Francis Drake



England sent Francis Drake to the Pacific with the Golden Hind, the finest galleon of that year 1579. Among other things Drake sought to find the reputed Northwest passage through the American continent, but deciding this was a myth he went ashore in a small bay and made a treaty with the native chief. There he took possession of this land of nova Albion on by means of inscribing a brass plate fitted with the coin bearing the coat of arms of England. But Drake sailed away in the claim went by default. Then the Padres came in missions were built in the land was California. But the English pilgrims came and settled on the Atlantic spreading westward and in another 200 years they came to California through the back door and so again the land was Anglo-Saxon.
