Miscellaneous, 1622

1622 ?224. Thirty Articles particularly recommended by the commission for trade for its advancement, with observations. The 28th article concerns the East India merchants, "that their trading turn not to the prejudice of the kingdom." [Three pages, in the handwriting of Sir Robert Heath. Domestic Corresp., Jac. I., Vol. CXXXV., No. 53, Cal., p. 477.]
(1622.)225. A second request of Augustine Spaldinge to the President and Council. Whereas his former request was to have their allowance for his going home with the Palsgrave, his time of covenanted serving in the country being expired, and his body sickly and weak. Their reasons so far prevailed with him, as to be willing to stay until the departure of the next ship. But having received letters from his wife and friends in England, that the Company have been most falsely informed by some that went home in the Royal James, that he has committed misdemeanours to the prejudice and wronging of the Company, his earnest request is that they would make enquiry of those chief points which his wife and friends write he is falsely accused of, especially as so many men of note and worth are now met here together, that are best able to testify the contrary; and give a certificate how they find it, and further, what his carriage and care of the Company's service has been, so that if it should please God to take him out of this vale of miseries unto the hill of His mercies before his return to England, he may send same to his wife and friends, for the Company's better satisfaction of his truth and honesty. The chief things he is accused withal are:— That he has not only prejudiced the Company by private trade, but that on the coast of Sumatra and Jacatra has sold many bales of silk for his own account. Acknowledges that he sold at several times goods to the value of 450 or 500 ryals, which were truly his own, not to spend in riot and wantonness, but for the better relief of his wife and family; but he never wronged or prejudiced his employers in the least measure. Endorsed, "Copy of a Request made by Augustine Spalding, 1622." [One page and a half. O.C., Vol. IX., No. 1109.]
Heree [? Herat.]
226. Copies of the King's firmans to all Rahdars and to Mullaimbeg, and of the King's demands. The taking silk from Guylan or Shirwan for Ispahan to be free. All viziers and governors to be ready to provide camels and mules without delay, and to guard them from place to place. The King demands coats of mail, guns of six palms length, fine cloth, morse teeth, mastiffs, water and land spaniels, Irish greyhounds, and the smallest lap-dogs to be found, well-tempered knives, some singular pieces of goldsmiths' work, some of the finest and choicest sorts of china, some of the drug called Mamoora di China, drinking glasses, and "Dehauin Franck, a kind of blue stone, whereof they make powder for eyes." Endorsed, "1622. The King of Persia his demands, with other privileges granted us, at the agents' being at Court." [One page and a half. O.C., Vol. IX., No. 1113.]
1622.227. Catalogue of writings sent for England in the Palsgrave, 1622, comprising wills, inventories, accounts, consultations, proceedings, protests, answers, letters, and certificates. Endorsed, "Catalogue of all the writings sent from Jacatra &c. into England by the Palsgrave." [One page and a half. O.C., Vol. IX., No. 1110.]
1622 ?228. Notes of bad debts, &c. at Jambi and elsewhere to be charged to W. M[anistone's] account. [One page. O.C., Vol. IX., No. 1112.]
(1622.)229. Account of goods brought into Holland by the Dutch East India Company and there sold, restorable to the English; consisting of pepper valued at 46,623l. 12s. 0d., silk at 1,786l. 8s. 10d., and "the unicorn's horn" at 400l., total 48,810l. 0s. 10d.; from which is to be deducted for freight and assurance 10,837l. 12s. 11d., leaving 37,972l. 7s. 11d. net. [Extract from Holland Corresp.]
1622–1624.230. Extracts from letters containing accounts of the sale of divers jewels in Surat belonging to Morris Abbott, and others. The 1,000l. jewel sold for 5,280 rupees. The pair of pendant pearls at 2,300 rupees. Two pair emeralds, weighing 117 and 136 carats, set in gold with two small rubies to adorn them, sold for 2,910 rupees nett. [One page.
