In this chapter Captain Smith’s powder bag sets fire, and his leg flesh is burned off. It happened when he was napping in a canoe, they were gentlemen and him were going to make peace with the tribes. Samual was suspicious when all the Gentlemen left with Captain Smith. I believe that the gentlemen attempted murder to Smith. There plan almost worked, but he was not killed but sent away, back to England.
The most important thing Reverend Hunt taught Samual, is to act out of love,not anger. That is important because Samual usually acts out of anger,beating down on people threw anger.
My reaction to the fire is a disappointment, that after the cabins caught ablaze, I knew not a lot would be saved to from the fire. When the food storage was in flames, I doubted if anything or anyone would survive the winter. I was thinking if they would talk to they Great Powhatan, they might get food from him. The palisade, probably meaned a lot to them, for they wanted to save it more than the cabins.
The language is a better weapon because it can make a better communication skill and will allow you to make trades and friend the Natives so they will not harm Samual.
Samual relationships changed from the beginning because he started to be kinder to Richard and James. He became closer to Captain Smith. They thought they made a good relationship with the Natives, but were sadly mistaken. He needs to make a better relationship with Richard and help him with his pain.
