31. Sir John Digby to Sir Dudley Carleton. "Hot dispute" with the Spanish Secretary of State, about the English plantations in Virginia. The Secretary complained of King James giving permission to his subjects to plant in Virginia and the Bermudas, which of right belonged to the King of Spain, whose title to those lands, he urged, was indisputable by the conquest of Castile, and by the Pope's Bull of Donation. Arguments on both sides. Desires the Secretary would provide against the English merchants being wronged by way of fact, and that disputes as to title might be decided by fair courses between the two Kings. [Copy. Extract.
