Whitaker. Good newes from Virginia. 1613
Alexander Whitaker's sermon entitled "Good Newes from Virginia," which was printed in London in 1613. Prior to the sermon were communications
regarding Virginia and Jamestown, which were addressed to the Rt. Hon. Lord President of Wales. Of note, Alexander Whitaker (1585-1616) was a Christian
theologian who settled in North America in Virginia Colony in 1611 and established two churches near the Jamestown colony. He was known as "The Apostle of
Virginia" by contemporaries. Unlike other religious ministers, he was more tolerate of the Native Americans, as evidenced in this sermon; in fact,
he baptized Pocahontas. In addition, the sermon encouraged the people of England to support the colony. (Digitized from a microfilm copy of title
originally held by the Henry E. Huntington Library in San Marino, California).
