Abstract:

Journal of Rev. Francis Higginson, kept from 25 April - 25 June 1629. The journal describes Higginson's voyage from London to Salem, Mass., which he titled, "The true story of the voyage to New England." Higginson was part of the second expedition of the Company of the Massachusetts Bay in New England. Entries note weather conditions, and life aboard his ship (the Talbot), including a smallpox outbreak, and the death of his daughter, Mary, from the disease.

Also included are the names and descriptions of the five ships in Higginson's party: the Talbot, the George, the Lion's Whelp, the Three Sisters, and the Mayflower. The journal also contains a manuscript copy of Higginson's "Agreement with the New England Company, April 8, 1629," and a manuscript copy of the "The True Copie of the Agreement of Cambridge [England], August 26, 1629," in which several additional men, including John Winthrop, agree to take part in the Company's third expedition the following year.
