that you forthwith revoke the said Sentence of banish=
ment, (which we are pleased to remit) and discharge
and set at liberty the said Laurence Gully. And
whereas We are also further given to understand, that
John Turner, Francis Loden, and John Shaddock three
Souldiers of the said Company are now in prison upon
an accusation of hauing killed one John Carrick,

said Island of Our trusty and welbeloved Colonell
Legg Lieutenant Governor of the same, whom We
haue directed to examine and giue Us an account
of that matter, that We may giue such directions
as We shall think requisite for the preventing all
disputes that may for the future arise between Our
Officers and Souldiers and you. And for so doing
this shall be your Warrant. And so We bid you
