August 1621

Aug. 11. 55. Answer of the Virginia Company to the request of the Walloons and French to plant in Virginia, signed by John Ferrar, Deputy. Do not conceive any inconvenience, provided the number does not exceed 300, and they take the oath of allegiance to the King and conform to the rules of government established in the Church of England. Cannot recommend the King to aid them with shipping; the exhausted stock of the Company prevents them from affording any help. Land will be granted to them in convenient numbers in the principal cities, boroughs, and corporations in Virginia. [Copy.]
