October 4th, 1620

Hello again, diary. Tis' me again, Thankful. I forgot to tell you what Hannah looks like. She has black hair, as black as the crows at our old farm in Holland.

Oh, yes!!!!!!!! That reminds me!!!!! I told you I would tell you what it twas' that moved us to come here to this New World, so I will!!!!! Well, it started when the "Saints", which are the religious people who believe that a church is not in a building, but in their hearts. They where getting fed up with Holland's king and bishops forcing them to come to a giant church with all the big fancy things and making them do certain religious things they didn't believe in. So, the "Saints", as they call themselves started planning a trip to a new land far across the rolling green sea. My father and mammy heard about it and decided that, even though we be not Saints, but what they call "Strangers", we would do much better in this New World, because many a person be saying it was a beautiful place with the best farming land across the corners of the earth. Hannah is also a "Stranger". We still be Christians, but we do believe in a building for a church. My father looked into the promise of land, and reported back to us that merchants were investing so we could grow crops and fish for eels and cod, and bass and other things. So, here we are at the Mayflower!!!!!

Oh dear, I must be going now, I think Hannah be coming!!!!!! I shall show you to her!!!! I will tell you your history tomorrow, dear diary. Bye for now.

Love, Thankful


Hope ya'll enjoyed it!!!!

Love, Joy
