CHAPTER XI.

Early English voyages of discovery to America.

Introduction.

Although we have already, in the Introduction to the Second Chapter of this Book, Vol.  III. p. 346. given some notices of the voyages of John and Sebastian Cabot to America in the service of Henry vii. and VIII. it appears proper on the present occasion to insert a full report of every thing that is now known of these early navigations:  As, although no immediate fruits were derived from these voyages, England by their means became second only to Spain in the discovery of America, and afterwards became second likewise in point of colonization in the New World.  The establishments of the several English colonies will be resumed in a subsequent division of our arrangement.
