NEWBERY, LETTER TO HAKLUYT, 28TH MAY, 1583
Pages 1

Right well beloved and my assured good friend, I heartily commend me unto you hoping of your good health, etc.

After we set sail from Gravesend, which was the 13th day of February last, we remained upon our coast until the 11th day of March, and that day we set sail from Falmouth, and never anchored till we arrived in the road of Tripolis in Syria, which was the last day of April last past; where we stayed fourteen days. And the 20th1 of this present we came hither to Aleppo, and, with God’s help, within five or six days go from hence towards the Indies.
