Hawkins' third voyage (1567-9) proved to be disastrous. The
Spanish, determined to protect their own trade interests in their
West Indian colonies, attacked Hawkins' ships in the harbour at
San Juan de Ulua, near Veracruz in Mexico. Only two of his six ships
escaped; the rest, with their cargoes, were seized or destroyed.
This is part of the commission of inquiry into Hawkins' last voyage.
Here we see an assessment of the prices that Hawkins' backers would
have expected to receive on the sale of the slaves.
