He then, by his interpreter, let him know
that Sir Thomas Dale had sent him pieces of copper, strings of
white and blue beads, wooden combs, fish-hooks, and a pair of
knives, and would give him a grindstone, when he would send for
it ; that his brother Dale, hearing of the charms of his younger
daughter, desired that he would send her to Jamestown, as well
because he intended to marry her, as on account of the desire of
Pocahontas to see her, and he believed that there could be no bet-
ter bond of peace and friendship than such a union. While
Hamor was speaking, Powhatan repeatedly interrupted him, and
when he had ended, the old chief replied: "I gladly accept your
salute of love and peace which, while I live, I shall exactly keep.
His pledges thereof I receive with no less thanks, although they
are not so great as I have received before. But, for my daughter,
I have sold her within these few days to a great werowance, three
days journey from me, for two bushels of rawrenoke."
