Here’s an interesting article found at about the Pilgrim’s first winter in Provincetown.

It tells how the Indians were very generous.

Excerpt: About 90 Indians arrived to share in the feast. That the Pilgrims numbered only about fifty must have given the Pilgrims some serious inward concern, but the Indians themselves showed their friendship and sincere intentions by contributing five deer as venison.
