MADRID,
22nd November, 1630.
SIRE-By the Cedula of the 21st November of the year
1625, Your Majesty was pleased to extend for six years to
the vecinos of the Island of Trinidad and of Guayana, the
time during which the tobacco taken to the City of Seville
should be exempt from the dues of Almoxarifago and Alcabala
belonging to Your Majesty and also from the dues of Diezmo
and Chancelleria.
Now on behalf of the vecinos of this said Island of Trinidad
and of Guayana, it has been represented that this time expires
shortly and that these vecinos are in greater distress now than
when this exemption was extended, that the enemy have
settled these coasts and sacked the town of Guayana in the
month of December in the year 1629 and that this land is
new and has no other produce by which the vecinos can
maintain themselves and extend and increase the settlement.
The vecinos now therefore beseech Your Majesty to be
pleased to extend this privilege for eight years more. After
carefully considering the circumstances and reasons for this
application, it appears to the Council that it would be
advisable to extend these privileges for three years more.
May Your Majesty direct as may be your pleasure.

Madrid,
22nd November, 1630.
