No New And Relevant Item Of Fact Discovered, However Trivial In Itself, Has Failed Of Mention, If It Might Serve To Correct, To Better Interpret, Or To Amplify The Scanty Though Priceless Records Left Us, Of Conditions, Circumstances, And Events Which Have Meant So Much To The World.

As properly antecedent to the story of the voyage of the MAY-FLOWER as told by her putative "Log,

" Albeit written up long after her boned lay bleaching on some unknown shore, some pertinent account has been given of the ship herself and of her "consort," the SPEEDWELL; of the difficulties attendant on securing them; of the preparations for the voyage; of the Merchant Adventurers who had large share in sending them to sea; of their officers and crews; of their passengers and lading; of the troubles that assailed before they had "shaken off the land," and of the final consolidation of the passengers and lading of both ships upon the MAY-FLOWER, for the belated ocean passage. The wholly negative results of careful search render it altogether probable that the original journal or "Log" of the MAY-FLOWER (a misnomer lately applied by the British press, and unhappily continued in that of the United States, to the recovered original manuscript of Bradford's "History of Plimoth Plantation "), if such journal ever existed, is now hopelessly lost.

So far as known, no previous effort has been made to bring together in the consecutive relation of such a journal, duly attested and in their entirety, the ascertained daily happenings of that destiny-freighted voyage.
