The Night before the Massacre

The two Indians who had been formerly employed by the English to hunt for them happened to lie together the night before the massacre. They were inside an Englishman's house, where one of them was employed. The guest Indian persuaded the other to rise and kill his master, telling him that he would do the same to his own master the next day. That was when he learned the whole plot which was designed to be executed on the morrow. But the other, instead of murdering his master, got up (under the pretense of taking his friend's advice) and went to his master's chamber and revealed the whole story which had been told him about the planned massacre.  The master quickly arose and secured his own house and went to Jamestown to warn of the impending danger. Several persons escaped. Also, Captain Croshaw in his vessel at Potomac.  Source: The History of Virginia by Robert Beverley.
