Question and answer
Q: What differences do you notice between the following passage and contemporary prose? In these hard and difficulte beginnings they found some discontents and murmurings arise amongst some, and
mutinous speeches and carriages in other; but they were soone quelled and overcome by the wisdome, patience, and just and equall carrage of things by the Gov(erno)r and better part, which clave faithfully togeather in the maine. But that which was most sadd and lamentable was, that in 2 or 3 moneths time halfe of their company dyed, espetialy in Jan: and February, being the depth of winter, and wanting houses and other comforts: being infected with the scurvie and other diseases, which this long voiage and their inacomodate condition had brought upon them; so as ther dyed some times 2 or 3 of a day . . . ; that of 100 and odd persons, scarce 50 remained. And of these in the time of most distres, ther was but 6 or 7 sound persons, who, to their great comendations be it spoken, spared no pains, night nor day, but with abundance of toil and hazard of their owne health, fetched them woode, made their beads, washed their lothsome cloaths, cloathed and uncloathed them . . . all this willingly and cherfully, without any grudging in the least, strewing herin their true love unto their friends and bretheren.
