Semi-protected edit request on 15 January 2014[edit]

In "Birth and early life", there is a citation needed ("Hudson is thought [by whom?] to have spent many years at sea..."

The idea is discussed in Fatal Journey by Mancall on page 44: "Presumably Hudson had been involved with earlier ventures in exploration, because it is virtually impossible that an inexperienced sailor could have otherwise obtained the financing to captain such an expedition." (1607's expedition on the Hopewell). 184.174.142.47 (talk) 17:54, 15 January 2014 (UTC)
