Journal of Sir Walter Raleigh, 1618.Artist: Sir Walter Raleigh
Journal of Sir Walter Raleigh, 1618. Journal of his second voyage to Guiana, extending from 19th August 1617, when he sailed from Cork, to 13th February 1618. The page reproduced contains entries from 29th October to 13th November, including the time during which he was disabled by fever. From this cause no entries were made between 30th October and 11th November, and a marked difference in the handwriting shows where he resumed his journal on his recovery. From the fourth series of Facsimiles of royal, historical, literary and other autographs in the Department of Manuscripts, British Museum: Series I - V, (London, 1899).
