Robert Juet's Journal: September 13th, 1609

d'Halve Maen continues four miles upriver in the morning, then sets anchor to wait out the ebb tide. While waiting, they trade for oysters with the local Lenape. Once the tide turns to the flood again in the afternoon, they sail another eight miles or so before anchoring for the night, most likely at the southern end of Haverstraw Bay. The "high point of Land" Juet sees is the highlands beyond what is now Tarrytown.

The thirteenth, faire weather, the wind Northerly. At seuen of the clocke in the morning, as the floud came we weighed, and turned foure miles into the Riuer. The tide being done wee anchored. Then there came foure Canoes aboord: but suffered none of them to come into our ship. They brought great store of very good Oysters aboord, which wee bought for trifles. In the night I set the variation of the Compasse, and found it to be 13.degrees. In the after-noone we weighed, and turned in with the floud, two leagues and a halfe further, and anchored all night, and had fiue fathoms soft Ozie ground, and had an high point of Land, which shewed out to vs, bearing North by East seuen leagues off vs.
