Afterwards he adds: "Of these one hundred persons who came
over in the first ship together, the greatest half died in the
general mortality, and most of them in two or three months
time." Omitting these two hired sailors who returned, and
counting the person that died and the child that was born on
the passage as one passenger, we have the exact umber--one
hundred of the Pilgrim Company "who came over in the first
ship," and as fifty-one died the first season, this enumeration
makes good those other words of the historian, that "the
greater half died in the general mortality."
