A letter to Christoffer Leijoncrona from Captain Ken Hoskins on HMS The Restoration gave a reccomendation for "...Samuel Relfenck and [Wal]ter Smith, being officers under the king of Sweden, as by their papers may appear, came aboard Their Majesties Ship The Restoration under my command as volunteers on the 13th day of June 1693 during which time they behaved themselves soberly and dilligently with obedience to command and doe conceive them to fittly qualified to serve at sea, and doe therefor reccomend them to your lordship's favour"
