MADRID,
4th May, 1638.
SUMM ARY.
The Council reports that it has before it a letter from
Don Diego Lopez de Escobar dated the 27th May 1637.

In this letter he relates that the Dutch have been settled
in Tobago for four years and he has now driven them out
and captured them. He had sent the Justicia Mayor and
the Captain to Spain in charge of Captain Vincente de
Vressti but had kept the Governor with him because he was
young and sick.

Don Diego states that this Governor is the son of Juan
de Moris (Jan de Moor) a native of Vilenburg. Don Juan
is a very rich man and is supporting strongly the Dutch
efforts in these parts.

The Council recommends that the cost of this expedition
taken by Don Diego Lopez de Escobar to drive the Dutch
from Tobago be paid from the Royal Treasury.
