My trip started off with the 30 day voyage across the mighty Atlantic. Not knowing that I would be sent to the well established colony of Jamestown. I would be staying with the average family.

I didn't know that here they learn how to read from the bible.After a few months had past I began to note about the family's traditions and things they do. I began to see Mrs. Wise have more and more Quilting Bee parties. The Boys do more work around the shop. Also Mr.
