Clarke, P.440, Alleges That It Was Soffala; And Yet, In A Note In His Preceding Page, Says, "That De

Gama seems to have passed Cape Corientes during the night, and to have kept so far from land, on account

Of a strong current setting on shore, as not to have noticed Sofala." In the notes on the Lusiad, this river of Good Signs is ascertained to have been one of the mouths of the Zambeze, or Cuama River, which divides Mocaranga from the coast of Mozambique; the different mouths of which run into the sea between the latitudes of 19 deg. and 18 deg. S. - E.

[24] They were evidently afflicted with the scurvy; and accordingly De Barros refers the disease to its proper cause, "Having been for so long a time confined to the use of salt fish and corrupted biscuit. - Clarke."

[25] Addition to the narrative of Castaneda, from De Barros. - Clarke.

[26] This obscure expression seems to mean that De Gama wished them to precede the ships, and point out the way into the harbour. - E.

[27] This expression has probably been misunderstood by the original translator. It appears that these Moors of Mozambique spoke Arabic, here called the language of Algarve, and finding themselves understood and answered by the strangers, mistook the Portuguese for Moors. - E.

[28] Mozambique is in lat. 15 deg. 35' S. and in 41 deg. of E. Long - E.

[29] The observations here inserted, and marked with inverted commas, are made by the Editor of the present collection.
