Francis Drake’s Hat Stolen by Indians near Río de la Plata
'Native Americans dance around European soldiers. One takes a hat from a soldier's head. In the background are five ships, one of which is on fire.Drake and his fleet of five ships landed at Rio de la Plata in April 1578 during their circumnavigation. One of the ships was in such disrepair that Drake decided to burn it. The natives came down to the beach to watch the burning and one of them snatched Drake's hat with its gold ribbons and ran away with it. This work contains relations of six different voyages: three by Sir F. Drake, one circumnavigation by T. Cavendish, and two by Sir W. Raleigh to Guiana. An account of Drake's first voyage, written by Niño de Sylva, had not previously been published. The account of Drake's second voyage is based upon the account of the circumnavigation by T. Cates. Drake's third voyage is derived from his logbook of the expedition against the Spanish in Panama. Th. de Bry's America. Pt. 8. German.'
