      Commission of Captain Thomas Paine

      "Sir Thomas Lynch, Knight, one of the gentlemen of his Majesty's bed chamber, and Captain General and Governor in Chief of his Majesty's Island of Jamaica and territories thereunto depending, and vice Admiral to his Royal Highness, James, Duke of York, in the American seas."
      "Whereas, I am informed there are several pirates that have most barbarously murthured divers of his Majesty's subjects, robbing others and taking several vessels, cursing the King, and not so much as pretending to belong to any Prince, or to have any commission of war. There are therefore to authorize Capt. Thomas Paine, commander of the Frigate Pearl, to seize the said pirates, and to take, kill and destroy the said pirates and their ships, provided they resist and cannot be brought in, for doing which this shall be your warrant. I likewise, hereby further assure you and your men, that for such service you shall have all the favor they can expect, or I can render you and them."
      "Given under my hand, this 13th of October, 1682, Jamaica.
      Signed, Thomas Lynch.
      By His Excellency Commanding, Henry Harrington, Sect."
