dities as vendible upon the coast, there 1m in^ a place newly dis-
covered per Captain Christian, now captain of the Globe, called
Cotatinga; a place which venteth much cloth of these sorts above
said, as also yieldeth much pepper and fine gold of divers sorts,
the one good for England, the other good for the Molucoes and
for the factory of Sacadaney, as also other places not yet certainly
known. The people of these places desire of it rather than rials.
The Osiander to go for Jappan, but first to touch at the factories
of Puttaney and Syam to visit and relieve them. The Thomasine
to go for the Molucoes to second the Concord if she be able to
fetch the place whereto she is bound, it being much feared the
time of the year is too far spent ; but if she cannot, then to go to
Temore and Gresse, as also to seek trade upon the coast of Java
upon the back side. And the Samaritan to return for England,
wherein the General doth intend per the grace of God to continue,
being all the speed made that may be for her sooner despatch.
The Thomasine is now ready to set sail, wherein goeth merchant
John Bailye. The Osiander will be the next, wherein there goeth
chief commander Nicholas Hawkins. And the Thomas last,
wherein goeth Mr. Millward chief merchant, and William Nicolls
his assistant. We look for the ships from Surratt very shortly,
having but small store of men at present to supply so many
factories as already are and to establish more where there is hope
of good to be done ; but God sending us life and health and a
blessing to our labours, we hope so to endeavour ourselves to find
out as many places as may vend great quantity both of Surratt
and Meslapattam cloth for the maintenance of these trades, with-
out the which they will not be worth anything in this place, of
itself venting but small store and at bad rates. Not doubting,
by the help of God, whereas now I writ partly of hopes, that at
the return of these ships from their pretended voyages I shall be
able to write of assurances. Thanks be to God our Englishmen
stand better in health here in Bantam than formerly they have
done. Whether it be our changing of houses, having a better air
at our new house than formerly we had at our old house, or
what else it is, I know not ; but the blessing of God I am sure it
is. Thus not having further to trouble your Worships at present



EAST INDIA COMPANY'S RECORDS 339

but to entreat you to have this conceit of me, that soever I know
either for your profit or prejudice I will by the first advise you
of it, that the one may be followed for advantage the other be
prevented for to shun inconvenience, I humbly take [my] leave,
praying to God daily, as my duty is, to bless and prosper as well
yourselves as your affairs both in England and here in [ ]

that they may redound to the glory of God, the great benefit of
[the] right worshipful Company, and the credit of us your Wor-
ships' servants and factors here in the Indies.

Your Worships' servant to command to the
utmost of his power and might,

John Jourdain to George Ball, cape merchant of the Concord.
Bantam, the 23rd February, 1614.

|OVING Friend Mr. Ball, my commendations remem-
bered to yourself with the rest of your company etc-
This may be to certify you that the 13th of this present
here arrived General David Middleton with three ships,
viz. the Samaritan, the Thomas, and this ship the Thomasine.
The effect of the worshipful Company's letters is as the former
sent by the Concord, and therefore I will not be tedious therein,
only touch the chief points which concerneth the business, not
doubting but before this come to your hands you will be in good
forwardness about your lading. And therefore this ship is sent
to second you, either to stay about Amboina or else for Banda, as
per the commission given by the General may more largely
appear etc.

The Thomas is to go for Sumattra about a month hence
and the Osiander for Jappon. The Samaritan for England, if
pepper may be found for money, for at present by reason of five
China junks, which are here in Bantam the pepper is worth
16 rials per ten sacks, and not to be had for money, and the
three ships now newly come have brought little. And the

Hollanders are altogether without money until the coming of their
ships which they expect daily, and we the like from Suratte,
wherein comcth Captain Downton for General. Kewee doth con-
tinue his villainy according to his ordinary use, for I shall be
forced to give a great price for pepper for his default, and yet in
doubt whether I shall be able to get the lading of the Samaritan
or not etc.

At the meeting of this ship the Thomasine, I pray call a
council concerning the worshipful Company's business, what is
best to be done either for Banda or any other place where the vent
of cloth may be had. For if occasion serve that there be hope of
any other place, as per your intelligence you may understand,
or any hopes for a future good, either for the sale of goods or
commodities, by a general council you may direct this ship, pro-
vided always that you have an especial care that they go not
under any of the Hollanders' castles, because the ship is of small
force, much less under the Spaniards' command, except you have
certain advice or great hope of future good.

And if all hopes should fail of the lading of the two ships,
it is ordained that they, or one of the ships, at their return home-
ward repair for Timor, Gracia and Japara for to view the country
and what is there to be done, according to my last directions by
you ; and if there be any good to be done, to settle factories in
either place ; if not, to send one of the ships for Sacadana with
the remainder, and there as shall be thought fitting to leave goods
accordingly, as by my former order by yourself may be seen, as
also the like order is given Mr. Bailye by the General, to the which
I refer me. I pray commend me to Mr. Cokayne and Mr. Sophony
with the rest of your merchants, not forgetting the master.

This ship hath about I2v rials in cargazon in money, gold
and Choramandell cloth, as per the same cargazon may appear,
but for Suratt goods they have none, because I think there is
enough to furnish all places in your ship. Thus not having else
at present, only praying the Almighty to bless and prosper your
proceedings and send you well to Bantam, whose company I much
want in this time of troublesome business.

Your loving friend always,

John Jourdain.

Our friend Mr. Peter Floris departed the 21st of this present
with Captain Christian, well furnished out of these ships to their
contents ; but our friend Mr. Cobb remaineth. I made a protest
against them for not carrying him but all would not serve, but
remaineth here like himself far worse than in former time.
