Miscellaneous, 1623

1623. 380. "Translation out of Gallo-belgicus upon the Prince's journey." It is sufficiently known how much the King of England and his predecessors have assisted the Hollanders, their neighbours, but they have declared themselves such as he could not have received greater loss from open enemies, for when some principal London merchants began to trade into the East Indies the Hollanders took their ships and merchandize, and by losses constrained the merchants to give over the trade. The King conceived it not fit for them (the merchants) to take revenge for so great insolencies, but determining to embrace their cause and protect them against all enemies and pirates (and by other name the Hollanders cannot be called for this perpetrated mischief), his Majesty had written to the States for for restitution, who answered that those merchandizes were to be thought of in the place where they were taken, which could be no ways acceptable. Therefore, seeing his own Majesty so much offended, he had determined by all means possible to take revenge on the Holland ships, wherever they might be met with, until such damage shall be recompensed.
