On The Morning
Of The 9th, Before Sun-Rise, We Found Ourselves Within Command Of A
Battery Of Eight Cannon, Wherefore We Hoisted Our Anchor, And Removed A
League Farther To The Southwards, Where We Again Anchored In Thirty-Five
The pilot Gomez came aboard soon after, accompanied by other
two Spaniards of good family, whom I received with such welcome, that
they took their lodging on board.
They brought me a present of eatables
from their general, to whom I sent back a suitable return; offering to
supply his wants with any thing in my ship he desired, taking cloves in
payment, and desiring a speedy answer, as I could not tarry long. The
two Dutch ships continued to ply after us, as if they would have
anchored beside us, but they afterwards went to anchor at their new fort
of Maracco, or Marieca.
