The 2$th.we made Gape- Ort'ugal. (The 26th we were under fome Uneafinefs: For kt Sun-fet 'we counted a Ship more than oar Number, which we had jReafoh to believe by- the Latitude we were in to be no jother than a Privateer.   At 1 j wefaw two Sail foul of each jother, and not far from u->; but in endeavouring to go to ftheir Afliftance, the Berce mifs'd Stays, upon whicq tbe |neareft Ship was Qfdered to join them.   At Day-light we found it ta be a Dutch Fly-boat with Proyifionts for the Expedition, who had been foul of a Ship bound to St. Do-^mingo, and carried away hep Foreman, t   The 5th of July.we difcovered feven Sail three br four \ Leagues (o Windward of us, But we had too much to undertake at the End of the Voyage to amufe ourfelves by {the Way.   Unhappily for us we w$�t on but flowly ; for khough we had b en on near a Month, we were not yet diftant from France zoo Leagues, die Winds having alrooft always been contrary, fo that the 7th we were obliged to bring too under a-Mainfail.   Thjjjjijth the Wind came fair, and put us all in good Spirits.

The 24th we have now left France 64 1 Day?, and are yet 300 Leagues from Acadia, the Place it is imagined we are bound to, though it is much to be \ feared that this long Paffagewill hinder the Succefs of the I? Expedition: JGod be praifed we have not yet,a great 1 miny Sick;' but the People fiiffer daily for want of Water; I we are obliged to be careful of it on Account of the fmall \ Progrefs in our Voyage.  The'24th, we burnt one of our I Veffels Which was finking, and repk�cd W wiA a Snow ' and an Engliih Ship from Antigua; the] ftrft takeh by the Magere, the laft by the Diamant.

The 15^ the Weather cleared up, and we joined- the Tigre and 25 Merchant Ships.  At 6 in the Evening the Mercury.
