Friday, May 28, 1999

Below is a copy of one page from Thomas Harriot’s A Briefe and True Report of the New Found Land of Virginia, published in England in 1590 by Theodore de Bry. Read it, then translate the text into modern English (include the title). John White, a member of the first Roanoke colony and the governor of the second, drew the picture. This image is a scan of page 61 from the facsimile edition published in 1972 by Dover Publications, Inc.
