the Journal of John Wesley
"Fri,6,- About eight in the morning I first set my foot on American ground. It was a small uninhabited island,... over against Tybee, called by the English Peeper Island. Mr. Oglethrope led us through the moorish land on the shore to a rising ground,... we chose an open place surrounded with Myrtles, Bays, and Cedars, which sheltered us both from sun and wind, and called our little flock together to prayers."
