Shall know this year whether to keep this factory or no ; if they do, it must be better supplied than heretofore, as all their other factories must be. Compare the state of their factories to those of the Dutch. The commodities from a Chinese junk have been equally divided between them and the Dutch ; their description and prices. [One page.

[Nov. ?] 924. Petition of Thos. Barwicke, prisoner in the Marshalsea, to the Privy Council. By unjust and untrue informations his worthy masters the East India Company were drawn to have the petitioner committed to Newgate, and then to the Marshalsea, where he hath remained upwards of three months, to the utter undoing of himself, his wife and children, having lost all his estate by the Flemings in the Indies. His answers to all things objected against him show the petitioner does not deserve the heinous aspersions that his enemies have cast upon him. Prays for his release. [Domestic Corresp. Jac. I., Vol. CXVII., No. 102, Cal., p. 195.]
1620. Nov. 30. 925. Robt. Bacon to Sir Clement Edmondes.
