Excerpt from History of the New Netherlands, Province of New York, and State of New York, Vol. 1 of 2: To the Adoption of the Federal ConstitutionThe territory claimed by the Dutch, and by them called the New Netherlands, extended, in the first instance, from Cape Cod to Delaware Bay on the Atlantic, including the islands of the sea coast: the river St. Lawrence seems to have bounded it on the north: on the south, some undefined line beyond Delaware Bay; and west, it was boundless. But for the purpose I have in view, at present, which is to lay before my readers all that I know respecting the inhabitants of this territory when our Dutch ancestors first visited it, I must bound the New Netherlands to the west by a line drawn from the upper part of Lake Erie to the Ohio River. I shall have hereafter to speak of other lines and boundaries, when we are called to consider the conflicting claims of the various nations of Europe. That such claims, and the heterogeneous and hostile colonies resulting from them, should ever have combined to form one great nation, such as we now see in the United States of America, is what most make the most unthinking seriously ponder on the future.In the year 1497, (five years after Columbus discovered, San Salvador,) Gabotti, or Cabot, saw the island of Newfoundland, which the Northmen had already discovered long before, and called Vinland.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
