At anchor, Cape Cod harbour
Third Sunday here. Master Jones notified the passengers in no uncertain terms that they must find a permanent location and that he must and would keep sufficient supplies for his ship’s company and their return voyage. It is not clear how the ship’s and the colonists’ provisions were divided and held. It is difficult, however, to understand how the Master “must and would” retain provisions with his small force against the larger, if it came to an issue of strength between Jones and Standish.
