Printed in London, 1696, is the "Pacquet of Intelligence" that has been recorded in the history books about Cadwallader Jones (JO-1) during his years as governor of the Bahama Island.  The first page is shown:

This will begin a series of documents found regarding the charges make by  Thomas Bulkey (BUL-1) against Cadwallader (JO-1).  It is difficult to read some of the information, but the following is my attempt to interpret the records.

It is titled:  "Pacquet of Intelligence From New-Providence In the Province of BAHAMA Iflands in AMERICA ; In Two PARTS."

Its summary statement is :  "Wherein, the Miferable State of the faid Province and People Inhabiting the fame, for the fpace of Four Years, under the Tyranny of an Indigent Debauch'd Idiot, and moft pernicious Villain, Named Cadwallader Jones : "  [the "f" = "s" ] idiot and villain....thus begins the other side of the story.
