Whether the chaine were broken or not is yet disputable, most inchne to the negative, so do % I saw it in severall peeces when~ taken up, which might either be cutt with cold chissells, or the forelocks driven out of the shackles by which the chaine was to open and shutt for a passage. One link I saw cutt, and it is probable the chaine might be over-run and sunke by their shipps, and afterward by them taken in peeces for their better passage down againe.

I hope all heer said will be for private informacion and not for publique use, eoncluding with these humble requests that errors may be pardoned, whats otherwise, accepted.
