Smith shows this by continually making reference to ways of profiting from daily ...view middle of the document...

" Persuading any anyone John can to come to the New World it can be seen that he too expects to profit from these new settlers.Like John Smith, William Bradford also describes his take on the early settling of the New World with a persuasive motive. In Bradford's eyes, had not the Puritan Pilgrims been graced by God on their long and demanding exploration, all would have been in vain. Year after year Bradford keeps sight of the signs from God meant to help the pilgrims. Like when Squanto, the Indian, becomes "an instrument sent from God for their good." Or when he compares their journey to the Israelites exodus from Egypt. Clearly these religious references by Bradford are used to persuade his audience to see the purity of the Pilgrim's adventures in Plymouth.Although the motives of each writer are not clearly represented in both selections persuasion is used on the reader of the text to pull him/her to authors' causes. In conclusion, both writings: "A Description of New England" and Of Plymouth Plantation tone is used to influence the readers take on the Settling of the New World.
