Whitehall.
1,290. Order of the King. Referring the Attorney General's report on the petition of Thomas Lane and Company to Lords of Trade and Plantations for report. Signed, Nottingham.
Report of the Attorney General on the petition of Thomas Lane and Company. The most essential matter, I apprehend, is not whether the charter requested by the petitioners may legally be granted, but whether its erection will be for the interest of the King and kingdom, of which I am not competent to judge. If the Lords of Trade see no objection to such a charter I see no reason why it should not be granted. Signed, J. Somers. [Board of Trade. Trade Papers, 13. pp. 105–107.]
