“We saw a very good piece of ground: and hard by it there was a Cliffe, that looked of the colour of a white greene, as though it were either Copper or Silver Myne: and I thinke it be one of them, by the trees that grow upon it. For they be all burned, and the other places are as greene as grasse; it is on that side of the river that is called Manna-hatta.” 

Henry Hudson, October 2, 1609.
