First Sentence

"WHAT parts of the American coasts that adventurous Icelander, Bjarne Herjulfson, saw cannot be determined with certainty,'' says that learned antiquarian, Professor R. B. Anderson, "but from the circumstances of the voyage, the course of the winds, the direction of the currents, and the presumed distance between each sight of land, there is reason to believe that the first land that Bjarne saw in the year 986 was the present Nantucket; the second, Nova Scotia; and the third, Newfoundland.
