l our state, ranne from us to the Spaniards. On the 9 we departed from Yaguana. The 13 we landed on an Iland called Mona , whereon were 10 or 12 houses inhabited of the Spaniards; these we burned & took from them a Pinnesse, which they had dand; but they hid them in caves, hollow rockes, and bushes, so that we could not find them. On the 14 we departed from Mona , and the next day after wee came to an Iland called Saona, about 5 leagues distant from Mona , lying on the Southside of Mona , lying on the Southside of Hispaniola neere the East end: betweene these two Ilands we lay off and on 4 or 5 dayes, hoping to take some of the Domingo fleete doubling this Island, as a neerer way to Spaine then by Cape Tyburon, or by Cape S.

eceived our last and perfect directions by your letters, confirming the former instructions, and commandements delivered by your selfe at our leaving the river of Thames . And I thinke it a matter both unnecessary, for the manifest discoverie of the Countrey, as also for tediousnesse sake, to remember unto you the diurnall of our c enter into the River, and jurisdiction of Chawanook: There the River beginneth to straighten untill it come to Chawanook, and then groweth to be as narrow as the Thames betewene Westminster , and Lambeth . Betwene Muscamunge and Chawanook upon the left hand as wee passe thither, is a goodly high land, and there is a Towne whichat with oares it would scarse be navigable: it passeth with many creekes and turnings, and for the space of thirtie miles rowing, and more, it is as broad as the Thames betwixt Green-wich and the Isle of dogges, in some place more, and in some lesse: the current runneth as strong, being entred so high into the River, as at London

October.THE 16 of October we made land, but we knewe not what land it was, bearing in with the same land at that day: about sunne set we put into a harbour, where we found a Hulke of Dublin, and a pinnesse of Hampton riding, but we knew not as yet what place this was, neither had we any boate to goe ashore, untill the pinnesse sent off their boate to us with 6 or 8 men, of whom we understood wee were in Smerwick in the West parts of Ireland : they also relefell with the North side of the lands end, and were shut up the Severne, but the next day we doubled the same for Mounts Bay. The 5 the Governour landed in England at Martasew, neere Saint Michaels mount in Cornewall. The 8 we arrived at Hampton , where we understood that our consort the Admiral was come to Portsmouth , and had bene there three weekes before: and also that Ferdinando the Master with all his company were not onely come home without any purchase, but also in such weaknesse

But what was become of our Viceadmirall, our Pinnesse, and Prize, and two Frigates, in all this time, we were ignorant. The 3 of July we spent about rifling, romaging and fitting the Prize to be sailed with us. The 6 of July we saw Jamayca the which we left on our larboord, keeping Cuba in sight on our starboord. Upon the 8 of July we saw the Iland of Pinos, which lieth on the Southside of Cuba nigh unto the West end or Cape called Cape S. Anthony. And the same day we gave chase to a Frigat, but at night we lost sight of her, partly by the slow sayling of our Admirall, & lacke of the Moonelight our Pinnesse, whom Captaine Cooke had sent to the Cape the day before. On the 11 we came to Cape S. Anthony, where we found our consort the Moonelight and her Pinnesse abiding

For the holsomnesse thereof I neede to say but thus much: th

The Admirall put forth a flag of counsel, in which was determined that the whole fleete should go for the mayne, and spred themselves on the coasts of Spaine and Portugal , so farre as conveniently they might, for the surer meeting of the Spanish fleete in those parts. The 26. we came to Faial , where the Admiral with some other of the fleete ankred, othersome plyed up and downe betweene that and the Pico untill midnight, at which time the Antony shot off a piece and weyed, shewing his light: after whom the whole fleete stood to the East, the winde at Northeast by East.

The like groweth in Persia , which is in the selfe same climate as Virginia , of which very many of the Silke works that come from thence into Europe are made.
