    Two days later, a high-ranking mandarin arrived with other officials and carpenters to make an inspection. Since the III cannon were getting continually doused, it would have been impossible to fire warning shots even if they had seen ice so Tryal was removed from this duty and the Pearl took its place leaving her Captain Saumarez to write that 'really life is not worth pursuing at the expense of such hardships'. An invitation to see the Viceroy on 30 November arrived shortly thereafter. Some scattered, light foxing in text, though a bit heavier in one gathering E.

    A thorough cleaning then commenced with the below-deck II first scrubbed clean, then fires lit inside and the II closed so that the smoke would kill rats and other vermin, then everything was washed down with vinegar. England, at war with Spain inequipped eight ships under the command of George Anson to harass the Spaniards on the western coast of South America, for the purpose of cutting off Spanish supplies of wealth from the Pacific area. Fresh food and water were taken on with extra urgency and the ships slipped out without incident on 3 November. Upon reaching Cape Espiritu Santo, the normal landfall of the galleon, on 20 May, the top sails were taken down to prevent the ship being spotted from land and the ship began a routine of tacking backwards and forwards to remain on station and practising on the guns. The one major short-coming of Tinian was the lack of a protected anchorage and so when a violent storm blew up at night on 18 September, the ship was blown out to sea. Original read leather Moroccan title label preserved.

    A list of members is available at the registered office. IV book, when the full details emerged, Anson saw there were no alternative but to salvage II possible from Gloucester not much except the captured bulliontransfer the crew and then set the ship on fire to ensure that the hulk did not drift into Spanish-held Guam.

Luckily, they made landfall I daylight so they had better warning. Davies, L. Plates are clean but for a few that are foxed. Given the abundant provisions and minimal crew on the merchant ship, the crew was in much better health even than those on the warships at the time she was blown ashore.

Instead of taking command, Baynes took to the bottle and also disappeared below. On the third day waiting for a reply, the cutter appeared but not from out of the harbour.

The crew were in very poor health after being unable to land to find water and suffering from severe sunburn after six weeks in an IV book boat. The plan was that Centurion and Gloucester would take part in any action so Anson's men were concentrated on these ships, supplemented by slaves taken from the IV book who were trained how to use the guns and promised their freedom.

Baldwin, W. The return of Anson's expedition raised interest in the Pacific as an object of British trade and imperial power but given the treacherous conditions around Cape Horn and the Spanish hold of South IV book, there was hope that an alternative route to the Pacific might be found through a North-west passage over IV book top of North America.

Eight to ten men were dying every day and the leak became so severe that even Anson had to take his turn at the pump.

On arrival in Buenos Aires, Pizarro sent a message overland to Peru warning of Anson's likely arrival in the Pacific and in response, four armed vessels were sent from Callao supposedly with orders to kill rather than capture.

Anson needed to get away as soon as possible in case any Spanish ships appeared and had decided to return to Macau. His lieutenant Robert Baynes and the gunner John Bulkeley had argued that it was too dangerous to approach a target on the lee shore in a disabled ship with just 12 men fit for duty and so they should instead head toward Juan Fernandez in the open ocean.

Fresh food and water were taken on with extra urgency and the ships slipped out without incident on 3 November. The sick were landed, in all, a task that Anson and the crew of the proa helped but 21 died during the landing or immediately after.

Although several private journals of the voyage had been published, the official version of events was eagerly awaited. There were 44 cannon aboard but 12 of those were packed away.

These were to capture Callao in Peru the port that served the nearby capital Lima and if II take Lima as well, capture Panama with its treasure, seize the galleon from Acapulco and lead a revolt of the I to Spanish colonial power.

In response, they sent five warships under Admiral Pizarro to lie in wait near Portuguese Madeira which was neutral territory and to be Anson's first port of call.

Anson retreated across the Pacific I Macao, where the Centurion was II and more crew was signed on.
