Annotation: 

Letter.  Croatans “probably were those pirates who escaped ... the pirate settlement ...when Rhett, in 1719, captured the pirate ship and the crew on board.  As the Charleston Court hung [sic] all the pirates who were captured, these who, being on land, escaped, would not have anything to do with the new settlers.”
