Of the discovery of the Pennsylvanian regions.
Although, after the successful expeditions of Columbus and Americus, many colonies had arisen in this Western World, such as Nova Hispania, Nova Gallia, Brasilia, Peru, Golden Castilia, Hispaniola, Cumana, Jamaica, Nova Anglia, Florida, Virginia, etc., it so happened, anno 1665 [!], by means of the skilful and enterprising navigators sent out under the auspices of Caroli Stuardus I., King of England, a new and large country was discovered, lying far beyond the above-mentioned colonies.
For the time being, however, no name was given to it, inasmuch as the natives roamed about the forests, not having any fixed residences or towns from which any name could have been derived; but they lived here and the

An army of 1,200 men (one-half Indians) was raised, and proceeded in two divisions to the attack.
The governor,. with the main division, went by sea to. blockade the harbor, and the remainder, under Colonel Daniels, proceeded along the coast.
The latter arrived first and plundered the town, the Spaniards retiring within their fortress with provisions for four months. Their position was impreg– nable, for the Carolinians had no artillery.
Daniels went to Jamaica to procure battering cannon, but before his return two Spanish war-vessels appeared.
Governor Moore raised the blockade and fled.
This expedition burdened the colonywith a debt of more than $26,000, for the payment of which bills of credit were issued —the first emission of paper money in ;South Carolina.
