Dear King Henry VIII,
I have been thinking about going to explore North America ever since I heard about how Coronado set foot there. I know you have a high demand for gold and food. I assure you that we can find both of those resources. Even if we find people they will be forced to change to our Christianity. I plan to leave in 1500. I think we should go in the middle of North America. That will be the best place to farm and find gold. Although Spain and France are looking for the same resources they are looking in the wrong places. If I run into anybody I will try to make ends meet but I will get anything want. The hardest part will be going on the rough water for that long period of time. I have lived in England all my life and hope that you fund my trip.
