Additional Details:
The worthy captain having, thanks to Pocahontas, miraculously escaped death, as pictured and described on card No. 5, was required to remain with Powhatan to make “bells, beads and copper” for his tavorite child. It was a very curious fate for the hardy capaigner of many wars, to be buried in the virginia woods, the fashioner of toys for an Indian girl, and the soldier with his tanned face and sweeping mustache, shaping trinkets for the small slip of Virginia royalty, in her robe of feathers, white plumes and coral bracelets, presents an unusually interesting and attractive picture. Capt. Smith remained with powhatan for a year; they had sworn eternal friendship, and the King offered to adopt and give him a portion of his domain for a Dukedom, but in compliance with his repeatedly expressed desire to return to Jamestown, he was finally permitted to do so. (See cards 4, 5, 7 and 14.)
