We voyage for the Glory of God, the advancement of the Christian faith, and the honor of our King and country. We will start the first colony in the Northern parts of Virginia. We, whether we like it or not, agree and combine into a civil government, for the better organization and perserverance of the colony. We agree to have fair laws, ordinances, acts, consitutuions, and people in office, for the better of the colony. For this, we promise to submit and obey.
