Pilgrim Thanksgiving "God be Praised we had a Good Increase ... Our Harvest being gotten in" -Pilgrim Edward Winslow - American Minute with Bill Federer
Pilgrim Edward Winslow recorded in Mourt's Relation that in the Fall of 1621:
"God be praised we had a good increase ...
Our harvest being gotten in, our governor sent four men on fowling, that so we might after a special manner rejoice together after we had gathered the fruit of our labors.
They four in one day killed as much fowl as, with a little help beside, served the company almost a week.
