Newport's Assistant: Could you state your hope that this might be the beginning of the great work of converting the Naturals? That this idea came to you in no way through any carnal affection, but for the good of the plantation, for the honor of your country? And your own soul, humiliated, saving an unbelieving creature and moving you and your general assembly to a new generation?
John Rolfe: [Thinking] And yet she does not touch me.
Newport's Assistant: If this be not your true intent, would you do that?
John Rolfe: Yes.
