Scourge of the spanish and any of their ships or ports in the
carribean or south america.

One to the lord of the admiralty offering to retrieve a treasure
of ninety thousand pounds which he had secreted during his dealings

unfortunately he was not believed, or rather, he had to die in
any event, to appease the mogul of india who's trade was being
devasted by the english pirates........................................
