ABSTRACT

Queen Elizabeth is reported to have sent for him on his return from this voyage, to have expressed her concern at the undertaking, and to have told him, " i f any Afr i - " cans should be carried away without their " free consent, it would be detestable, and " call down the vengeance of Heaven upon " the undertaking."*

Hawkins, who was a species of freebooter, still persisted in his lawless enterprises. H e

made another voyage in 1564, and in 1568 a 1564 third : this last voyage, however, terminated 1568 miserably, and the fate which Elizabeth had threatened fell upon him.
