free liberty to all H.M. subjects that have commission from
Forreigners being in amity with H.M., to export in Dutch or
neutrall ships directly for France any commodity of the growth
or production of the English Plantations in America, except

by any of H.M. Custom-house Officers, ships of warr or privateers.
