My friend Walter Raleigh has left me in charge of the new settlement. We have made a living of our supplies. I fear our supplies will run short and we will have nothing by winter. I say this because everyone is already using a lot.
We are almost out of supplies so, I will be heading back to England to fetch some more supplies and I will be back before it gets too cold. I have made it to England and got the supplies but, because of the war between Spain and England I can not make it back in time.
It has been three years since I left and we are about to dock at the island. I hope nothing happened while I was gone. Everyone has disappeared since I left and all I could find was the word CROATOAN carved in a gatepost. It is starting to storm so I must leave.
