September 1629

Sept. 3. 853. Henry Lucas to Sec. Lord Dorchester. Has according to his Lordship's command delivered to Sir Morris Abbott at the East India House his Majesty's letters to the States, with his Lordship's directions that they should be conveyed to Mr. Carleton to be by him presented. He desired that the Company's sense of his Lordship's noble care of their affairs might be represented, till the Company might give their own thanks. [Extract, Dom., Chas. I., Vol. CXLIX., No. 14, Cal p. 49.]
Sept. 12.
The Hague.
854. Dudley Carleton to (Sec. Lord Dorchester). The East India Company is in hand with a new and chargeable equipage, which he understands shall go forward, notwithstanding advertisement this week received from a small ship of theirs arrived on the coast of England, that the seige of Jacatra is raised, and the Materam retired with great loss. His next shall give more particulars. [Extract, Holland Corresp.]
Sept. 22.
The Hague.
855. Dudley Carleton to (Sec. Lord Dorchester). Has delivered to the States his Majesty's Letters touching the security of our people at Bantam, and those English informed to be taken on by the East Indian Company here for the service of those parts which letter was sent to him from the English Company. Doubts not to send a satisfactory answer in both points, knowing there was no cause to apprehend any new hostility from these men, having given order to their people rather to suffer than to fly out. And as for Bantam they will not have them meddle, which he the rather believes, in regard they have enough to do with the Materam and their Indian enemies, and need not provoke new hostilities with his Majesty's subjects, this question of Bantam and all other differences being in way of accommodation betwixt the Companies. As for the other point never heard of any English captains and soldiers entertained by this Company, more than here or there a single man as always has been practised. The West Indian Company indeed has entertained a company of English under Capt. Hunks, a kinsman of Lord Conway, but it is contrary to sense that the East India Company should entertain English against English, when there is a superfluity of both high and low Dutch readier for that service than any other. Has sent to Barlow to know if any such thing be, and the States have written to the Bewinthebbers to answer these two points. [Extract, Holland Corresp.]
