...Observe the ordinances set down
THE INSTRUCTIONS

Here you can read the Instructions. Become familiar with them, for they will guide you as you decide where to locate your colony, what kind of work needs to be done, who will do it, and how you interact with the native people. To begin, locate these important passages in the Instructions. Use your Authentic Language Sheet to decode their meaning:

...find out a safe port in the entrance of some navigable river, making choice of such a one as runneth farthest into the land...

When you have made choice of the river on which you mean to settle, be not hasty in landing your victuals and munitions; but first let Captain Newport discover how far that river may be found navigable...

...choose your place so far up as a bark of fifty tuns will float, then you may lay all your provisions ashore with ease...

...you must in no case suffer any of the native people of the country to inhabit between you and the sea coast...

...you shall do well to divide your six score men into three parts...

...your first work must be your storehouse for victuals; the other you may imploy in preparing your ground and sowing your corn and roots; the other ten of these forty you must leave as centinel at the haven's mouth.
