§ 5. Edward Winslow.

The other book, which appeared in 1624 with the title Good News from New England, was by Edward Winslow, one of the leading colonists. They are both short accounts of the daily doings of the men who planted the first permanent New England colony; and they are comparable in style and scope to Smith’s True Relation, and to any of the other early narrations of Virginia or Mary-land. They were written to inform friends in England of the progress of the Pilgrim settlements.   13
