June 26, 1676 - Felucca's arrived here this day, we have an account of the French fleet having been at Palermo, and of their burning four Spanish and three Dutch man of war, and two Gallies, it is reported as if the French had lost a man of war in that action, but upon enquiry, it proves without any ground; but that which adds to this ill news, is, that the same day a plot was discovered at Palermo, for the driving out the Spaniards in which some eminent persons were concerned, who, with others, are said; about 14 persons who were suspected to have a part in it, were killed by the people and soldiers in the street.

Sorry, due to a spate of spam I have had to reinstate the Captcha. I know it's a pain and will update to a better solution soon.
You only have to pass this once per session though, once passed you will not see it again for a while.
