HE SETTLES IN THE BRAZILS AS A PLANTER?MAKES ANOTHER VOYAGE, AND IS SHIPWRECKED. As he was charitable in this proposal, so he was just in the performance, to a tittle: for he ordered the seamen, that none should offer to touch anything 1 had: then he took everything into his own possession, and gave me back an exact inventory of them, that I might have them, even so much as my three earthen jars.
