John Smith in History of Drugs in America

John Smith (1580-1631) was an important leader of the Jamestown Colony, the first permanent English settlement in North America.

In 1617, Smith described Jamestown, a decade after its founding, as a town with "only five or six houses, the Church downe, the palisades broken, the Bridge in pieces, the Well of fresh water spoiled," but "the market-place, the streets, and all other spare places planted with Tobacco."
