are worst provided then we; having no huntsmen, they are reduced to famine.

better to see a company of Rogues perish, then see ourselves in danger to
perish by that scourg so cruell. Hearing that they have had knives and
hattchetts, the victualls of their poore children is taken away from them;

coursedest, unablest, the unfamous & cowarliest people that I have seene
amongst fower score nations that I have frequented. O yee poore people, you
shall have their booty, but you shall pay dearly for it! Every one cryes
out for hungar; the women become baren, and drie like wood. You men must
eate the cord, being you have no more strength to make use of the bow.
Children, you must die. ffrench, you called yourselves Gods of the earth,

Here comes a new family of these poore people dayly to us, halfe dead, for
they have but the skin & boans. How shall we have strength to make a hole
in the snow to lay us downe, seeing we have it not to hale our racketts
after us, nor to cutt a litle woad to make a fire to keepe us from the
rigour of the cold, which is extreame in those Countreyes in its season.
