Addenda 1625

March 15.
138. Geo. Lord Baltimore to Sir John Coke, Commissioner for the Navy Intends shortly, God willing, a journey for Newfoundland, to visit a plantation he began there some few years since. Hired the Jonathan, now in the river, for transportation of himself and such plants as he carries with him. Understands she is stayed for the King, to whom it is good reason all his occasions should give place, but is by that means utterly disappointed, and Sir John should do him a favour to clear her and her mariners and also the Peter Bonadventure, for which he contracted for carrying over cattle. Whatever favour Sir John shows therein my Lord Duke will not be displeased with it. [Coke MSS., Hist. MSS. Commis., XII. Report, App. I., p. 187.]
