IRUN, SPAIN,
8th November, 1615.
The King-To Diego Palameque de Acuna who I have
named as My Governor and Captain General of the Island
of Trinidad and the Province of Guayana.
In a letter of the 24th May of this year, Don Juan Tostado
writes to me that in the year 1613 a ship went right up the
River Orinoco as far as the town and then anchored lower
down the river where she remained for several days. This
delay has caused some suspicion that trade had been carried on.
Furthermore in December of last year 1614, three other
ships came which made these suspicions certain since if the
first had not traded, the others would not have come.
This having been considered in my Council of the Indies,
it has pleased me to order you as I do now order and command
you, that as soon as you have arrived at your government
you should make investigation as to those who have traded
and held dealings with the enemy after the promulgation
of the general pardon which I granted to the inhabitants.
Those you find guilty, you shall punish according to law
reporting to me what you have done.
For the future I require you to take particular care to
provide any remedy necessary to prevent this said trade and
to keep the enemy from going to this said port in Guayana.

IRUN,
8th November, 1615.
I, THE KING.
By order of the King, Our Lord.


JUAN RUIZ DE CONTRERAS.
