Trade Wars Through The Ages

Advertisement

"Great talk of the Duch proclaiming themselfs in India lords of the Southern Seas and deny traffique there to all ships but their own, upon pain of confiscation -- which makes our merchants mad. Great doubt of two ships of ours, the Greyhound and another very rich, coming from the Streights, for fear of the Turkes."

-- From the diary of Samuel Pepys, February 9, 1664
