      JAMES by the Grace of God King of England, Scotland, Fraunce, and Ireland, Defendor of the Faith, &. To all to whome those present shall come, greeting : Whereas Our wel beloued subiect, Benedict Webbe, of Kingswood, in Our countie of Wiltes, clothier, having in his travaile beyond the seas, about twentie yeares last past, observed a kinde of oyle to be made of rapeseed and other smale round seedes for the vse of clothing, and vppon manie chargeable triallf and endeavors continued almost euer since hath now at last attained to
      the pfect art and skill of making the said oyle of rape seede and other smale seedes aforesaid, which oyle, vppon triallf thereof made by manie clothiers of Our coilties of Wiltes, Gloucester, and Somersett, is found far better for the vse of clothing then that which hath been yeerely bought out of the Low Countries, and as vsefull as the Spanlshe oyle yeerely imported into this Our kingdome of England, and bought att deere rates and prices, for the vse of the finest sort of clothes. By which manufacture and invencion of making the said
      vsefull oyle of seedes at home within our owne dominions the whole drapie of this Our kingdome may be in shorte time supplied with fitting oyle for clothing without the helpe of anie oyle from forreine partes, and cheaper rates then are now paid for the same; besides the setting of manie of our poore subject on worke, and the great enriching of much barren land in this Our kingdome, for that the said oyle seedes doe best psper vppon drie and
      ?andie grounds, which, being otherwise of small vse and pffitt, will, after some few yeeres imploym^ in tillage for the said oyle seede, become fruitfull for corne, and giue good retome to the husbandman.
