American History
1.14 The Great River

When Hudson reached Chesapeake bay, the weather was stormy. Hence he sailed northward. In 1609 he entered a beautiful bay formed by a noble river which he called "The Great River." There is a long narrow island on the eastern side of the river which was called Manhattan island.

The river has hardly any current. In the absence of fresh water from the hill, the channel would be filled with sea water and so make a kind of salt water. After testing the salinity of the stream, Hudson concluded at last he found a passage which would lead him through from the Atlantic to Pacific.

At first he drifted along, carried by the tide under the shadow of a great natural wall of rock, is called the Palisades. It is from 400 to 600 feet high. It extends for nearly twenty miles along the western shore of the river. He came to the Highlands where the river breaks through great forest covered hills. At the end of the fifth day he reached a place on the eastern bank, the Manhattan Island. At present it is called Hudson, after his name.
