Portuguese Treasure

This story of buried treasure concerns Little John’s Island. Years ago there was a tavern on the North end of the island, a hangout for sailors, and one of these was a Portuguese who never did any work but always had plenty of gold and silver to spend when he blew in from parts unknown. This went on for years.

Finally the Portuguese man died in some foreign land, but before he died, he gave a shipmate a map of Little John’s Island showing the location of a hidden well. At the bottom of this well, he said, was more gold and silver than half a dozen men could carry. He knew because he had helped put it there. This has never been reported as found.
