Minutes [of a Court for Providence Island] […] Mr. Ditloff, intending shortly "to go home into his country," attends to take leave of the [English company governing the Bahamas], and is desired to state all he knows concerning the charge against Mr. Rous deceased, for inveigling Mr. Halhead's servant; answers. Mr. Ditloff adds that he was informed Mr. Rous was insufficient, not able to pray extemporary, and would, soldier-like, beat his men; that he wrote if those things were true Mr. Rous was fitter for a buff coat than a cassock, but afterwards found it otherwise. Mr. Rous taught him songs called catches, "the meaning of which word he understood not," the matter of which was the motion of creatures as the nightingale and the like, and Messrs. Rous and Sherland sang with him, but never on the Sabbath day. Ditloff denies that he had ever been reproved for singing such songs in Providence on the Lord's day.
