7. Sir Rich. Grenville to Sec. Walsingham. Acquaints him with the success of his voyage. Has performed the action directed, and discovered, taken possession of, and peopled a new country [Virginia], and stored it with cattle, fruits, and plants. The commodities that are found there are such as he was advertised of by his cousin Sir Walter Raleigh. In his way home captured, after some fighting, a Spanish ship, returning from St. Domingo, laden with ginger and sugar. The report that the Spaniards bring great quantities of pearl and gold and silver from St. Domingo is incorrect.
