Desiring You Hereafter Never To Mislike With Me For The Taking In Hand Of Any Laudable And Honest Enterprise, For If, Through Pleasure And Idleness, We Purchase Shame, The Pleasure Vanisheth, But The Shame Remaineth For Ever.

And therefore, to give me leave without offence always to live and die in this mind, THAT HE IS

NOT WORTHY TO LIVE AT ALL THAT FOR FEAR OR DANGER OF DEATH SHUNNETH HIS COUNTRY'S SERVICE AND HIS OWN HONOUR, seeing death is inevitable, and the fame of virtue immortal. Wherefore, in this behalf, Mutare vel timere sperno.

CERTAIN OTHER REASONS OR ARGUMENTS TO PROVE A PASSAGE BY THE NORTH- WEST Learnedly written by Master Richard Willes, Gentleman.

Four famous ways there be spoken of to those fruitful and wealthy islands, which we do usually call Moluccas, continually haunted for gain, and daily travelled for riches therein growing. These islands, although they stand east from the meridian, distant almost half the length of the world, in extreme heat under the equinoctial line, possessed of infidels and barbarians, yet by our neighbours great abundance of wealth there is painfully sought in respect of the voyage dearly bought, and from thence dangerously brought home to us. Our neighbours I call the Portuguese, in comparison of the Molucchians for nearness unto us, for like situation westward as we have for their usual trade with us; for that the far south- easterings do know this part of Europe by no other name than Portugal, not greatly acquainted as yet with the other nations thereof.
