Evan Sullivan's Exploration Proposal
We must expand our reign to the New World! I am the primary one to do your exploration for goods, gold, and GLORY!
It is the year 1523, A.D.
Dearest Majesty, Charles I. I am from this very country, in all of its beauty and glory, Spain. I understand that you are looking for gold, power, land, and natural resources. On my expedition, I plan to find those resources in their abundance. Also, I hope to find different foods, new cultures, novelties, natives for information, more room to expand, and natural resources. I chose those resources to search out because they are very valuable and they could give us more knowledge about the world around us.
I understand that France and England are also in the area, looking for gold, power, land, and GLORY! If they happen to interfere, I would prefer to talk about it, make deals, and keep it discreet, but I am prepared to fight if need be.
I am going to stay on the east coast, because that is where we will most likely land, and it is a good area to find the resources we are searching for.
I expect to encounter sickness, long trips, rebellion, hostile natives, and rival countries. I will handle the other countries, hostile natives, and mutiny by trying to talk or make deals, but, again, I am prepared to fight if I need to. The other things I will fight by keeping good morale, supplies, and energy.
I ask that you please keep me in mind as you select your explorers! Thank you very much for your time, Your Majesty.
