[...] LA Fontaine, at the Court, to his friend William Moris, deputy vice-admiral of Pwllheli and those parts,

The bearer, John Fumeaux, a poor Frenchman, came to the French ambassador complaining that William Moris arrested his ship, which was loaded with salt and going to Ireland to fetch corn, of which he had proof and passports. William Moris, though he saw these, nevertheless stopped him, and sent away all his men. It is strange that one put in trust to do justice should molest a poor stranger from greed to get his goods and make him good prize, with no other cause than the lie written by William Moris to Dr Caesar. The ambassador has credit with the Queen to have justice done upon his request. William Moris cannot make the ship a wreck nor good prize, - it is in good condition and neither Spaniard nor Leaguer; he has no cause but his greed for money. Writes by command of the ambassador, who requests William Moris to deliver the ship and goods without any 'chargee paying', otherwise the Admiral will not believe William Moris's words. Let William Moris use his discretion and not trouble the poor man otherwise the Ambassador will show him what authority he has on poor Frenchmen's rights. He does not seek to molest anyone, but cannot suffer to see poor men vexed who are the King's subjects. Let William Moris act so that he can answer for himself when questioned.
