any treat v with them, notwithstanding His Majesty^s declara*
, tion that he will not preiudide the Emperor thereby. Neoolalde

has also a grievance auout the ship of sugar broucht by the
Hollanders as a prize into Plymouth, and adjudged to them
b^ the Admiralty. He is now however grown wiser and de-
sires to renew the assurance given to Lord Cottington of the
restitution of the Palatinate. His Majesty dcMures to check
the suocesa- of the Hollanders by assisting^ Spain with a hrm
fleet, under pretext of the vioktion of his narbours by the
hostilities or the Hollanders and Dunkirkers. The motion
however must come from Necolalde, and Hopton must shaoe
his course accordingly, representing^ the ereat offers made oy
France, on condition of r^linquismng the Spanish Alliance.

them of remote conveniences; they will always consider the
interests of the Duke of Aivaria, and wiU greatly presume
upon any partnership. Advises therefore that the fleet be

352. Secretary IVindelank to Mr. Ilopton. The Question of
the sugar-ship has been decided in favour of the Hollanders,
but costs awarded to the Portuguese, as a favour to the King
of Spain. He is to represent the iubtice of this course, and
the tinfriendly behaviour of Necolaldo in this and other
matters. Also to hint at the offers of Prince Thomas, the
league between France and Sweden, the powerful fleet of the
Hollanders, (being twenty sail in the Channel, of which the
Admiral is of looo tons with flfty-flve brass ordnance,) and
the consequent importance of His Majesty^s friendship. Has
received from Necolalde copies of intercepted letters oetween
Richelieu, the Prince of Orange, and the States Ambassador,
with propositions to surprise Dunkirk and Gravelin without
the knowledge of England and Spain. Gerbier writes from
Druftsels that the Abbot Scaglia nas made overtures similar
to those of Prince Thomas, but holds Necolaldo unflt to be
employed in such treaty. The Hollanders have taken English
ships trading to Dunkirk, and profess their determination to
confiscate all traders with Spanish subjects.
