European Exploration Proposal
My name is Owen Buckenmaier, and I present to you, King Philip the 3rd, my plan for traveling to the Americas. I will leave in the year 1556 and will return with news in the year 1560. While I have yet to discover many riches to indulge myself in, I have made a generous idea to give most of those riches to you.
I will look for as much gold as my crew and I may carry onboard with us, as well as silver. This will make your country far richer than Spain and France. Along that line, If I shall run into explorers from those two country's, I shall cooperate with them to find gold and silver. Later, we will betray them and take the riches for ourselves.
If I happen to run into natives I will also work together with them to get food and information. Then, during the night we will surprise attack them with our weapons.
My crew and I will need the following-
- 4 boats
- approximately 50 pounds of food
- 50 guns and 3 cannons
- 339 wooden planks
If you let me go on this expedition, you will not regret it!
