Sept. 6. The Hague. 896. Carleton to Sec. Naunton. As to the States' desire of conjunction of his Majesty's fleet and theirs against the pirates, Carleton informed the States that his Majesty having undertaken the enterprise with the King of Spain, it was not res integra to join with the States, as before, and that they might easily imagine, if they considered the usage his Majesty's subjects had received from the Dutch of late in the East Indies, that he had reason sooner to join with any than with them ; nevertheless, if their fleet came thither his Majesty, for his part, would not refuse their help in so good a cause. Answer of the States ; and for what had happened in the Indies it was the fortune of war, and they are sorry for it, as both are weakened thereby, their merchants being by contract to make restitution, as they expect the like from the English Company. The benefit of their conjunction, and their acknowledgments to his Majesty, which, if he had not effected, the Spaniard would have chased both Companies out of the Indies. Carleton's reply ; and concerning the proceedings in the East Indies, that his Majesty complained of their prosecuting a war against his subjects when a treaty of accommodation was on foot, and that the States showed that they justified their merchants' doings, and espoused their quarrel, rather than disavow it, for which and many other reasons his Majesty remained very ill satisfied.
