d'Halve Maen enters what is today known as the Upper New York Harbor, and the crew instantly recognizes its value as a port. Local Lenape row out to the ship to present gifts to their European visitors. Captain Hudson and his crew accept these gifts, yet remain wary of another potential attack.

The eleuenth, was faire and very hot weather. At one of the clocke in the after-noone, wee weighed and went into the Riuer, the wind at South South-west, little winde. Our soundings were seuen, sixe, fiue, sixe, seuen, eight, nine, ten, twelue, thirteene, and fourteene fathomes. Then it shoald againe, and came to fiue fathomes. Then wee Anchored, and saw that it was a very good Harbour for all windes, and rode all night. The people of the Countrey came aboord of vs, making shew of loue, and gaue vs Tobacco and Indian Wheat and departed for that night; but we durst not trust them.
