Welcome to day 7! This day gives us a glimpse as to what was important to the Pilgrims and Indians. Before they smoked those peace pipes on day 4, they agreed to terms of a treaty.
Can you guess how many items were on the treaty? If you guessed seven, you are correct. Curious as to what it said?
First, they wanted to insure that neither people would injure or hurt the other. Second, if they broke the first one then the offender would be punished.
Third, if either of their tools were taken away when they were working, they would be restored. Fourth, if someone else waged war unjustly against either of them then they would aid each other.
Fifth, everyone would be told and know of the conditions of peace. Sixth, when coming to or approaching each other they would put their respective weapons down. Lastly, in signing the peace treaty King James considered them as his friend and ally.
They abided by these conditions and lived in peace for as long as the signers were alive.
As we add the seventh verse to the Thanksgiving song it goes like this, "On the seventh day of Thanksgiving, we recount gratefully seven treaty terms, six game and fish, five trip attempts, four peace pipes, three days feasting, two Indians, and a Mayflower on the sea."
