Dingle of the Husseys, Part 11

Start of the return journey:
The twenty-second, having well refreshed our soldiers, and agreed on the plan of fortifications, with other matters for answering the service both by sea and lande. we returned back to Castel-Mayne, camping that night at The Inch, beside the Baye of Dingell. I have forgotten to lett your Lordship understand, that the ships hath made themselves a sort of castel upon the shore, and hath their cattel passing about it, which they take from the natives by marching farre into the countrie.
Interesting and entirely un-ironic reference to "natives". (Of course, White was an Irish native himself.)

No more cockle-picking.
