To the Reader.

IN the following Sheets are presented to thy view the Long and Dangerous Voyages, with the Heroick Exploits of the Famous Sir Francis Drake, more concise than they were formerly pub­lished. That I may not seem haerere in Limine, I shall forbear digressing etiher in giving a particular Account of the Passages herein mentioned; or in Apologizing for the Defects that may be found in this Treatise; hoping the Courteous Reader will rather look upon the design than critically inspect the imperfections, or escapes hereof.

That which moved me to the Under­taking hereof, was (next to the re­viving the Memory of this Renown'd Gentleman, the Eccho of whose praises sometimes resounded all the World [Page] over, and to whom we owe the Disco­very of a great Part of what we now possess of Foreign Plantations) to divert that Spirit of Contention that is now arisen in every one almost against his Brother, and to excite, in the Spi­rits of Young People especially, an Aemulation of this Worthy Patriot in Advancing the Glory of their Coun­try by Foreign Conquests.
