500 |a Contains reprint of original t.p.: A relation or iournall of the beginning and proceedings of the English plantation setled at Plimoth. London: Printed for Iohn Bellamie, 1622. Usually cited as "Mourt's relation" on account of the signature G. Mourt, found at the end of the address to the reader, though it is clear that he did no more than commend the work to the public. There is a general agreement among authorities that "G. Mourt" was George Morton, an early associate of the Pilgrims who rejoined them at Plymouth in 1623. 
500 |a The main part of the narrative was probably written by William Bradford and Edward Winslow. G. Mourt (George Morton?) by whose name the relation is commonly known, seems to have had no other connection with it than that of writing the preface and giving the book to the press. cf. Young, A. Chronicles of the Pilgrim fathers, Boston, 1841, p. [109]-249.
