Re: The Henry Voyage

If this poem is keeping close to accuracy and not expanding the boundaries
of Plymouth Plantation in its poetic license,  it seems unlikely that it

crow flies, between Plymouth Harbor and Newport, but many many more miles to
sail there.  But perhaps you just added the poem for our enjoyment and not
to be taken literally.
