Letter from Robert Tindall to Prince Henry (June 22, 1607)

In this letter, dated June 22, 1607, colonist Robert Tindall writes to Prince Henry, King James‘s son and the patron of his voyage to Virginia, that they have safely arrived. Along with the letter, he says he includes a map of their exploration from Jamestown up the James River. This map has been lost; however if it existed, it would predate John Smith’s Map, making it the first map of Virginia.
