Mary of Plymouth
Mary of Plymouth, by James Otis,
Is a Christian Story.
It is a letter to her friend, Hannah, in
England.
Telling her about the settlement in
Plymouth. Mary went to the ‘New World’
When she was only six years old!
It tells about how she meets Indians, wolves,
And other pilgrims like her.
I really enjoyed this book.
