1624. The story of this first winter of the settlers, strangers upon this most inhospitable coast, overcome by sickiness and exposure, is pathetic- ally told by Bradford. Within two or three months one-half of their com- pany died, it being the depth of winter and they wanting houses and other comforts. They were attacked by scurvy and other diseases, caused by their long voyage and poor condition, so that there died sometimes two or three in a day. In the time of their greatest distress there were but six or seven sound persons to wait upon the others and perform the necessarj- duties for the sick. The seamen on the vessel fared almost as badly, so that the Mayflower was detained several months from returning. To add to their distress, the house which had been built as a general rendezvous and for the common use, and to which many of their goods had been re- moved, was accidentally burned on the 14th January, and increased their troubles. Edward Dotey unquestionably bore his part in the sufferings of this try- ing season, but his young and rugged constitution carried him safely through, and the spring found him working with his master in the fields or upon the houses which It was found necessary to erect and which were at first used largely in common by the settlers. The first direct allusion to him that we find in the records at this time is not a complimentary one. But it must be borne in mind that these, the records of the police court of the time, exaggerate the importance of these peccadilloes of the young. It is under the date of 1G21, June 18, that we find this item in " A Chron- ological History of New England," by Thomas Prince, M. A., a jounial carefully compiled from Bradford's History and the various records of towns and churches, and published about 1712. "The second offence is the first duel fought in New England, upon a challenge of single combat with sword and dagger between Edward Doty and Edward Leister, servants of Mr. Hopkins, both being wounded, the one in the hand, the other in the thigh, they are adjudged by the whole company to have their head and feet tied together, and so to be for twenty-four hours, without meat or drink ; which is begun to be inflicted, but within an hour, because of their great pains, at their own and their master's humble request, upon promise of better carriage, they are released by the Governor."
