August 1635

Aug.? 77. Memorial of Sir John Harvey. That the ships now bound for Virginia may be stayed until the Lords Commissioners for Plantations shall settle the government there. Reasons. And that Thos. Harwood, now in London, and one of the late mutinous assembly in Virginia, may be restrained of his liberty.
Aug. 4. 78. Similar memorial, somewhat shorter, but to the same effect as the preceding.
Aug.? 79. "Testimonies concerning Thos. Horwood's speeches at Exeter." Ant. Browne being in the house of one Ebbettson in Exeter, saw "Whorewood or Harward," newly come from Virginia; was informed that there was great contention there, that Capt. Harvey was displaced because he had done great injuries in that country, that Horwood was appointed by the country to carry letters to the King against him, and he will make great haste to be up before Sir John that he may make friends and the case good against him. Harvey had so carried himself in Virginia, that if ever he returned he would be shot. Signed by Ant. Browne.
