Pirates Ashore!

Pirates Ashore is Coming!

Privateer Captain Thomas Cromwell after leaving Plymouth for Boston in 1646, showed uncommon kindness in his selection of lodging:

“He and all his men had much money, and great store of plate and jewels of great value; yet he took up his lodging in a poor thatched house, and when he was offered the best in the town, his answer was, that in his mean estate that poor man entertained him, when others would not, and therefore he would not leave him now, when he might do him good.”
