Excerpt from The World Displayed, or a Curious Collection of Voyages and Travels, Selected and Compiled From the Writers of All Nations, Vol. 3 of 8

About this time, two perfons on board the Dutchefs attempted to make their el'cape into the woods; but in the night were f0 frightened by the neife made by the monkies and baboons, which they took to be tygers, that they ran back, plunged into the water, and called out to the fhi p, in order to be taken on board. This, however, did not prevent two Irifh landmen efcaping into the woods fome time after. On the 23d, about four in the morning, the watch on the quarter deck, obfervlin g a canoe, called to the men to come on board, but they not anfwering, and firiving to get away, it was fufpeéted that they had either got the two men, or were going to fetch them off the i¿and, upon which the pinnace and yawl were immediately fent after them, and the pinnace coming near the canoe, fired in order to Pray them, but to no purpofe, till one of the Indians who rowed the canoe was wounded the owner of the canoe, who ¿eered her, was a friar, who had a quantity of gold which he had got at the mines. This friar ran the canoe on fhore in a little iiland full of wood, at the infiant the pinnace and yawl landed, and was running away, when a Portu guefe, who had no gold to hide, and knew the others to be Englifh, called the friar back, who, with feveral {laves were taken on board the Duke, but the wounded Indian died in two hours. Capt. Rogers made the friar as welcome as he could.
