"(1652) [Dec. 24] 52. Propositions of Abraham Stock, merchant of Dover, to the
[Council of State] to furnish tar at 20 1. the last of 12 barrels, and
rosin at 18 1. the ton, to be delivered at Dover for ready money on con-
dition, —

1. That he may have leave to purchase two prizes on appraisement,
to send to Norway and the Eastland for tar, the value to be deducted
from his first payment.

2. To have leave to employ therein such men as he pleases, the
Acts of Parliament notwithstanding.

3. To have strict orders for pass, and letters of assistance.

4. In case the vessels miscarry, he engages to pay for them.

5. To have leave to import the goods at first from Holland, as it is
too soon to send any vessel to Norway, and then he will endeavour
to bring in some cordage, hemp, masts, and clapboard.

6. If these propositions are not approved, he offers himself as a
factor for purchase of the said goods. — Dover, 23rd December 1652.
