Chapter Summary

This chapter contains the English translation of chapter XIII of Hugo Grotius' Mare Liberum, and screenshots of each page of the original text written in Latin. Both law and equity require the (East) Indian trade be as free, it follows that to maintain all hazards either by coming to a peace agreement with the Spaniards, or by concluding a truce, or by continuing the war. So far as peace is concerned, it is well known that there are two kinds of peace, one made on terms of equality, the other on unequal terms. On following the principles an arbitrating good man would adjudge to the Dutch the freedom of trade, and would forbid the Portuguese and others from using force to hinder that freedom, and would order the payment of just damages.
