Duarte Augmented The Tribute By Adding 35,000 Xerephines To The Former 25,000[166], Which Could Not Be Paid When The City Was In A Flourishing Condition, And Yet 60,000 Were Now Demanded When It Lay In Ruins And Its Trade Was Destroyed.

[Footnote 166:

It was only called 20,000 a few lines before. - E.]

At this time Don Luis was sent with nine ships to the Red Sea. At Socotora he lost one of his ships. He took and burnt the town Zaer[167] on the coast of Arabia, because the sheikh refused to restore the goods of a Portuguese merchant or factor who had died there. At Veruma[168] he burned some ships, and then battered the city of Aden, after which he entered the Red Sea, where he did nothing worthy of notice, and returned to his brother at Ormuz, but was much dissatisfied with the conduct of Duarte at that place.

[Footnote 167: Perhaps Shahr near Makulla on the coast of Yemen. - E.]

[Footnote 168: This place was probably near Aden on the coast of Arabia. - E.]

That part of the continent of India adjoining to Goa, belonging to Adel Khan king of Visiapour, which had been seized by Ruy de Melo during the war with the king of Narsinga, was now lost by Francisco Pereyra Pestana. Pestana was a brave officer, and exerted himself to the utmost; but as Adel Khan had now no other object to employ his arms, his power was not to be resisted.
