Per L&M footnote vii, 264 n.2 (Aug 29 1666)

... In Tangier he had lived 'like a prince', allegedly from profits in the slave trade. (John to Nathaniel Lake, 16 May 1664 BM, now BL, Mss Sloane 3509 f 56v), though according to the not disinterested Charles Harbourd (1662) he was 'a very careful honest Gent:' ( Bodley, Mss Carte 75 f 28r.) His accounts remained mysterious and he took flight in October 1666.
