Ayscue was at Barbadoes, the islands of St. Christopher and Nevis afforded them much relief; never heard that Governor Everard of St. Christopher's, or Governor Russell of Nevis, were either of them swearers, drunkards, &c., or favourers of such. Has also sent ships to, and traded with those islands.
