6. 

                           The captain
                                      
                                              showed

them all his goods                                      and
                      also had some shots fired with his artillery           they were

afraid that they wished to jump                  into the sea


       
                      we saw came two long boats, which they call
Ballanghai

               the king ordered to be brought a dish of pig's flesh and
wine                                they first raise their hands to heaven



I ate flesh on Good Friday
