Mostly for my own reference.

Find url for this:
"When Native American Women First Met Europeans"

Well, all I've found now is this link at Zotero

which leads to


which is unpopulated at the moment.

Those of us with teaching instincts, have the fun of an argument with the excuse of illustrating some general fallacies or principles or such (our patron saint being C. S. Lewis). I was attempting that with my posts about General Semantics around Thanksgiving, but it came out ragged, as I'm rusty on the terminology and didn't like the terms I could find. As well as too lazy to try to revise it to coherency. Very suprised that a couple of people did admit understanding it.(Neither of them USians, hm.)

My Thanksgiving history research, disorganized as it is, starts athttp://houseboatonstyx.livejournal.com/180868.html , with links in a Comment to past Thanksgiving entries, which probably have links to previous years.
Has links to "what really happened" and other papers

From a letter from Plymouth Colony leader Edward Winslow, 1621

We set last spring some twenty acres of Indian corn, and sowed some six acres of barley and peas; and according to the manner of the Indians, we manured our ground with herrings, or rather shads
God be praised, we had a good increase of Indian corn [In 2011 we just call it 'corn'.]
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. [ Including turkeys ]
many of the Indians coming among us, and among the rest their greatest king, Massasoit, with some ninety men, whom for three days we entertained and feasted; and they went out and killed five deer, which they brought to the plantation, and bestowed on our governor [This Indian king wearing, presumably, formal headdress for a three-day feast ]
by the goodness of God
We have found the Indians very faithful in their covenant of peace with us, very loving, and ready to pleasure us. We often go to them, and they come to us.
Yea, it has pleased God
We entertain them familiarly in our houses, and they as friendly bestowing their venison on us. They are a people without any religion or knowledge of any God, yet very trusty, quick of apprehension, ripe-witted, just.
But God provided better for us
by the blessing of God. . . .

When it pleased God
by the blessing of God

E. W.

-- Plymouth Colony leader Edward Winslow, 1621

Though the term 'thanksgiving' does not appear in this letter, from the frequent references to God in the letter, He was likely mentioned at the feast as well. ;-)
