Miscellaneous, 1673

(1673.) 1191. A brief collection by Robert Bevin and Edwin Stede, Agents for the Royal African Company, with the advice of Council of the defects in the Laws of Barbadoes for the recovery of debts, which are not only repugnant to those of England, but also ineffectual in themselves, by their dilatoriness before judgment, uncertainty of levying execution, and many other inconveniences that the execution is clogged with. Endorsed by John Locke, "Barbados. Defects of Laws in Barbados by Mr. Bevin and Mr. Steed, '73. Copy." 4 pp. [Col. Papers, Vol. XXX., No. 96.]
1673. 1192. "The Second Memorial delivered to his Majesty by the Agent of the Duke of Courland." That because there is a strong report of the Swedish Mediators procuring a general Peace, and that the Dutch have for fifteen years past wrongfully detained the island of Tobago from the Duke, that in case of a treaty, a Commission be inserted by his Majesty to treat of the Duke's concerns so that he likewise may reap some fruits of same. Annexed,
1192. I. The Duke of Courland's affairs concern the Island of Tobago, the island of Gambia, now in the Royal Commissioners possession, and his pretensions for ammunition, corn, ships, &c., furnished his Majesty. Together, 6 pp. [Col. Papers, Vol. XXX, Nos. 97, 98.]
1673. 1193. An Act passed in the Island of Montserrat, impowering Justices of the Peace to order labourers wages; and restraining persons going on board ships or other vessels. Printed in "Acts of Assembly passed in the island of Montserrat from 1668 to 1740 inclusive. London, 1740." [Col. Entry Bk., No. LV., p. 31.]
