June 17/27.476. Points proposed on the part of the Dutch Bast India Company to Edward Misselden and Robert Barlow, commissioned by the Honorable Company of England trading to the East Indies, at Amsterdam, this 27th June 1624.
First, concerning the equipment, maintenance, and employment of the ten ships of defence on the part of the English East India Company, according to the 10th, 11th, 16th, 17th, 18th, 19th, 20th, 21st, and 22nd articles of the treaty, and the further explanation of the 10th and 13th articles of the aforesaid treaty, wherein the English East India Company have hitherto been wanting in many ways and still are.
Secondly, concerning the reglement of the trade and customs at Bantam, according to the 4th, 5th, and 6th articles of the treaty, and the express order of both the East India Companies, determined upon the 15th July 1619, O.S., at London, at the time of the conclusion of the treaty and in the explanation thereof, wherein the English East India Company has failed and still fails since August 1622.
Thirdly, concerning the trade, according to the treaty agreed to by the English East India Company, to the Moluccas, Amboyna, and Banda, following the 8th, 9th, 12th, and 15th articles of the treaty and the explanation of the 8th article, wherein the English factors have broken the treaty and failed to observe it in many ways.
Fourthly, concerning the trade with Pulicat, on the Coromandel coast, conceded to the English by the 7th article of the treaty and the explanation thereupon following, which trade they have abandoned, seeking thus to avoid the payment of half of the charge for the maintenance of the castle and garrison there, so that they owe the half, according to the aforesaid 7th article of the treaty.
These four points amongst others proposed by the Dutch Company according to the invitation of the Seventeen, by their letter of the 14 May 1624, and also the further invitation of the same Company, charging Messrs. Edward Misselden and Barlow to obtain a commission from the Very Honourable English East India Company in order to be able to give contentment and satisfaction on these points to the Dutch Company, according to the treaty, the explanation, and the resolution of the Common Council of Defence determined, decided in the Indies, just as the aforesaid Dutch Company, on occasion happening, will at the time be ready to give similar satisfaction and contentment, according to the treaty. explanation, and aforesaid resolutions, on the points which shall be proposed on the part of the English East India Company, which demand and presentation relating thereto of the Dutch Company, confided to all and each as likely to be found honest and reasonable. Executed as above. Signed Andries Rychart, Henry Brouwer, W. Boreel. Endorsed, "Certain demands made by the Deputies of the Chamber of Amsterdam about their trade and ours in the East India." Dutch.

"The most humble supplication of the generality of Adventurers trading to the East Indies to the King."
May it please your most Excellent Maty.
The testimonies of your Maty's high wisdom and your princely prudence and providence incessantly employed for the welfare of all your Loyal and loving subjects, and in particular of us, the Adventurers unto the East Indies, are so many and manifold, that we wish from our hearts that we were as well able to express our humble thanks as we have cause at this time to implore your Maty's grace and favour on our behalf.
By your Maty's especial grace & goodness we are a Company of Merchants collected & contracted out of all sorts & ranks of men, Noble, and ignoble, in all your Kingdoms. We have a great while been Agents in this action, in adventuring the lives of many & the estates of most, for the glory of God, in propagating the Gospel; the renown of your Maty in making your fame shine to the ends of the world; the benefit of all your Kingdoms, in enrich ing the same with wondrous variety & increase of trade. But now, we need not say how, we are unhappily become Patients, in such manner and measure, as the glory of God, the honour of your Maty, the welfare of your kingdoms, do all cry aloud for redress, though we should hold our peace.
The craft & the Cruelty of the Hollanders' Embargo, both in its nature & extent, are most terrible, most intolerable. Thereby many of your brave subjects' lives are lost, much blood is spilt, much dishonour offered to your sacred fame: infidelity, inhumanity, violence, hostility, Cruelly, all kinds of Injury done unto us; in ourselves, in our servants, in our ships, in our goods, in our good names. But alas, we are not only hurt and thus undone, but others are also wounded through our sides. Many of us are your Merchant-Adventurers, and in us the Drapery of the Kingdom, principally the western, suffereth: Many of us are Turkey and Eastland Merchants, and with us the Eastern Clothiers complain: Many of us are French Merchants, and with us the Northern draperies decay: Many of us are Spanish Merchants, and with us Southern clothiers cry out: Many of us are Tradesmen, and in us both City & Country complain: Many of us are men of other Conditions, & by us your Maty's supplies are not supplied as they might. For how can men go on in their particular Courses and trades, when their estates are taken away? How can the Body-Politic of this your Maty's weal-public choose but feint, when the life-blood thereof is let out? And how can your Maty's Customs but diminish very much, when Trade is thus secretly stolen away.
If our Adventures had been out of superfluity, our estates would have borne it. If we had not lost our estates, Trade had not felt it. If Trade had not suffered, there had been no complaint.
Your Maty, that Royal father of this great family of your happy Kingdoms, out of your regal care, enquireth the Causes of the decay of Trade: amongst which, we most humbly and earnestly pray your Maty to believe that there is no one Cause so much tendeth to the exceeding diminution of your Highness' Customs, the weakening of the Navigation, & the overthrow of the Trade of this former flourishing Common-wealth of yours, as doth this disaster of ours. No Embargo like this Embargo I No loss by Pirates like this loss! For against professed enemies we had either been forewarned or forearmed. But those that have plotted, or practised, or prosecuted this unhappy design are not Caesar's friends, nor do they wish well to this Sion of yours. For the loss is not only great in the detention of so great a mass of wealth so long from the Common-Wealth, but also is made greater in the prevention and interception of so Royal and rich a Trade & Treasure from this Republic: and is yet made greater & greater by their Cunning protracting & spinning out of time with us; whilst in the mean time they dispossess us & possess themselves of the whole East Indian trade.
We, therefore, your Maty's most humble, loving, & loyal subjects, wish from our hearts that we could express to your Maty the sorrow and discontentment we suffer in this action, and the whole weal-public's loss in us; and therefore do beseech your Maty for God's love, your own honour, and the welfare of all your Kingdoms, and for the eye of the world that is cast upon the issue of this cause; that your Maty will give us leave most humbly to implore your Royal power & Justice to be exercised and executed for the speedy restitution of all the wrongs we have sustained by the Hollanders in this action: And that you will not suffer herein any longer excuse, evasion, or dilatory protraction whatsoever or by whomsoever; we having great cause to suspect notwithstanding their pretences, that they aim at nothing more than the utter supplanting of us in this trade; protesting again from our hearts, that neither our estates, nor the estate of this Common-wealth can any longer endure or undergo so heavy a calamity, which if your Maty out of the sincerity of your Justice, the sweetness of your Royal nature, and the exceeding goodness of your Grace, will vouchsafe and pardon, as you are wont, if anything seem offensive herein. We and ours, our selves, our estates, our lives, & if we had any thing more dear, shall not be too dear unto us, to be employed for the honour and service of so sacred a Maty & your posterity for ever.

N.B.—On 4th Sept. 1618, Secretary Naunton in a letter to Carleton, assures him that the whole city and all parts of the kingdom are extremely exasperated against the pride of the Hollanders and Zealanders, and are in travail of complaints of the indignities received from them on all hands, both in the East Indies, the fishing in Scotland, Newfoundland, and our coasts, and where not, so as the merchants are preparing a general remonstrance against them against his Majesty's return from Progress.
