The author describes his arrival at Nantz, France, and his travel to England. At Nantz, a French town, the poor people who dealt in every commodity approached him and his group and offered different kinds of fruit, bread, and fresh butter for sale. The sailors, who had not seen this fare for six months, were very happy to see their native land. The author remained in Nantz for sixteen days, after which Captain S. and Mr. Peacock set out post in a carriage for England. After a week's voyage, they arrived at Calais and then reached England in one day, at the small sea-port of Dover.
