Transcript of 4.06 Worlds Collide

March 12, 1607

We have almost reached North America. I am part of the expedition led by the English explorer John Smith. We were sent to establish another English colony. I hope we don't just "disappear" like the Roanoke colony. I noticed that some of the other men on this expedition are thinking the same thing. However were still sent to locate gold and silver. We were also instructed to to find a river route to the Pacific Ocean for trade with Asia. Hopefully we won't encounter some of the natives. After seeing miles and miles of sea water I will be happy when we reach land and can finally feel the hard ground under my feet. The salt smell of the water is getting tiring. September 2, 1607

We have made it to North America. This place is so different from Europe. Nothing though, is as different than the natives. In our short stay we have already met them.They look very different than anyone I have ever encountered. Their skin is much darker, they wear strange clothing and their weapons of bows and arrows seem primitive to our guns. However, they have given us good smelling and tasting food. But they have also killed many of our men and have attacked our fort. The smell of gunpowder and the cold feeling of a trigger is becoming more frequent. Our colony is growing and thriving even though we have failed to find gold. May 14, 1617

It has now been ten years since we have established Jamestown in North America. Though many of the original explorers who first came ten years ago have died, Jamestown is still prospering. It is hard to believe that a couple of years ago we were forced to eat our dogs and horses which surprisingly tasted pretty good, like chicken. Instead of finding gold and silver, we have grown tobacco. We never did find a river that leads to Asia. However, the Virginia Company is still pleased. I have finally gotten used to the strange scenery and the unusual natives. I am very happy to report that the English colony of Jamestown did not just "disappear".
