Miscellaneous 1661

[1661?]1,105. Petition of William Earl of Kinnoull to the King. I am still most willing to comply with your Majesty's wish to have the Caribbee Islands in your own hands, upon receipt of reasonable compensation. In obedience to your desire I have made several proposals which were never agreed with, offering to accept the Leeward Islands in satisfaction of my interest, which you would not accept. Since then you have offered me £500 a year at present and £500 more when Lord Carlisle's debts were paid, besides a considerable sum of money out of Scotland. I beg you, therefore, to order that, after seven years, that is immediately after the expiring of Lord Willoughby's lease, I may receive £500 a year, and after that £1,000 a year, and that meanwhile these means may be secured to me and my heirs in due form, and that meanwhile you will grant me an assignment upon Scotland for [blank] pounds, and renew my lease of the customs of the potashes for twenty-one years. 1 p.
