Jan. 29.
The Hague.
109. Sir Dudley Carlcton to John Chamberlain. Prays him to show Sir Dudley Digges the writer's Virginia Papers, and then return them to Carleton, letting him know when there is a passage thither, for he has compassion of poor Porie being hunger-starved for news. [Extract, Correspondence, Holland.]
Jan. 31. 110. Court Minutes of the East India Company. Thomas Jones, a servant of Lord Warwick, arrested by the Company for turning away their men, being now employed to go to Virginia with cattle by his Lordship, who desires his release, order is given to set him at liberty, Lord Warwick engaging to answer for what shall be objected against him. [Court Minute Bk., Vol. 4, p. 506.]
May 13.
111. Sec. Sir Robt. Naunton to Sir Dudley Carleton. Capt. Roger North, one of my Lord North's brothers, that was out with Sir Walter Raghley (sic) having derived a Commission from a Patent which his Majesty had granted for the erecting of a Company incorporated to make a plantation by the river of Amazons in America, and being restrained by his Majesty's command upon a complaint of the Count Gondomar, pretending his Master to have as good right to that tract as he hath to Madrid or Toledo, is suddenly stole away and gone with some four or five sail, which hath much offended his Majesty, and we are all busied to revoke him and stay all supplies that were to follow him. It is his Majesty's command that if he shall give out to any of the Merchants or Seamen of that State that he is gone with his Majesty's leave or Commission, to resolve them there is no such matter, but that his Majesty doth utterly disavow this course, and will chastise his contempt when he shall be taken. Orders to publish a proclamation to declare him rebel, and charge all his Majesty's subjects who shall meet him to bring him home by strong hand. The Proclamation, which is dated two days after this letter, is abstracted in the first volume of this Calendar, p. 23. [Corresp., Holland.]
