Establishment of the Russia Company—Chancellor's Second Expedition
Pages 34

CHANCELLOR and his companions quitted Moscow in March, 1554; awaited the favourable season for leaving the Dwina, and returned to England in the Edward Bonadventure. This vessel had the misfortune to fall in with, and be robbed by, the "Flemings," on the passage, but the ship's company reached London with the letter addressed to Edward the Sixth by the Czar, which was delivered to Queen Mary. Chancellor everywhere related how graciously he had been received at Moscow by I van Vassilovitch.
