Finding Land

I sailed west from Bristol on the Matthew in the hope of finding a route to Asia. On June 24, I sighted land and called it New-found-land.I believed it was Asia and claimed it for England.
  1. This land did not have the riches I had read about. This land was a total wilderness. Even though I didn't find the riches I hoped to find, I claimed parts of Asia for England.
