Between Which Island And The Main We Found A Very Good And Safe Harbour For Our Ships To Ride In, As Also Very Good Entrance, And Void Of Any Danger. On This Island Our General Erected A Pinnace, Whereof He Brought Out Of England With Him Four Already Framed.

While these things were in doing, there came to the water's side some of the inhabitants of the country,

Shewing forth their flags of truce; which being seen of our General, he sent his ship's boat to the shore to know what they would. They being willing to come aboard, our men left there one man of our company for a pledge, and brought two of theirs aboard our ship; which by signs shewed our General that the next day they would bring some provision, as sheep, capons, and hens, and such like. Whereupon our General bestowed amongst them some linen cloth and shoes, and a javelin, which they very joyfully received, and departed for that time. The next morning they failed not to come again to the water's side. And our General again setting out our boat, one of our men leaping over-rashly ashore, and offering friendly to embrace them, they set violent hands on him, offering a dagger to his throat if he had made any resistance; and so laying him on a horse carried him away. So that a man cannot be too circumspect and wary of himself among such miscreants. Our pinnace being finished, we departed from this place the 30th and last day of December, and coasting along the shore we did descry, not contrary to our expectation, certain /canters/, which were Spanish fishermen; to whom we gave chase and took three of them.
