Robert Juet's Journal: September 9th, 1609

d'Halve Maen remains anchored at Raritan Bay. Operating under the belief that any Lenape who come out to the ship may be from the same hostile group that has just killed John Coleman, they rebuff any overt attempts to trade, suspecting treachery. They attempt to take three Lenape men hostage, but one of them leaps overboard.

The remaining two captives will remain on board for nearly a week. This kidnapping will eventually lead to a significant battle on October 2nd, 1609, as d'Halve Maen returns downriver and past everyone they've already encountered (for good or ill).

The ninth, faire weather. In the morning, two great Canoes came aboord full of men; the one with their Bowes and Arrowes, and the other in shew of buying of kniues to betray vs; but we perceiued their intent. Wee tooke two of them to haue kept them, and put red Coates on them, and would not suffer the other to come neere vs. So they went on Land, and two other came aboord in a Canoe: we tooke the one and let the other goe; but he which wee had taken, got vp and leapt ouer-boord. Then we weighed and went off into the chanell of the Riuer, and Anchored there all night.
