Hi mom! How are you doing? I miss you and the family! Today Alena and I were passengers on the Mayflower! You can’t believe how many storms we have had! The last one was really bad.
The waves were so big, the waves took Alena overboard. I lost it when she was overboard. I fell on my knees and started crying and crying. Just then when I thought she was gone, the sailors jumped into action! One sailor got a rope and another sailor got her out of the sea. I am so glad she came back! One time a man got swept over board! Lucky for him because there was a rope by him and, he pulled his self up!
One day a storm was coming and the sailors send Alena, me and all the other pilgrims down below deck! It was very cramp below deck! Luckily Alena and I got a little place in the corner out of the cold and damp. Some had to stay in the ships small work boat. Also the food they are giving us, it is very dry and nasty! I got sick just eating that food. Even though this trip is getting hard, I know every thing will be okay!

Hi mom! Someone just said, “Lands Ahead!” We did not believe him but then they said, “Land Ho!” so we went to the land! Alena and I were so happy! When we got there, we washed our clothes in a little lake. We made a settlement and it is nice. Maybe one day you can came one day and visit! Love,
