The message on the table stated clearly, even if no eyes had read it yet:

<div style="width: 440px; text-align: justify; color: 383838"> Captain Crawford,
Upon the opening of this order, you will proceed to Nassau. On your way, you are hereby directed to stop at the place the pirates called Rhum Cay, located between Long Island and Cat Island, where you will meet a Spanish ship with a white flag and negotiate an exchange of prisoners.
You are fully mandated to conduct the discussions as you see fit in order to get from them Captain Edward Cavendish, Earl of Burlington, who isthe second son of the Duke of Devonshire, in exchange for Captain Fabian Alvarez de Silva, Duke of Olivares, held prisoner in Nassau. If they want other prisoners too within the same exchange, we have nothing against it as long as we obtain the same number of prisoners of similar ranks. In the good interest of our alliance, if they offer French prisoners too, you should agree as long as the terms are acceptable.
From there, proceed to Nassau and report to Governor Woodes Rogers in order to take the Spanish prisoner aboard and deliver him as you had agreed previously with the enemy captain.
Inform your officers as need to know only. Destroy this letter.
