The Jamestown Parson

"A clergyman of persevering fortitude and modest worth."
Description of Rev. Robert Hunt, chaplain of the Jamestown Colony in 1607, and first English clergyman in America.

Captain John Smith's obervation of Hunt's skills as a peacemaker and comforter:
"Our factions were oft qualified, our wants and greatest extremities so comforted that they seemed easy in comparison to what we endured after his death."
