The author arrives at False Bay, describes his landlord and family, and is received by the Commandant of the British troops. He notes his landlord's improper conduct, proceeds to Cape Town in Africa, describes the town and the character of the Dutch inhabitants as well as their conduct towards slaves. He also describes the climate; notes the fruits, vegetables, animals, and other productions; meets with several Mohammedans; and sells his slave and some other property in order to support his expenses. The Danish ship is brought from False Bay to Table Bay, its captain prosecuted for plundering the vessel in the river Ganges, and his ship thereby prevented from departing. The other passengers prosecute the captain, and recover half the passage for England.
