A PROCLAMATION, Forbidding His Majesties Subjects to give Assistance to any the Subjects of the King of Spain now in Rebellion against him.


WHereas Complaint hath been made unto Vs by Don Pedro Ronquillos, Envoy Extraordinary from his Catholick Majesty the King of Spain, That several Merchants and others Our Subjects, have carried Pro­visions, and given Assistance and Succour to those of Messina in the Kingdom of Scicily, now in Rebellion against his said Catholick Ma­jesty, contrary to the Treaty made in 1667, between Vs and the said King; We being desirous to give all just Satisfaction to Our good Brother the King of Spain, and to maintain inviolably the Articles contained in the said Treaty, do by this Our Royal Proclamation expresly Enjoyn and Command all Our Subjects of what Condition soever, That they forbear giving any manner of Assi­stance, Countenance or Succour to those of Messina, or any other of his Catholick Ma­jesties Subjects in Rebellion against him, upon pain not onely of Our high Displeasure, but suffering such Punishment as by Law may be inflicted on such as wilfully violate our Treaties, and infringe the Peace betwixt the two Crowns.

God save the King.
