The discovery of what is called the Brewster Book adds to the confusion already existing concerning the date of the death of Elder Brewster. The entry there made by his son Jonathan makes it April 10, 1644. Bradford says he died, as has been usually quoted, about April 18, 1643, but the photographic copy of Bradford suggests that April 16th has been miscalled April 18th. The church records say April 16, 1644, and this must be considered the true date.
