1666, Amsterdam, Jan. 11 - The Captain of the Charity, who was taken prisoner in the last summers engagement, was buried the seventh instant, in the vault of the French Church at Rotterdam, his sword being laid on his coffin, and several friends attending him to the grave. He had not been five days above discharge from his imprisonment upon exchange, when, what with the alteration of diet and lodging in both which the Dutch had treated him with the greatest severity, he fell sick and died.
