What the Captain-Major ordered concerning the ransom of the Sheiks‚ and concerning Iulufar &c:

O w in g to the capture of the Sheiks, the coafts of Arabia remained quiet, altho’ Iulufar was in rebel­ lion,— however as this city had no King it was easy to take or reduce it; accordingly the Captain-Major ordered three galliots which had come from the River of Lafetd to be fitted out, and likewise ordered four 30 lb: guns from the galleons to be placed in each of them. Hieronymo Tavares was placed in command of them together with ten terranquis containing soldiers of the King of Ormuz.
