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 Mutine parted t Company, it was faid for MiiEfipi, and the Ships, bound ' to Canada, &c. were ordered to. make the beft of their Way. The 19th rhe Renomee went a head, we imagine to get fome Intelligence of the Place we were deftin$cl for. [The 23d we faw Si, Mary's, one of the Weftern Iltandi, diftah: ioyt&agu^s'. ' And thi 3d of Autfaft, taoogh it is now ten Days fince, we' are fcarcfe out ot Sight of Sib Weftern lflands, by1 Reafon of little Winds, ana almoft [ conft'ant Calms. 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. Sept. 1 ft, we had very violent Squaulsv with Thunder, which- carried away the^ Mars's Main Top Gallant Maft, -and damaged her Main' I and Maih Top Mails. 4th, The Tigretbok a Snow from I Carolina,1 aBd-the-DiamahC (00k another the 6th from I the - fame Place; The loth, we difcovered the Coaft of I Acadia, at 4 in "the Afternoon, and as we drew near our I intended Port, we were in great Hopes of anchoring with-out another Accident. Butfori\the 13th a Gale fprung up at South, and ^UHiaithick Feg feparated the Fleet, ibthat we toutd" nefth|r fee nor hear the Signals, and it .was not without Difficulty, that we .putt he Shjp about, for befides I the nearnefij of ;&� Land and the Ifle of Sable, we were greatly eppce^ned- for /ear of running on board of Ships ; ^owever, "wfc;^fcaped withput.any Q^er Misfortune than lofing Company. The 15^ the Weather cleared up, and we joined- the Tigre and 25 Merchant Ships. At 6 in the Evening the Mercury. Ho/pital Ship told usj that Moniieur de I'qurnell, who had fplit two Fore .Sails, had feflt a Frigate tb'.look.out for the General. The Cariboo, Leonard,' Alc�de,,Md^k^3.^i�5a..a>^pp Mail, and the " ^eing very'leaky, fteered for the American lflands, the -be�g ordered- to^ take-C�re-�f-her ; in (hort, I never Ehd'if I was to point out to you all our Mis-irtaoes*^ 3 --   ^ t ''.
