The second expedition to Spain 1626 to 1627

This is my attempt at translating the document "The second expedition to Spain was from 12 November 1626 to 10 July 1627" that wsa provided by Mr. Carl Stapel. "This concerns the outfitting of the second fleet of warships in the service of the admiralties. The hiring of the men was not paid, but the admiralties were assisted with the victualling and arming of the ships. The admiralties would propose captains to Prince Hendrick and he would appoint them.
