Thislsuccess in this expedition, joined to his honor able conduct towards the owners and towards his men, gained him a high reputation, and the application of his newly acquired riches, still greater. For, fitting out three stout frigates at his own expense, he sailed to Ireland, and serving as a volunteer, under Walter, Earl of Essex, performed some prodigies Of valour. After the death Of this noble patron, he returned to England, where Sir Christopher Hatton, a mighty favourite'with the queen, introduced him to her majesty, and procured him countenance and protection at court. Thus bask ing in the beams of royal favour, his views expanded to nobler aims than he had yet attempted and he project ed that expedition to the Great South Sea, which will render his name immortal. This expedition we are about to relate.
