At the moment of holding their first day of Public Worship in America, Sunday, January 21, 1621. The building in which they held their meetings was hastily put up, and called a common house. Nearly in the middle of the building stands the pastor, William Brewster, one hand raised to heaven, in the other a small Bible. . . . Opposite to the pastor, to the right of the picture, stands Captain Miles Standish, the soldier who fought many a battle afterward with the North-American Indians. On the left of the pastor the cradle is seen containing the infant Peregrine White, the first born in the New World, the mother of the child on one side of the cradle, Mrs. White, the husband, Mr. White, behind her. On the left of the picture is seen, sitting on a bed, John Carver, the first Governor of New-Plymouth, who was sick at the time, and died a few months afterward. Behind him lies William Bradford, also sick. . . . Behind the cradle is seen a young couple, Edward Winslow and his wife Elizabeth. The young woman in the middle of the picture, leaning with her arm on the lap of Mrs. White, is Miss Chaldon. She had the honor of being the first person who landed on the shores of North America. In the corner on the right of the picture sits the boy Francis Billington, playing with an ear of Indian corn. He was the lad that discovered the lake afterwards called Lake Billington. [P. 4.]
