The Portuguese, by their own account, had decided to send them out, but the signal agreed upon to recall Ruy Freire from Ormuz to assume the command of them miscarried, and owing to the faint-heartedness of the "almirante" Luiz de Brito they declined to accept the challenge and made no move. " Ruy Freire was disposed to these conditions, but demanded that the same terms should be extended to his Moslem Ormuzian auxiliaries. This Monnox at declined to do, as by the terms of the treaty with the Persians they were entitled to all the Mohamedan prisoners, and that therefore these auxiliaries would have to be surrendered to the Khan.
