Excerpt from Sketch of the Norse Discovery of America, at the Festival of the Scandinavian Societies Assembled May 18, 1891, in Boston: On the Occasion of Presenting a Testimonial to Eben Norton Horsford, in Recognition of the Finding of the Landfall of Leif Erikson, the Site of His Vineland Home and of the Ancient Norse City of Norumbega, in Massachusetts, in the 43d Degree
The Saga relates that, after a temporary stay on the Island of the Land fall, they went on board and sailed through a bay, or across a bay (as from Cape Cod to the Gurnet), that lay between the Island and a ness that jutted out northeastward from the mainland - (as the great promontory lying between Plymouth Bay and Boston Harbor - i. E. From the Gurnet Krossaness - to N ant-asket). They steered the ship westward past the ness (as from the Gurnet past Cohasset into Boston Harbor).
