London.
Sir Edwin Sandys to Sec. Sir Robt. Naunton. The City of London have appointed one hundred children, from their superfluous multitude, to be transported to Virginia, there to be bound apprentices, upon very beneficial conditions. They have also granted 500l. for their passage and outfit. Some of the ill-disposed children, who under severe masters in Virginia may be brought to goodness, and of whom the City is especially desirous to be disburdened, declare their unwillingness to go. The City wanting authority to deliver, and the Virginia Company to transport these children against their will, desire higher authority to get over the difficulty. [DOMESTIC Corresp. Jac.
