Pynn, late commander of the London, prepare a list of the Company's ships in the Indies, together with their condition, and whether fit to return to England. The wages of John Cooper, carpenter of the Reformation, who in a mutinous manner at Portsmouth declared that if they met the Dutch he would not fight, ordered to be stayed till he had answered his miscarriage. Sale of 4 hhds. of cloves to grocers at 16s. per lb. ready money, or at three months time if they find partners to take 20 hhds., approved.
Dec. 12.—Motion of Mr. Woodall in reference to the expenses of Forbes, a Scotchman, who came in the Dutch ships and was examined before the Lords in the business of Amboyna, Woodall having according to order not only defrayed his lodging and diet, but lent him 20l.; remembering how ready Forbes was to declare his knowledge of that bloody action, he was called in and told that the Court had ordered not only his charge's to be defrayed, but also the 20l., which he seemed not to expect, but thankfully accepted and promised his best services. Difference between Capt. Langford and Mr. Short about his brother's estate; Capt. Langford desiring protection from the violent proceedings of Short, who had arrested him; ordered that Short be warned to attend on Friday. The Jonas speedily to fall down to Erith, where she may ride with more safety than at the Wall. Ordered that no more white wine be provided than is necessary for the Dove.
Dec. 14.—Ordered that Valentine Mooretoft receive 50l. of Muschamp's wages for the use of Muschamp's mother. Forty shillings to be paid to Wm. Chapman, who went out in the Jonas and came home in the London, on account. Allowance of 5s. for each bag of pepper discovered by John Beaple, Richard Saul, Simon Perrott, and John Tyson, waiters in the Custom House, to have been brought on shore and which ought to have been transported, and promised the same for any others hereafter discovered; More wood to be sent for to answer this abuse at the next Court. Committees to consider the objections against Jonas Colbach, factor, lately returned from the Indies, and his apology in answer. Note presented by Capt. Pynn, according to order, of the Company's ships to the southward in the Indies; it was observed that the Abigail, though a weak rotten ship, was trimmed up for a voyage chiefly for the accommodation of Eustace Man, that great trader, while better ships were suffered to ride at anchor, rotting at Jacatra for want of employment. One hundred pounds on account to be paid to Capt. Pynn. Report of 'Mr. Treasurer of an attachment in his hands of Mr. Hare's adventure. Richard Munck, late master of the Dove, having submitted to leave the great cabin to the merchant and have the round house to himself, was readmitted master.

Offer of Burlamachi and his partners to buy 10,000l. worth of pepper to be transported, and as sureties Sir John Wolstenholme, Sir Paul Pindar, Chas. Cockayne, and Abraham Jacob; resolved that the price should be 18d. and 19d. per lb., and to be two thirds Jambi and one third Priaman, but the price Burlamachi alleged to be too high and took time to consider till the noon exchange next day. Request of Banks concerning Dalbie's adventure. Bill for services done and money laid out by Mr. Mosse, the scrivener, while employed as the Company's solicitor before Mr. Acton's entertainment, to be paid. Names of 13 petitioners for the beadle's place, void by the death of Thomas Tiggins, read; the wages fixed at 20l. per annum, and John Spiller, some time servant to Mr. Boothby, for whom Alderman Garway gave good testimony, elected. Gratuities of 10l. to the churchwardens and overseers of Ratcliff, Limehouse, and Poplar towards relief of the poor, especially the widows and orphans of the Company's servants, and of 25s. out of the poor box to Widow Tiggins to defray the charge of her late husband's burial. 13½ pp. [Ct.

Has balanced accounts and sends ledger, debt book, original and transcripts of wills by William Slade, purser of the Discovery. The provisions of pork and beef proved very bad, and the biscuit so ill-conditioned that at least one-third has been consumed by the sea. Arrival of the Mary, Hart, Star, Hopewell, and Refuge from England, 30 November, having lost the Spy, and on 17th December the Exchange, William, Hart, and Star departed for Persia, leaving the Palsgrave, Mary, Blessing, Dolphin, Discovery, Hopewell, and Refuge in Port Swally.

Dec. 18. 567. Court Minutes of the East India Company. Mr. Acton's bill of charges to be paid. Relation by Mr. Acton of the differences in the cause of Capt. Langford against Short; it was thought fit if possible to recover the freight and recompense in some proportion the Company's damage sustained by Short's private trade. Concerning the security to be entered into by the Farmers of Customs for the bargain of pepper with Mr. Burlamachi. Proposition of Messrs. Davis, Bateman, and Smethwike for transporting the 12th division of Mr. Middleton's adventure, which they had bought, to Mr. Langham; they seemed much discontented with the Court's denial, and such was Mr. Smethwike's bold, pressing, unbeseeming carriage to Mr. Governor in particular, and to the whole Court, that it was thought fit not to pass by this affront, and for his uncivil carriage and aspersion land upon the Court it was thought meet to "battulate" or forbid him any more to come in or to trouble their house or Courts on the like occasions as formerly he had done, merely for his own ends. Resolved that though the chief cause of preparing the Dove was to give advertisement into the Indies of what accommodation was like to be made upon the stay of the three Dutch ships, she should not attend any longer, but be dispeeded away; but seeing there was no possibility to send the Jonas forth before March it was propounded to dismiss many of her men, but the resolution deferred till next Court. Though no precedent could be found for gratifying the Lord Mayor with spice at Christmas, yet in regard the present one was a great adventurer and had been a Committee, it was ordered that the like proportion that had been conferred on Alderman Fen in the time of his shrievalty be given to the Lord Mayor, and also to the sheriffs, Sir Morris Abbott and Alderman Garway, and to the latter a bag of pepper over and above, according to promise, for his good service on the sale of the Company's indigo. Gratuity of 50l. to Capt. Bond, Commander of the Convertive, with their kind salutations and hearty thanks for his pains in giving safe conduct to the London and Reformation from Portsmouth into the Thames. Ordered that the names of the private traders be inserted in the Black Book as well as in the Court Book. Report of Mr. Munck, master of the Dove, that there was no place to lay in the fish and sails, and that he wanted a larger boat; he was much blamed for speaking no sooner, and required to acquaint Mr. Steevens, and allowed such private provisions as others had had. Offer of Messrs. Wright and Woodward to buy 100 bags of pepper at 3–6 months, and promise to answer in the afternoon the Company's proposition to take 500 bags. 5 pp. [Ct. Min. Bk. X. 189–194.]
Dec. 18.
568. John Hunter to the East India Company. Sends copies of accounts of men deceased or transferred since their coming forth, from 5th April 1620 to 20th Dec. 1627, and original wills, with inventories of deceased men. Provisions have proved very good, except the biscuit received from Mr. Clifton. Endorsed, "John Hunter, purser in the William at Swat." ½ p. [O.C., Vol XI, No. 1263.]
Dec. 22–31. 569. Court Minutes of the East India Company. The Court informed that the great cabin in the Pinnace had been so divided to accommodate both Mr. Hoare and the master, and notwithstanding Mr. Hoare was much displeased, alleging that the smallness of the rooms could not be endured, he was wished to make choice of the cabins and return answer on Monday. Information of Mr. Treasurer that great sums were still weekly expended in the yard; ordered that all workmen be discharged so soon as the frigate and skiff be finished, and that all the men of the Jonas, save two carpenters and 10 men, be dismissed. This day week appointed to determine whether to send the Jonas this year or not. A pinnace to be bought. Request of Capt. Moreton for payment of 80l. debts due to him, and charged on several men's heads in the purser's book. Suit of Mr. Elsemore for his wages and debts which are supposed to have been put out at interest by (Henry) Sill, who was suspected to have much wronged the Company by employing their money at interest to his own use. Report of Mr. Deputy that he and Committees had read the complaints against Jonas Colbach and his answers, but the business is of that consequence that it must be heard at a full Court. Gratuity of 5l. to Edward Powell, who went out without wages, and is recommended by the President and Council as a good linguist. Report that Edward Collins, clerk of the powder mills, had demanded 63l. to pay wages, but as there was cause to suspect he had not dealt faithfully with moneys formerly received, ordered that the money be paid to Mr. Cappur, and that he be required to examine the business.
Dec. 24.—Request of Henry Broughe in the general letter from Jacatra, by the Expedition, that no more of his wages be paid to Anthony Brampton until his return. Packet of letters from the Dutch East India Company brought by the Expedition, delivered to Mr. Lucey, the Dutch agent, to be conveyed to Holland.
Dec. 27.—Examination of Capt. Pynn concerning the carriage of young Hawley and the President, his uncle; he declared that doubtless the President was drawn to commit many errors by the powerful persuasion of his nephew, who ruled all things, instancing the sending of the Abigail from Jacatra to the coast of Coromandel, when Capt. Pynn and Bruite Gread, carpenter of the London, made known how unfit she was, and that it were much better to use the Eagle, Falcon or Swallow, yet their counsel was utterly rejected, and Bruite Gread soundly beaten for his pains; that it was the opinion in the Indies that Eustace Man wrought young Hawley, and he his uncle, to set out that ship purposely to invest Man into an employment the better to colour his longer stay in the country for continuance of his private trade, which was very great; he also intimated young Hawley's building a junk with the Company's materials, and freighting the greatest part of her for his own account by Eustace Man's means, who supplied him with money; but said that Bruite Gread was able more particularly to inform the Company of these and other passages. Also that one John Brooke, smith in the London, a drunken, debauched fellow, had arrested Pynn on an action of battery, because three months before coming into the King's Channel he had given him correction for disobedience, and being questioned how he durst thus arrest his captain, he gave out that he durst arrest the best of the Committees; Sir Henry Marten to be acquainted with the truth of the cause, and to desire that Brooke be commanded to withdraw this action, and be punished for this vexatious suit; and resolved that if Brooke's wages, and the estate of John Brison, which he challenges as executor, be yet in the Company's hands, no part shall be paid until Brooke give satisfaction for his unjust and arrogant speeches.
Dec. 29.—Ordered that a Committee with all possible expedition meet and draw into form the Company's complaints against the Dutch, with the damages sustained by them in the Indies, and present same to the Court. The pinnace Dove to fall down to Gravesend by Monday night, and there to be supplied with things that are yet wanting. Mr. Sherburne's account audited and ordered to be paid.
Dec. 31.—Report of Mr. Acton that Sir Henry Marten had granted his warrant for the commitment of John Brookes until he withdraw his action against Capt. Pynn. The canvas at Bridewell for making pepper bags so bad and loose made that it must be provided elsewhere. The Dove to fall down to Gravesend on "Wednesday, and have her cloth, money, and other lading sent after her; ordered that 10,000 ryals of eight be sent in her, besides 40 cloths and some lead. Resolved to continue the custom of new year's gifts to the Duke and other Lords, each of whom is to have a carpet, and that 160l. be paid to Mr. Sherburne, to be disbursed to the two Secretaries, Clerks of the Council, and those who had their presents in gold last year. Ordered on motion to send the Dove direct for Bantam, that Mr. Secretary Sherburne move Mr. Secretary Coke for another letter from his Majesty to that King in regard neither of the two former had been yet delivered. A short petition to the Lords to make known the late new injustice done the Company by the Dutch at Jacatra in breaking into their warehouses there and violently taking divers chests of Japan silver upon an unjust sentence of theirs in the cause of John Maria [Moretti], the Italian, approved and ordered to be engrossed, and Wednesday next appointed for Mr. Governor and Committees to prefer it. Gratuity of 4l. to Benj, Johnson, one of the Dutch burghers who came home in the Reformation, and who was commended for having taken great pains in the ship. 9½ pp [Ct. Min. Bk. X. 194–203.]
1627 570. Petition of John Evelyn, the King's powder maker, to the Privy Council. Tied by contract to deliver great quantities of powder into his Majesty's stores on a monthly payment of 1,700l., which has not these six months been continued, petitioner has been forced to sell the powder to his Majesty's subjects. But by reason of a new grant-to the East India Company for making powder, and one Michael Waring, who has no authority to make same, there is no sale for petitioner's powder but at great loss. Prays that either his monthly payments may be continued or the East India Company and Waring restrained, no such liberty having been permitted to any but petitioner and his ancestors for above 60 years. 1 p. [Dom., Chas. I., Vol, LXXXlX.,.No. 9, Cal. p. 492.]
571. Mem. of the difference of our new privileges in Persia from the former. Two bales of silk granted in every hundred; contract to take cloths and tin at certain rates; weight of silk; freedom from charges and dangers; besides the taking of commodities on arrival and delivery of silk without delay, which heretofore hindered returns for a whole year. 1 p. [O.C., Vol. XL., No. 1272.]
