Are we there yet?

Winslow (in Mourt’s Relation) writes that “We set out about midnight, the tide then serving for us; we supposing it to be nearer than it is, thought to be there the next morning betimes:  but it proved well near twenty leagues from New Plymouth.  We came into the bottom of the bay [which we now know as Boston Harbour], but being late we anchored and lay in the shallop, not having seen any of the people.”
