The Darien Venture by the Company of Scotland (1698-1700)

This exhibit looks at two instances of print culture related to the Company of Scotland's Darien venture during 1698-1700. The first is a ballad that celebrates the arrival of the Company at Darien in Panama, praying for a successful venture that would bring Scotland financial relief (1699). The second is a petition made by the Council-General of the Company of Scotland to King William, requesting his protection and official endorsement, accompanied by William's response to the petition (1700).
