Aspinet. A sachem of Nauset on C. Cod, Mass. He was known to the Plymouth colonists as early as 1621, and is noted chiefly for his unwavering friendship for the English. He kindly treated and re turned to his parents a white boy who had lost his way in the woods and was found by some of Aspinet s people. In the winter of 1622, when Thomas Yes-ton s men saw famine staring them in the face, and the Plymouth people were but little better off, Aspinet and his people came to their relief with corn and beans. It was his firm stand in favor of peace with the colonists, and his self-restraint when provoked almost beyond forbearance by Standish s hasty temper, that pre served the friendly relations of the surrounding Indians” with the Plymouth colony during its early years. He was, however, finally driven into the swamps by threats of attacks by the English, and died in his unhealthful hiding place probably in 1623. (C. T.)
