1626.
Aug. 21.
139. Note of papers to be signed by the King. Amongst them is a warrant to Sir Francis Wyatt, late Governor in Virginia, for liberty to import 10,000 weight of tobacco, custom free. [Extract, Dom. Chas. I., Vol., 34, No. 15.]
Nov. 29.
Dartmouth.
140. Capt. Chris. Levett to Sec. Sir John Coke. It hath pleased God to deny a blessing to the labours of us all that hath been employed in his Majesty's service at sea. Sees almost all men seek more their own ends than God's glory or their Sovereign's honour. There is no man knows better than himself what benefit would accrue unto this kingdom by New England if it were well planted and fortified, which makes him so desirous to tread out a path that all men may follow. Is now in a fair way to it, only wants a little help, the particulars he has mentioned in a petition to his Majesty. Flies unto his Honor as his only mediator. If his suit shall prove unseasonable, beseeches he will put him into a good ship. [Coke MSS., Hist. MSS. Commis., XII. Report, App. I., p. 287.]
