I hear rumors going around that speak of a wondrous place called, "The New World." I know it does sound far-fetched but if you, my majesty King Henry III, shall loan me enough money I will find this place however long it takes. Helping me go eastward to this place will be the best decision of your life.
I plan to go on June 15, 1569. And I shall try to find this place and find minerals such as gold and silver, resources such as wood and stone, and while there I will try to find and farm types of crops for money. If I cannot find this place, I will find a route to the land western of us without having to travel by land.
Why these resources? Well, I will tell you. The gold and silver for riches that could last you a lifetime. The resources for simple stuff like houses and tools, etc. The crops will be sold or traded for more riches. An like I said the route to the western land is so we don't have to travel on foot and have many casualties.
There will certainly be some obstacles on the way. I will find a way to overcome them. First, I will try to find a good place to set up a settlement so there is not any sickness. If there is sickness on the boat I will kill the people with the sickness. For competing countries such as England or Spain, I will find a defendable area for protection and try to make a treaty with them for now. One more obstacle, savages. I have heard there are people that live in this New World. We will at first trade with them, but if they become a nuisance we will take their lives, or make them our slaves and make them become Catholics.
So please help me go this new place. Helping me will be the best decision you have ever made.
