In This Country of Ours, we are reading about the Indians and Jamestown colony.
They discovered that the Indians smoked tobacco. The people in England wanted it. Sir Walter Raleigh brought it back to England.
The colonists grew it and sold it to England.
King James thought tobacco was a thing from the pit of hell. He said it will make your brain hurt and make your lungs bad.
They didn’t care what he thought they kept smoking it.
I agree with the King.
Do you agree with the king?
