When Timothy Hatherly came to New Plymouth in the Anne in August 1623, he brought with him a letter to the people at Plymouth from some of his fellow Merchant Adventurers, in which they said:

"Let it not be grievous to you, that you have been instruments to break the ice for others who come after with less difficulty; the honor shall be yours to the world's end; we bear you always in our breasts and our heartly affection is towards you all, as are hearts of hundreds more which never saw your faces, who doubtless pray for your safety as their own, that the same God which hath so marvellously preserved you from seas, foes, and famine, will still prserve you from all future dangers, and make you honorable among men, and glorious in bliss to the last day."
