Massasoit had been well treated, and no doubt would have liked to stay longer, but he had said he could stay only three days.
Massasoit was very importunate to have them remain longer with him.
Massasoit was so grateful for the kindness shown him that he told the palefaces of the Indian plot against them.
To the great surprise of Massasoit's men, there was an Indian with these palefaces.
As a sign of rank, Massasoit wore a string of bones and a bag of tobacco around his neck.
But before their plans were carried out Massasoit was taken sick.
Massasoit helped the feast along by sending some of his best hunters into the woods.
That neither Massasoit nor any of his people should do any hurt to any of the English.
To the memory of Massasoit, our first and best friend, and ally of the Natives.
Massasoit, chief of the Wampanoags, treaty with Plymouth, 138-139.
