October 1629

Oct. 3. Sir John Heydon to Ed. Nicholas. Received a warrant on 2nd inst. for licensing the exportation of four drakes to the Amazon, for the use of that Company, which he imagines to have been permitted by special licence for defence of the plantation. [DOMESTIC Corresp. Car. I.]
Oct. 12.
29. John Fincham to [Sec. Dorchester?]. Was prevented from presenting himself before his departure with any credit, the Muscovy Company having dealt with him very unworthily, allotting only 50l. for all his losses, expenses, and dangers. Is much beholden to the Governor of the Island [of Barbadoes], Sir W. Tufton, and begs his Lordship will ask Lord Carlisle to write to the Governor in his behalf. "A pack of rebellious persons hath appeared by a conspiracy" against the Governor immediately after his arrival, which, if not severely punished, will be a main obstacle to the augmentation of His Majesty's kingdoms in the West Indies.
Oct. 17. 30. Answers by Mons. Belavene to the eight articles concerning his proposals for settling a colony in Florida, which have been communicated to the Baron de Sancé. [Endorsed by Boswell. See ante, p. 99, No. 21.] Annexed,
