While we cannot know exactly what answer you're looking for without the precise excerpt, generally speaking, the Hakluyts did not emphasize the difficulties of surviving in the New World. They were writing to point out the benefits of settlement. They claimed that the New World could be an outlet for undesirable people in England, even if some of them had to be forced (sentenced) to go there. They were writing to encourage settlement, and were not interested in playing up its challenges. Beyond discussions of diseases and hostile Indians, Hakluyt's description of the colonies, drawn mostly from the experiences of the Spanish and French colonizers, didn't focus on the hardships of settlement.
