Lord James the First, I would like to visit a land of riches full of jewels. If I help, England will dominate and rise to World Empire. England will also financially rise because you are in the need of power and money. The reason that I would like to go there as fast as I can is because rumor has it that Spain and France are going to go to the New World. Much as I would like to go soon, I understand that you must build ships if you decide to let me go. The year that I must go by is 1603, because it is 1602, and I cannot go past that year. France and Spain are also looking for the same natural resources as England is so that is another reason I would like to go faster. I would also like 3 ships. I, Claire, explorer from Germany will also help spread religion.
If I found riches, our economic industry would boost up and England can be known for being rich. I picked the coast of eastern North America because I think it would be easier to park the ships there. There are also many natives on the lands so I can ask for help in exchange for goods and services.
I am going to try to look for minerals like gold, diamond, ruby, and emerald. Your spouse, Queen Anne of Denmark, will enjoy these gifts too. Not only will this benefit you and the country, it will benefit be me also. I currently have a middle-class job. It will help me live better than I currently do.
I will become allies with the natives and I will trade resources so my country and crew members can survive. If they don’t want to barter with us then we will find a tribe/country that they hate and we will agree to help fight them off if the time comes.
I think that I will encounter starvation because the food will rot, so therefore I will pack mostly dry food. I probably will encounter sickness so I will bring medical doctors with me on my trip. If the natives choose to not trust us, we will bring weapons just in case but we will do no harm to them only if they leave us alone.
