Robert Juet's Journal: September 10th, 1609

Having remained at anchor in Raritan Bay since September 5th, d'Halve Maen weighs anchor at noon and continues working its way around Staten Island. d'Halve Maen has not yet reached the Hudson River; Juet's mention of "the River" likely refers to the Narrows, current site of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge.

The tenth, faire weather, wee rode still till twelue of the clocke. Then we weighed and went ouer, and found it shoald all the middle of the Riuer, for wee could finde but two fathoms and a halfe, and three fathomes for the space of a league; then wee came to three fathomes, and foure fathomes, and so to sueuen fathomes, and Anchored, and rode all night in soft Ozie ground. The banke is Sand.
