Join Captain Edward Brewster as he uncovers the mystery of the late governor’s missing supplies, which were intended for the benefit of his widow. In August 1618 Lord Delaware, having mysteriously died on his voyage from London, was buried at Jamestown. Before the governor’s death, he instructed Brewster to manage the servants and supplies that Delaware had been bringing to the colony. Brewster began to take inventory of the materials and workmen, but was met with resistance from the colony’s deputy governor, Samuel Argall. As Brewster begins to make further inquiries, he learns why some of the supplies are missing!
