Announcement of the High Council

of the Verenigde Provinciën

 

 


After several weeks of interrupting merchant shipping in the home waters of the colonies of the Verenigde Provincien, the pirate mob has recently declared war and their intent to raid and pillage the Dutch lands on the North coast of South America. As such, the Dutch admiralty has placed the Navy into high alert. It is time for WAR!

 

The Dutch Colonies are now recruiting for their fleets all able captains willing to do their duty to defend Dutch merchant trading. If you, captain, want to serve the Dutch Nation, contact one of our fleet admirals!

Announcement of the Dutch High Council

 

 

 

The Honorable Lords of the Dutch High Council wish to inform the relavant parties that after a period of recieving threating actions, unprovoked and unnecessary issuance of letters de Marquis against our marvelous nation in the waters from St. Louis to Jeremie, we were informed that the Danish navy is in a hostile status against the fleets of the Verenigde Provincien.

 

We consider these agressive acts against the Fleets of the Verenigde Provincien as a break of the existing alliance between both nations such that this status came to an end.

 

 

These circumstances now dictate that the Dutch Nation help the Danes [Who we now have no pact with] or the Swedes [Who we have a defensive pact with]. The Dutch High Council have agreed to respect the defensive pact with the swedish and to help them in their defensive war against danish and their allied forces to protect their territory.

 

 

We call every captain to offer his service to one of our Dutch Fleets and to dutifully serve the Dutch Nation!

ANNOUNCEMENTS

by

The Dutch West Indies Consortium,

17th of June 1716, Willemstad, Curaçao.



The Dutch Companies and Fleets, represented by the High Council of the Dutch West Indies Consortium within the Republiek der Zeven Vereenigde Provinciën, to all who will see or is expected to read this, extend their greetings. In the importance of the welfare of our lands, that exists in principle because of shipping and trading, which since ancient times from the same lands are fortunate and blessed to be connected to other countries and kingdoms,


IT IS DECIDED, (SOO IST),


that the current defensive pact between the proud Kingdom of Sverige and the Republiek der Zeven Vereenigde Provinciën has proven to be a very strong and trustful relationship. It has pleased His Royal Majesty, King Gustav Adolphus, by the Grace of God, of the Swedes, the Goths, and the Vends, Grand Prince of Finland, Duke of Pomerania, Prince of Rügen and Lord of Wismar, Heir to Norway and Duke of Schleswig-Holstein, Stormarn and Dithmarschen, Count of Oldenburg and Delmenhorst, etc. etc, to affirm our mutual reliable cooperations and trustful correspondence by obligatory law. The Staaten Generaal of the Vereenigde Provinciën in presence of the Prince of Orange and with the full and unanimous support of all the Dutch Companies and Fleets within the Dutch West Indies Consortium, represented by their High Council,  have expressed the valuable and blessed partnership by affirming a full alliance between the Sverige Crown and the Vereenigde Provinciën in extending and exploiting the Caribbean territories and efforts, achieving together a dawning age of common prosperity, peace and profit.


IT IS DECIDED, (SOO IST),


that after a long time of peace, mutual respect and common interests between both nations, the Staaten Generaal of the Vereenigde Provinciën in presence of the Prince of Orange, with full and unanimous support of the Companies and Fleets of the Dutch West Indies Consortium, represented by their High Council and His Majesty George the Third, by the Grace of God, King of Great Britain, France, and Ireland, Defender of the Faith, and so forth, with full support of the British Colonial Council in Port Royal, agreed on an anti-piracy alliance, to secure Caribbean trading routes and to end the so called “age of piracy”. Whenever it’s possible, suspects of piracy and their related suspected supporters can be hunted and punished without warning or repercussions. Both nations agree on mutual help in times of high danger and threat to their Caribbean colonies.


IT IS DECIDED, (SOO IST),


that the Dutch West Indies Consortium and its amalgamated Companies and Fleets, by action of their unanimous High Council, will hand a formal Letter of Complaint and Abhorrence to the French Council in response to the personal and public discrediting of our diplomatic corps. Even though opinions between the Dutch and French council have not been aligned the past months on the subjects of peace, anti-piracy and the interest of stability in the eastern parts of the Caribbean, it makes no sense to us that our diplomats are blamed for the Consortium’s decisions or messages. We demand the same respect for our messengers and diplomats, that our Council asks of our own to give, in spite how inconvenient or difficult it might sometimes be. We know many of the French captains as chivalrous and upright in anyway and would like to continue to improve our relationship on that basis. Without significant change in attitude and mutual respect, the High Council of the Dutch West Indies Consortium is forced to consider a long term uneasy relationship with isolation and limited diplomatic contact with representatives of the French Corps Diplomatique, their council and their respectable and gentle captains, until further notice.


IT IS DECIDED, (SOO IST),


that the alliance between the Kingdom of France, represented by the French Council of the Colonial Territories in the West Indies and the Republiek der Zeven Vereenigde Provinciën has been cancelled by the French, tête-à-tête and with ordinance. The High Council of the Dutch West Indies Consortium, empowered by the Staaten Generaal of the Vereenigde Provinciën to make it publicly known, formally respect the French decision and the acknowledgement by the Staaten Generaal, without presence of the Prince of Orange.

 

 

We call every captain to offer his service to one of our Dutch Fleets and to dutifully serve the Dutch Nation!

The Dutch High Council representing the Staaten General and the Prince of Oranje in the West Indies do hereby declare war against Spain.

 

 

This is in response to current conflict against our ally the Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland by Spain. The Dutch Admiralty have received reports of Spanish frigates entering Dutch territorial waters and attacking Dutch Merchantmen and ships of the Dutch Navy.

 

This WAR is hereby declared to exist as of the 3rd of July, seventeen hundred and sixteen.

 


We call every captain to offer his services to one of our Dutch Fleets and Companies and dutifully serve the Vereenigde Provinciën


 



We are looking for new captains for War and Trading/Fishing
