The wemen are very cleanly in making their bread and prepareing meat. I found they account after death to goe into an other world pointing eastward to the Element, and when they saw vs at prayer they observed vs with great silence and respect, especially those to whome I had imparted the meaning of our reverence.

make vs authors of his holy will in converting them to our true Christian faith by his owne inspireing grace and knowledge of his deity.
