September 1656

Sept. 3. 1,997. [Captains Mark Harrison and Jeffery Dare] to [the Commissioners of the Admiralty?]. Mr. Aylesbury died on 24 August. We shall miss his counsel much. There is no news to give you of the army, nor have we heard of the fleet since its departue. We send an account of the stores left with us. We expect the Governor of Nevis and the families that are coming with him this month, as they were in readiness to embark and daily expecting a ship when we last heard of them. The Hope has arrived with naval stores. We look for a thousand immigrants from New England before long. Unsigned, but dated from the ship Bear. 1½ pp. [Col. Papers, Vol. LXIV., No. 32.]
[Sept.] 1998. An inventory of the goods to be laden by the ship Hope in New England, for Jamaica. 1 p. [Col. Papers, Vol. LXIV., No. 33.]
