The second Chamberlain letter, this one June 22, 1616, mentioning Governor Dale's arrival in London with the "most remarquable" Pocahontas.
The worst of thatt plantation is past, for our men are well victualled by there owne industrie, but yet no profit is retourned." Smith, John.
Letter of June 20, 1616: "Sir Thomas Dale retourned frome Virginia; he hathe brought divers men and women of thatt countrye to be educated here, and one Rollfe, who maried a daughter of Pohetan, (the barbarous prince,) called Pocahuntas, hathe brought his wife withe him into England.
(Richmond: Virginia State Library Press, 1957, with introduction by A. Rowse.) (New York: Da Capo Press, 1971.) Hamor, Secretary of the Virginia colony, recounts in detail Captain Argall's capture of Pocahontas, her marriage to Rolfe, and includes the three 1614 letters of Dale, Rolfe, and Whitaker, cited above, as appendices. Powhatan treats the captive Smith with "kindness," and he is sent back to Jamestown without incident. Chapter 9: "How this Christian came to the land of Florida, and who he was: and what conference he had with the Governor." . [Virginia history] [Electronic Version] Symonds, William. is a collection of narratives by colonists compiled by Symonds, an English minister who wrote an important justification document for the Virginia Company, and describes Smith's captivity for a third time without the rescue by Pocahontas: instead, Smith "procured his owne liberty." But this work does mention that Powhatan sends Pocahontas to seek freedom for Indian prisoners (which Smith grants for her "sake only"), and there is refutation of the claim that Smith would make himself king by marrying Pocahontas. 43-59, 93-95.) Written by Smith in Virginia, this document contains the first appearance of Pocahontas in the historical record but no mention of the rescue.

[Thanks to Kathryn Sampeck for pointing out one of the original Portuguese versions at (1557)] [Pocahontas-like] [Electronic Version] Smith, John. Pocahontas appears here only in one sentence exemplifying Indian language that translates as: "Bid Pokahontas bring hither two little Baskets, and I will giue her white beads to make a chaine." [Virginia history] [Electronic Version] Strachey, William. Here in his history of Virginia (not published until Major's edition) he memorably describes Pocahontas as an 11-12 year-old cartwheeling "little wanton," now married to Kocoum, whose right name was Amonute -- but there is no mention of connection with Smith, who had left Virginia by this time. If this letter is genuine, it contains the first description of "the" rescue, though there is no indication it was publicly known in 1616. In it, we learn that Pocahontas (now described as "a child of twelve or thirteen years of age" when he knew her) not only rescued Smith more than once but was instrumental in saving the entire colony from starvation.
