Chenebecfc, & is no further cald by the name of Sacadehock. Now Sacadchock River is a cert.<ia6
and sure place f'jr one terme of its bounds, but the Hands are doubtfull, which they are, or wh*r
they are; more ouer ther possession was first taken. Mr. Clecue in his answere readily acroptrd
their offer of a triall at Boston ; wherviKin thi-y both bound theniselues each to other in a b<.ud of
6007J. personally to appeare at Boston the next Court after May, then & ther to impleade citoh
other. * * *

Furthermore Mr.Cleeue demanded a sight of their originals for gouerment, none bein^i-ro-
dnced, he disci-limed obedience, and told ther was no equality betweene his something ii V.ivlr
nothing. It was also agreed, that none of each company or party should, at any time or vj.-'n
any occasion, be troubled or molested by an y of the otiier party or company, vntill the suit afjre-
iayd be ended.

Mr. Cleeue layd his injunction in particular on Mr. Jordane, ncuer more to administ'-r th«
Beales of the Covenant promiscuously, i without duo order &. ordination, within the province of
Lygonia^

I must needs acknowledge, to their high commendation , that both >Ir. Jocelyne* & Mr. Cleeve
carried on the interaction very friendly, like men of wisdome i prudence, not glueing ou" - m:»-
beholding word each together, such was the power of Gods Uoly Word, aweing their hearts.
Tcur letters were also very valide, & gratefully accepted on both parties. Thus after two or
three daies agitation, each man departed very peaceably to his owne home.

Thus, right worthy Sir, according to the trust committed to me, I haue faithfully (.tbough
rudly) composed the chiefe matters in that their transaction, &. hane here sent tiiem vnto you.
So I «omit you to God & rest. Youra to comand

Sir, I haue lately ben earnestly solicited by one Mrs. Tucker, an intimate friend of min?, t
'an approTfd godly woman, that I would wTit mto your worship ; that in case Mr. CkJ^ue L
her husband (Mr. Tucker) shall happen fhortly to haue recourse to yoursclfe, to end some mat-
ters of difTeience betweene them, now at thi.-ir departure each from other, that you wov.ld be
pleased, as much as in you lye, not to suffer Mr. Cleaue to MTong her husband, for though her
husband hath ben as it were a servant hitherto for Mr. Cleaue, yet now at their making vp « f
accounts, Mr. Cieaue by his subtill head, brings in Mr. Tucker lOOit. debter to him.

Province of Ligonia, vnJer pretence of a protest against vs. whoe have sevtrall Conimis-
siotis from Mr. Rigby for the present government of his l*rovijice. The heads of this league
are Mr. Henry Jocelyn, Mr. Arthur Mackworth, & Ffrancis Robinson, which Mr. Mack-,
worth did willingly submit to Mr. Rigbyes authority formerly, and did subscribe to his conjiitu-
cions, & received a Commission from him to t>e an Assistant. & acted by it til! he was drawns
away by the perswasir.n of Mr. Vines i Mr. Jorden, (one mworthily called a minister of Christ.)
From these two men all this evill doth principally flowe, for though Mr. Vines be now gone,
yet he hath presumed to depute Mr. Jocelyn in his stead, although he never had any Coniniis-
gion ioe to doe ; yet he, by the councell of Mr. Jorden, hath taken vpon him, as a lawful! Mag-
istrate to come into Cascoe Bay &, hath gon« from house to liouse, being accoiiipaned witli
Efrancis Rcibinson i Arthur Mackworth. i have discourra-.'ed the peojde of Ligonia, & drawne

a great height of contention, which we are very son-ye for, 4 would not be wantinge to doe
what lyes in vs for composinge the same. But whereas the differences grewe vjion extent of
some Patents i right of Jurisdiction wherein Mr. Rigby i others in K : are interested, k lettres

may presume they will observe the s^inie. i will not attempt any acts of hostility against you ;

Next to that eastward is seated by a river near the sea Gorgiana, a majoraltio and the metro-

of that, where there is a town of tlie Kime name, the houses scatteringly built, all these to* ns
hare store of salt and frc-sh marsh with arable land, and all well stocked with cattle. About
8 or nine miles to the Eastward of Caf. Porput is >^in^ r harbour, a noted place for fishers,
here they have many stages. Haco adjoina to this, and l>oth make one scattering to^-n of large
extent, well store.1 with cattle, arable l.md and marsJics and a saw mill. Six mil..-3 to the east-
ward of .Siico and 40 miles from Georgiana is seated the town of llaxk j^nnl, consisting of about
60 dwelling hoases, and a magazine or (f-i^a/in* scatteringly built, they luive store of neat and
horses, of sheep near upon 7 or 800, much arable and marsh salt and fresh and a corn-mill. To
the southward of t\ir: point (upon which are stages for e=hermen) lie two small island-) ; be-
yond the point,|N'orlh eastward runs the river of Spurwink. p. 200.

i'lirther eastw.ird is the town of Keunel>eo seated upon the river. Further yet eii-stward is
Sagailf hock, where there are many houses scattering and all alou;; stages for lishermen, thoso

Indians Sebug on the briuk thereof at one end is the famous rock shaped like a moose dar or

p. 207. The people in the Province of ilaiue may be divided into magistrates, husbandmen
or planters, and fishermen ; of the magistrates some bo royalists, the rest i>erverso spirits, the
like are the planters and fishers, of which some be planters aud fishers both, others mecr fish-
ers.

Handicraftsmen there are but few, the tumelor or cooper, snuths or carpenters are best wel-
come amongst them, shopkeepers there are none, being supplied by the Massachusetts mer-
chants with all things they stand in need of. Englisli shoes are sold for S or 9shils, a pair,
worsted stockings of Cs. Cd. for 7 and Ss. a pair, Douglass that is sold ia Eugl»id for 1 or 2 and

times four times a d ly, and now and then drinking a dram of the b.jttle e.vtraordinarily * *•
They feed generally uijon as good flesh, beef, pork, mutton, fowl, and fish as any in the world ba-
Bide3. Their servants which ai-e for the most part English, will not work under a half a crown
a day, when they are out of their time, although it be for to make hay, and for less I do not
see how they can by rea.son of the dearness of clothing. If they hire them by the year they
pay them 1-1 or £15 at the years end in corn, cattle and in fi»h : some of these prove excellent
fowlers, bringing in as many as will maintain their master's house ; besides the profit that ac"
crne3 by their feathers.

p. 210. The fishermen take yearly ujion the coast many hundred kcntals of cod, hake, had-
dock, iwlluck, Ac. ic. which they spUt, salt and dry at their stages, making three voyages in a
year. 'When they share their fish, which is at the end of every voyage, they separate the best
from the worst, w liich is known when it is clear like a lanthorn horn and without spots ; tbo
second sort they call refuse fish, that is such a.s is salt burnt, spotted, rotten and carelessly or-
dered ; these they put oft' to the M;issachusetts merchants ; the merchantable for 30 aud 32
reals a kental (112 i>ounds) the refuse for 9 and 10s. the quintal. The merchants send the
merchantable fish to Lisbon, Bilbo, Bunleaux, Marsilos, Talloon, Rochel, Iloan, and other cities
of France, to the Canaries with claw board aud pipe staves, which is there aud at the Charibs a
prime commodity ; the refuse fish they put off at the Charib isbtnds, Barbadocs, Jamaica, ic.
who feed their Negros with it.

p. 211. To every shallop belong four fishermen, a ma-ster or steersman, a Midshipman, and a
foremast man and a shore man, who washes it out of the salt and dries it upon bundles and
tends their cookery.

These often gtt in one voyage 8 or £9 a man, but it doth some of them little good, for the
merchant to incrca.-'O his gain by putting otf his commodity in the middest of their voyages, aud
at the end thereof comes in with a walking tav.-rn, a bark laden with the I.gitiinate bb.iidof
the rich grape which they bring from Phial, Madera, Canaries, with brandy, rum, the B.u badoes
strong water and tobacco, coming a shore he gives them a taster or two, which so cliarms tl.em,
that for no persuasions will they go to sea, although fair and.8«jasoQ.-»ble weather for 2 or 3 dayp,

nay sometimos a wholp week, till thoy arc wparir.! with drinking, taking a shore 2 or 3 hhds. of

They often have to run in debt for thc-ir necessarie:? ou account of the livish ex]tens>' [•>r drink

the tinie is expired is sure to turn them out of house and home, seizing their plantsitions and
cattle, poor creatures, to look out for a new habitation in some remote phtce, where they begin
the world agTiiu. p. 212.

Of the sanio nature are the people in the Duke'a prorince, who not long before I left the
country petitioned Mass. to take them into their government, p. 21:2.
