Mayflower, Day by Day - Saturday, 3 April [1620]/21

3 Apr 2021 4:18 AM | Soule (Administrator)

At anchorage

The ship’s company busy with preparations for the return voyage, bringing ballast, wood, and water from the shore, etc., the ship having no lading for the return.

Many still sick; more on the ship than on shore.  This day Elizabeth (Barker) Winslow, wife of Edward Winslow, died on shore.  They had been married not quite three years.  Edward Winslow was still with the Indians as a hostage. 

Only Samoset and Squanto spent the night; Massasoit and his people (including their wives and children) camped about half a mile away.  The settlers kept watch all night, but the woods were silent.
