Soon after this, fea trapped Gow and all the rest of his crew of twenty-eight men.
Mr. fea did this to give Gow an opportunity to embrace his first offer of surrendering.
Mr. fea sent back the boat, and one James Laing in it, with the letter already mentioned.
Adela was the daughter of Mr. fea, a wealthy gentleman (as wealth was accounted in those days and in those parts) of the island.
While this was doing Mr. fea perceived Gow's boat coming on shore, with five persons in her.
fea and Winckelmann assert that the lead sheets which cover the dome must be renewed eight or ten times in a century.
By a simple stratagem, Mr. fea seized first the bo'son and afterwards the five men.
This they consented to, seeing Mr. fea was alone; so they went all with him.
The two letters from Gow were one for Mr. fea, and the other for his wife.
The bo'son and five men went ashore and met Mr. fea, who entertained them at the local public-house.
