      nine o'Clock at Night, said Vessel in her Passage run between two Rocks called
      Pishop and Clarke, off he Coast of Wales, and as the Crew expected by said
      Vessel's beating that she would instantly founder, got into the long Boat (the
      Vessel's Sails being set) took out the Compass and made ashore; the Master next
      Morning by the Assistance of a Spye-glass, saw three Vessels under Sail, the
      Middlemost of which he apprehended belonged to him, and immediately hired a
      Sloop and bore away for her, and about nine o'Clock at Night came up with and
      boarded her, and found it to be the same Vessel; the Wind coming about to the
