Envoys to the Massachusetts

Although the Pilgrims had frequently been told by their Indian allies that the Massachusetts were often threatening them, “yet we should go amongst them, partly to see the country, partly to make peace with them, and partly to procure their trucks [trading products, esp. furs].  For these ends the governors chose ten men fit for the purpose, and sent Tisquantum and two other savages to bring us to speech with the people, and interpret for us” to go in the shallop (Mourt’s Relation).
