Encounter with Russian lodja, 16 August 1597
Veer, Gerrit de
Various episodes from an encounter with a Russian lodja are combined here. We see how the Dutch boat, which has lost sight of the other boat, buys food from a lodja, and is subsequently lured back by its crew when the latter notice that the boat goes off in the wrong direction after the encounter.
