Save Money On Flights

We Accordingly Clothed Two Of The Lads In Shirts And Coloured Coats, With Red Caps, Putting A Copper Chain Round Each Of Their Necks, With Which They Seemed Much Pleased, And Remained Willingly Along With Us, Giving Their Old Garments To The Rest Who Went Back To The Land.

We gave to each of the three who returned, a hatchet and some knives, with which they seemed well content.

When these had told their companions on shore what had happened in the ship, six canoes came off to us in the afternoon, having five or six men in each, who came to take farewell of the two lads we had detained, and brought them some fish. They spoke a great deal that we did not understand, making signs that they would not remove our cross.

The weather becoming fair next day, the 25th July, we left that port[35], and after getting out of the river, we sailed to the E.N.E. the land forming a semicircular bay, the extremities lying S.E. and N.W. From Monday the 27th of the month, we went along this land, till on Wednesday the 29th we came to another cape, after which the land turned to the east for about 15 leagues, and then turned to the north. We sounded about three leagues from this cape, and had ground at 24 fathoms. The land on this part of the coast seems better and freer of woods, than any we had seen, having fine green fields and fair meadows. We named this land Cape St Alvise, because first seen on the day of that saint.
