December 1573

1573. 20. “A discovery of lands beyond the Equinoctial.” Arguments on the matter offered to be attempted:—that it is feasible; the means to achieve it, and good to grow from it; answer to objections; no injury to any prince or country, nor any offence of amity; not to be at the Queen's charge. With a request to Her Majesty to grant Letters Patent “to the authors and fellowship of this voyage in nature of a corporation;” to establish a form of government “in some persons of the company of this adventure;” to give letters in favour of the voyage, and also letters of commendation to “all princes and people for their loving and favorable entertainment and traffic;” and to confirm special rules and orders “as the company shall think meet to be kept among them” for direction of the voyage, &c. [Five pages. Indorsed, by Burghley, as above, with the date 1573. Brit. Mus., Lansdowne, C., fol. 142–146.]
