|Clothiers of the North Parts trading to London and also of Wales, Devonshire and Somerset to the Privy Council.|
Through the late arrest made by the French King of
all English cloth in his dominions, the merchants of London have
been barred from their trading there, and petitioners have no vent
for their cloths. The principal cause is by the staplers and others,
who not only transport wools in great abundance into France, but
buy wools upon the sheeps' backs so that petitioners cannot get
sufficient wool under an excessive rate, which has risen from 16s
the tod to 28s. They pray that the staplers and others be forbidden to transport wools to France.—Undated.
½ p. (P. 2087.)
The export of wool was prohibited by the Privy Council on 6 September, 1614. See Acts of Privy Council, 1613–14, p. 546.

doth rayne in in many places whereby the sealing is in danger to
fall downe if itt be not intended in tyme, and the playsterynge in
the outt sid is much fallen downe. Ther is no thinge cane be

your Lordshipps parcke of Mr Swayne for the which I am to pay
