe when time did serve :
the bread was also delivered me by tale.
