Publication No. 96.

Pedro de Salazar, Governor of Margarita to the King.
25th March, 1596. Margarita.

from the Spanish.

Summary.-The enemy is wintering in the Indies and there
is a powerful Spanish fleet in pursuit.
On the 8th March four corsairs left without communicating
with the shore going in the direction of Cartagena after
Drake's fleet.
The Licenciado Pedro de Liano has arrived to enquire
into the irregular trading along the Main.

Verbatim.-After the Englishman had landed the Governor,
Antonio de Berrio, I endeavoured to equip him and with
the fifteen men I gave him, he went to the Island of Trinidad.
From there he went to the mainland and up the River Orinoco
to Macaparana where he is awaiting the orders of Your
Majesty and hoping for men so as to set out on his exploration.
I reported to Your Majesty that the General Guaterral
who took possession of the Island of Trinidad and sailed up
the River Orinoco to the Province of Guayana, had left
in the protection of the Cacique Mariquite, two Englishmen
as hostages for the Cacique's son. I have sent from here
experienced men with Indian interpreters to find them and
bring them here or kill them. They went there and finding
what had happened, they caught and brought me one
Englishman whom I detain here and will send to you by the
ship which will come for the pearls. The other Englishman
was devoured by tigers.
The English, the Caciques say, hope to come and occupy
that province in the month of May.
