Hawkins' License to trade on the North Coast of Hayti, dated April 19, 1563

And by these presents in so far as I am authorized and by law may so do, and no further, I grant you license to sell the said thirty-five negroes, with the proviso above set forth; provided further that you sell them within twenty days and within the said period furnish your ships and depart. Otherwise I may freely attack you.
