Save Money On Flights

The 1st March We Lost Sight Of The Hind In A Tornado; On Which We Set Up A Light And Fired A Gun, But Saw Nothing Of Her, Wherefore We Struck Sail And Lay By For Her, And In The Morning Had Sight Of Her 3 Leagues Astern.

This day we found ourselves in the latitude of Cape Verd which is in 14 deg.

30' [14 deg. 50' N.] Continuing our course till the 29th, we were then in 22 deg., on which day one of our men named William King died in his sleep, having been long sick. His clothes were distributed among those of the crew who were in want of such things, and his money was kept to be delivered to his friends at home. The 30th we found ourselves under the tropic. On the 1st April we were in the latitude of the Azores, and on the 7th of May we fell in with the south of Ireland, where we sent our boat on shore for fresh water, and where we bought two sheep and such other victuals as we needed from the country people, who are wild _kernes_. The 14th of the same month we went into the port of Bristol called Hungrode[259], where we cast anchor in safety, giving God thanks for our happy arrival.

[Footnote 259: Probably that now called King-road? - E.]
