Old Church Tower
Jamestown Virginia (VA), Divided Back unused

Description:
Just above the wharf at Jamestown, in the midst of sycamore trees and a dense growth of vines, is all that remains of "the first church in America." No traces of the structure are to be found except the old, English-made brick tower - a most interesting study, bearing evidence of having been used as a watch-tower. The constant crumbling of the earth along the shore threatens the stability of this picturesque landmark.

Title:
Landing at Jamestown in 1607
Jamestown Virginia (VA), Divided Back unused

Description:
The Colonists, in their ships were driven between the Virginia Capes by a violent storm in April 1607. They named these capes "Henry" and "Charles," after the sons of their King. A party landed at Cape Henry on April 26th, but were driven back to their boats by the Indians; as they approached the western shore of Chesapeake Bay the storm had spent its force, and they called the place Point Comfort. The ships then entered and sailed up the river, stopping at Hampton, and here and there looking for a good site for a colony, finally selecting a low peninsula, half buried in the tide at high water. Here they landed on May 13th, 1607, and gave the place the name of Jamestown, and the river then known as Powhatan the name of James River, in honor of the King, James I of Great Britain. The instructions of the King and the laws for the government of the colony were placed in a sealed casket with orders that it not be opened until they landed for settlement

Arrival of Lord Delaware at Jamestown
Title:
Arrival of Lord Delaware at Jamestown
Jamestown Virginia (VA), Divided Back unused

Description:
John Smith having been terribly wounded by the accidental explosion of a bag of gunpowder while asleep in his boat, it became necessary to take him to England for treatment, and he did not return. After his departure the colony went from bad to worse, and terrible suffering and disaster ensued. In six months it was reduced from nearly five hundred to sixty, and is referred to as "the starving time." On June 7th, 1610, the entire party was crowded into two small bargees, the "Deliverance" and "Patience," built from the wreck of the "Sea Venture" at Bermuda, in which Sir Thomas Gates and the survivors of that disaster had arrived a day or two before, and Jamestown was completely abandoned. Dropping down the James River on their way out to sea, they met Lord Delaware, whose ships, laden with colonists and an abundance of provisions, were just entering Virginia waters. Feeling that the hand of God had stayed their departure, they all returned to Jamestown, and thus in three days the Virginia colony had perished and come to life again. Lord Delaware landed on Sunday, June 10th, 1610, and under his wise and strong administration the colony was re-established, flourished and became permanent

Title:
Jamestown In 1607

Description:
The English on landing pitched tents, but in the pleasant May weather soon found it more agreeable to lodge “Under bows of trees” until the log cabins they at once proceeded to build were ready for occupancy. An “old rotten Tent” was the first church in the American wilderness. The next step was to stretch an awning between the trunks of tree,s to nail a bar between two of these to serve as a reading desk, and here “the religious and courageous divine, Mr. Hunt” read the service morning and evening, preached twice on Sunday, and celebrated the Holy Communion at intervals of three months. When Lord Delaware came in 1610 (card no. 8) he fond at Jamestown a church 24 by 60 feet, the first permanent religious edifice erected by Englishmen in america, and the one in which Pocahontas was baptized and later married to John Rolfe. (Cards Nos. 9 and 10.) Subsequent suffering from malaria and the “burning fevers that destroyed them” would indicate that the location was most unsuitable and unwisely selected. (See cards Nos. 1 to 19.)
