Re: Impatience Is Not A Virtue
I think Faith is confused and thinks you're denying that any Indians were at the feast where they could "after a more special manner rejoice together" that is today called the First Thanksgiving. The Letter-Winslow 1621 — MayflowerHistory.com you linked to says that Indians were there:

We exercised our arms, many of the Indians coming amongst us, and among the rest their greatest King Massasoit, with some ninety men, whom for three days we entertained and feasted, and they went out and killed five deer, which they brought to the plantation and bestowed on our governor, and upon the captain, and others.

So I didn't think you were telling Faith she was wrong, but she seemed to believe you were. I thought you were only pointing out that despite the First Thanksgiving that relations between the colonists and the Indians quickly deteriorated, much to their detriment.
