30. I know that, but the precedent was his expedition
and the earliest slaves... err indentured servants, came to the new world in the next generation.

They came first to Virginia, and then to Massachusetts Bay. The difference is less than a decade, and it really does not matter. BOTH the Northern Colonies and the Southern Colonies were part of the Virginia grant, which later was divided. Hell, William Penn (and the Pilgrims) negotiated with the Virginia Company for land grants.

In fact, these indentured servants established a long term attitude versus labor in the United States. One that survives to this day... labor is less than, and if you are poor, you are morally corrupt and lascivious.
